The Cray User Group depends on the gracious financial support of our sponsors. Eligible sponsors are sought from the hardware, software and service industries that complement Cray computing sites worldwide. Eligible sponsors are identified by Cray, Inc. through their Strategic Alliance and Partner Programs. Our objective is to provide a complimentary mechanism to the CUG Conference Technical Program that provides participating companies a viable opportunity to talk with the Cray User community about their products and services, and learn from the attendees about the features and capabilities that they need.
The following information is furnished for CUG 2012 Sponsor use.
Sponsor opportunities opened in January 2012. The current list is provided here as reference. Interested sponsors who have not yet responded to the Sponsorship Opportunity should contact the CUG at your earliest opportunity.

Every person attending CUG must be registered. Your participation as a Sponsor provides some number of complimentary registrations that you may use at your own discretion. You will receive these registrations from the CUG Treasurer as a series of one or more Sponsor Codes that are entered on the first page of your event registration. Any registrations for Company participation beyond the number of complimentary registrations is permitted. In addition, we protect the conference registration rate for these extra participants so that it is always locked in at the Early Bird rate. Sponsors are also welcome to bring a Guest, such as a spouse. Please note that there is a separate nominal registration fee of $50 USD (about 39 EUR) for Guests for the CUG Night Out Social Event. This fee helps to offset our costs for the event.
CUG has a contract with the Hotel Maritim as both the event hotel and as the conference property. CUG has negotiated special rates for both single and double occupancy that includes breakfast and other benefits not afforded to regular reservations. Please do not make reservations outside of the hotel block as this negatively affects our ability to meet a contractual minimum number of room nights. You may make your reservation directly with the Maritim using the link provided here. Please reference the room block HOC200512 for the Cray User Group to ensure both rate and availability.
Please note: the deadline for reservations at the conference rate is 5th March, 2012. After this date rooms will be subject to availability and rate. The Cray User Group will work with the hotel to extend availability beyond this date, but cannot guarantee that rooms will be available.
To avoid hand-carrying exhibit and promotional materials, most sponsors ship these items in advance to the Conference site. CUG 2012 will provide a secure location to store your materials, and will deliver them to the Conference venue (the Maritim) on Saturday, 28 April, 2012. Sponsors can pick up their materials during normal on-site office hours at any time on or after this date. Items that are to be placed in to the Conference Attendee Gift Bag should be clearly marked, and we will insert those items for you. Items for the Conference Attendee bag should arrive before 20 April, 2012 to ensure that they are placed in the bags. Please allow for 200 pieces (minimum) for bag items.
Your other material, which may include brochures, exhibit material, or other marketing or promotional items should be packed separately so that we can "stuff" bags in advance. Sponsors are responsible for adhering to German Import and Export Regulations, and should allow plenty of time for shipped materials to clear customs and arrive in Stuttgart, GE. CUG cannot be responsible for shipping materials back, so please make sure that all the requisite packing materials and shipping labels/forms are available to the on-site company representative so that they can arrange for the safe return of those items.
The secure address for shipping these items is:
