Since this is the first-ever WordCamp for Publishers, we’ve been getting a few questions! Here’s a handy FAQ to help answer them.
How many people will be attending?
For the first-ever WordCamp for Publishers, we’re keeping it small, at 230 attendees.
When will tickets go on sale? How much will they cost?
We plan on having tickets become available in May. If you’re interested, definitely sign up for updates. We expect tickets will go quickly. Tickets will be $40 per attendee. We also have a few micro-sponsorships available for $250 if you would like to protest the low cost of admission.
What will the schedule look like?
We are planning two days of hands-on workshops and talks (Thursday and Friday), along with a contributor day on Saturday to work on open-source projects related to WordPress and publishing. Anyone who actively manages a publication with WordPress will benefit from attending this event, including engineering, product, and editorial teams. Our speakers and attendees will come from national, international, and local media organizations along with smaller publications.
Because we expect most attendees to be coming from out of town, we will also be planning some Denver activities on Saturday after contributor day. It’s a great opportunity to see the city and get to know other attendees!
Will there be a conference hotel?
Yes. We have reserved a hotel block across the street from the venue. More on that soon.
Will scholarships be available?
Yes. We are working on getting travel scholarships for folks who otherwise may not be able to attend the event. Please stay tuned for updates on the application process.
I have a session idea/would like to be a speaker. How can I pitch my idea?
Fantastic! If you have an idea for a workshop or talk you’d love to see, or have something you’d like to present, please contact us. Our official call for proposals/speakers will open soon and close in early May so speakers will have plenty of time to prepare and book their travel.
How can I sponsor?
We have limited availability for sponsorships, so if you’re interested please contact us soon here.
Will there be Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) services available?
Yes, we will have CART services at this event.
