Sponsors

Many companies have helped out LRUG and it's members in some way. Here we list them and say thanks.

Some of these companies even offer us discount codes for services or events. For example, most of the publisher user group programs involve a discount code for their webstore. Generally speaking we'll give out these codes when we find out about them during one of our meetings or via the mailing list.

Meeting Sponsorship

The following companies have sponsored at least one of our meetings by hosting us in their offices. We prefer to run LRUG in-person and need venues, if you have an office that could accommodate us, why not get in touch to offer it up!
