Sponsorship Opportunities

About the Sponsor Program

The International Informix Users Group is pleased to announce a new sponsorship program! Becoming an IIUG sponsor is an easy and inexpensive way of promoting your Informix-related products.

In addition to promoting your Informix products and services, the sponsorship program will help the IIUG achieve its goal of promoting and protecting the interests of the many businesses and organizations that rely on Informix products daily.

The sponsorship program, available only to IBM Business Partners, will follow a three-tier approach. The benefits and costs of each of the tiers are as follows:

Sponsorship Levels

  • Your company will be featured in the Informix Business Directory listing and will appear before standard “Informix Business Directory” listings when found as part of a search
