I’m a publisher looking to meet with other developers. Can I attend BitSummit?

Publishers interested in attending BitSummit have a couple of options. Our preferred option for publishers if for them to become official sponsors. Sponsorship gives you booth space on the show floor, gives you access to developer contact information, an invite to our developer mixer, and a host of other benefits.
