The TechCrunch International City events are 1-2 day events that TechCrunch does in conjunction with partners. The partners follow a careful set of guidelines to develop the speaker agenda, a startup pitch competition, a startup exhibit area, and in some cases a hackathon. A TechCrunch editor presides over the event. In 2013 we have International City Events scheduled in Rome (September 26-27), Tokyo (November 11-12), Bangalore (November 14-15), Shanghai (November 19-20) and Moscow (December 8-9).\r\n\r\nThe TechCrunch Italy event partner is Populis, and the partner event site is here.\r\n\r\nIf you are interested in sponsoring this event or more than one International City Event, please contact TechCrunch at sponsors@TechCrunch.com. Potential sponsors may also discuss sponsorships directly with Populis.
