Litmus Live Patron Program

Litmus Live (formerly known as The Email Design Conference) brings email marketers and email designers together to celebrate their craft and give the community a platform to learn, share, and grow. With 99.5% of attendees saying they’d recommend Litmus Live to a friend, we’ve set a high bar.

With more than a thousand attendees coming together in three locations—Boston, London, and San Francisco—Litmus Live is an opportunity to create something meaningful, engaging, and fun for the email community—rewarding the individuals that make email better.

But becoming a patron isn’t a typical event sponsorship commitment. That’s because Litmus Live isn’t your typical conference, and typical event sponsorship isn’t what we’re after. We’ve created something much better.

What is patronage?

The best patrons love email and the community as much as we do. Here’s what we expect from our patrons:

1. Invite your community


There’s no set fee to be involved at Litmus Live. Instead, we ask that you give away at least two conference passes, helping people that couldn’t otherwise attend.

2. Invite your team


Of course, we want you there, too! We’ll make sure your team has access to purchase tickets before they sell out. We kindly ask that you match your team attendance passes with the same number of community passes.

3.Special project


Whether it’s an installation piece, a new experience, an amazing giveaway, or something else entirely—we’ll work together to make something the community remembers.

Patronage is a great brand and community building opportunity. Patronage is not a lead generation, self-promotion, or direct sales opportunity.

Become a patron

We realize this is a very different approach supporting an event. That’s the point. Together, we can create something meaningful, engaging, and fun for the email community—rewarding the very individuals that make email better.
