Become our partner

Discover our partnership proposal, what are our values and the advantages that your community can take advantage of by becoming our partner.

Here’s what you’ll find on this page:

Who is this proposal dedicated to?

Communities that:

  • share our values;
  • share an interest in the topics of our events and want to get in touch with other people and communities in the sector.

Or conferences, people and realities that in addition to the above:

  • can offer discounts on products or services that directly affect our community (publishing houses, training, specific tools…);
  • create and distribute contents and which therefore can allow our events to be made known to a wide audience of developers (blog / newsletter, content creator, etc …).

If you are a company that wants to make brand awareness, recruiting and positioning discover our sponsorship proposal.

Who we are and which are our objectives

GrUSP is an association founded in 2003, initially dedicated to the PHP world, and later became the reference point in Italy for all good practices in the world of web development. We organize events, conferences and informal meetings involving Italian and international professionals.

We want to encourage the meeting between developers by encouraging the participation of communities in our events in order to make them unique moments of sharing, training, growth and networking. We too are first of all a community with more than 1900 members.

Confrontation, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of our initiatives and activities.

Diversity and Inclusion

We’re committed to creating events that are as diverse and inclusive as possible and we truly believe that communities like yours have a powerful impact in improving diversity and inclusion in tech. 

We take great care and put a lot of effort into creating an environment where everyone can feel comfortable.

Each conference has a code of conduct and we have a scholarships program for those belonging to underrepresented groups in the tech world and for those who cannot afford the costs of the conference. We have set up a fund dedicated to diversity and inclusion and shared all the attention we make to make our events accessible.

Our format

Our events have two different types of different formats:


  • paid event
  • one or more day
  • shybrid (in person + online)

  • free event
  • half a day
  • online
