TinyCon is an opportunity for sponsors to get their brands in front of an educated, tech-savvy audience with years of training in game and software development.ย  Many of Society of Play's membership have "graduated" from aspiring developers to full time professionals: in the last year alone, members from our community have been hired as engineers and designers at studios like Gearbox, Blizzard, and Aggro Crab.ย 

Our Mega-Patron Tier is designed for our community to help us fund this event and ones in the future, while attending the event and getting cool merch!

Additionally, as Society of Play is a 501(c)-3 nonprofit, all sponsorships for TinyCon are tax-deductible.

Sponsor TC5 here! More info TBA.

Sponsor info will in our Tiny Con newsletter when available.
