This page focuses on the different types of Virtual Events run by the Marketing Programs team.
Virtual events that fall within the scope of an integrated campaign will be supported by the MPM DRI for that integrated campaign. Virtual events that fall outside the scope of an integrated campaign will be supported by @aoetama.
For a list of active integrated campaigns and MPM DRIs for each campaign, please reference the Integrated Campaigns handbook page. If you have any questions please post in the #marketing_programs Slack channel.
There are 6 different types of virtual events in GitLab.
⚠ Note: Virtual Event requests should be submitted no less than 45 business days before the event date so the new request can be added into the responsible Marketing Program Manager's (MPM) workflow and to ensure we have enough leeway for promotion time.
