You may use sponsors to help support your HUG events by providing event space, food/refreshments or SWAG, and you may invite speakers from HubSpot or other companies to participate in your HUG events. While these arrangements are up to you, we ask that you please be sure to follow these guidelines.
Excluded Speakers and Sponsors:
Please do not use any major competitor of HubSpot as a speaker or sponsors for HUG events or any other sponsors that we determine may negatively reflect on or affect us, our prospects, or our customers. When in doubt, reach out to the program team for guidance.
What to Look for in a Speaker or Sponsor:
We encourage you to seek speakers and sponsors who have a similar ideology as you and the HUG program. They should be excited about community-building and providing opportunities for networking and learning.
Displaying Sponsor Logos:
You are responsible for making sure it’s clear that HubSpot is not affiliated with sponsors and does not endorse their products or services.
- Share sponsors’ logos on Bevy under the "Sponsorship" tab and at the beginning/end of any slides utilized during the event.
- Display sponsors’ logos at in person events only in appropriate places (i.e., if a sponsor is providing SWAG, please limit their logo to SWAG items)
- State that the sponsor is an official partner of HubSpot or has any business with HubSpot.
- Brand the event around the sponsor’s branding in a way that looks like the event is affiliated with this organization.
