Invitation to Sponsor

Lean Agile KC is the only conference in Kansas City devoted to Lean and Agile learning. The conference features a wide range of topics like Lean UX, DevOps, coaching agile teams, culture, and organizational change.

What is the format?

LAKC is a two day conference at the KU Edwards Campus, Nov. 5-6, 2019.  There are three major content components: traditional sessions, deep dives, and Open KC (a modified Open Spaces session that consist of informal discussions in an open setting). The Open KC event allows a unique opportunity for sponsors to engage with attendees and speakers.

This will be a different sponsorship opportunity than typical conferences. Instead of driving attendees to a booth or table, we encourage sponsors to engage naturally with our attendees and speakers through the available collaborative space. In fact, there will not be sponsor booths or tables available. Sponsors will have the opportunity to show their support for Lean and Agile methods by participating in the sharing and learning.

Who will attend?

Attendees and speakers are engineers, testers, analysts, project managers, product managers, executives, ScrumMasters, Product Owners and entrepreneurs who care about Lean and Agile. These are the change agents who make Agile work in their workplace. If the conference sells out (and we expect it will), the total number of attendees and speakers will be 250+.

In short, Agilists attending this conference will be the local and regional practitioners who care enough about their craft to take time to share and learn from their peers.

Day of Event – Less tradition, more engagement
