Sponsor a department event

Summer Festival

(Coming up on 21 June 2018)

The TUM Department of Informatics holds a summer festival each year at the end of the summer semester. Targeted at the department’s students, doctoral candidates and employees, the festival serves as a forum to strengthen students’ ties to the department and intensify their contact with department and staff. The primary goal is to create a fun atmosphere with food, beverages and music. Over the past few years, we have hosted some 1500 guests for each event. Support the festival as a sponsor!

Your company can benefit as follows:

  • Hand-out promotional material and giveaways during the entire event from your information booth in the main hall, or “Magistrale” Personal contact with young computer scientists is guaranteed!
  • Add an individual touch!  Offering attractive promotions, such as a cocktail, ice cream or coffee bar at your booth, or organizing contests, draws attention to your company and leaves a positive impression.
  • Place your logo on various promotional materials for the event and reach your target audience in advance of the festival!
  • Use social media while promoting the festival to reach IT enthusiasts. The TUM Department of Informatics Facebook page has more than 6600 friends
