2013 Top WordPress Conferences
Unlike other conferences that leave attendees with a general portfolio of information, WordPress conferences provide attendees with a vast array of new material ranging from content structuring and marketing, to SEO optimization and networking details. Successful entrepreneurs and self-made millionaires attend these conferences because they know that the information they can obtain is seemingly priceless. Below you will find three of the best annual WordPress (or WordPress oriented) Conferences to attend.
WordCamp San Francisco is made available both live and virtual to ensure maximum exposure. The last WordCamp San Francisco took place in July of 2013 and had a lineup consisting of Amy Hendrix, Mark Jaquith, John James Jacoby, Brad Williams, Jake Goldman, and more. Live Tweets were distributed by @WordCampSF (follow the account now to stay updated before next years conference). Last year, the live stream tickets cost a total of $10, and you definitely get your money’s worth. You can view videos of last years speakers on the WordCamp San Francisco official website.
Another great WordPress oriented conference is PressNomics, which will be held between October 17th through the 19th of this year (2013) in Phoenix, Arizona at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel. Speakers include Frederick Townes, founder of W3 EDGE, Noel Tock, creator of ClickBank Powered, Maria Ogneva, business strategist, and thirteen other speakers. General admission tickets cost $300 and can be bought here. Call (800) 547-8705 for directions.
WordCamp Providence was recently held from August 16th through the 17th in Providence, Rhode Island. Speakers included Aaron Ware, President of LinchPin, K. Adam White, engineer at Bocoup, Brad Parbs, engineer and developer, Dr. Renee Hobbs, author, and many more. The event was held at the University of Rhode Island’s Feinstein Providence Campus. Topics that were discussed were real-time site impersonation, advanced permalink structures, publishing workflows, how 17,170,220 websites were built in six months, and more. Next years event is already being planned, so be on the lookout for dates!
This specific WordCamp conference is currently on its fourth year running. The event will be held in Boston between October 25th through the 27th at the Microsoft NERD Center. Speakers have yet to be announced, and applications are being processed. In the past, this event has drawn in more than 500 attendees, which is impressive because of how new the event is.
WordCamp London is going to take place November 23rd and 24th. Tickets are currently on sale for only £25. Again, speakers have yet to be announced, as applications are still being accepted; however, attendees can expect a fantastic lineup, access to WordPress workshops, a T-shirt, provided lunches, and an after party. Sponsors include WordPress developer, Human Made, platform host, WP Engine, WebZilla, Woo Themes, and more.
Whether you’re a blogger, strategist, entrepreneur, author, or are just simply interested in development, then any of these conferences are for you. As well as that, they are all designed to accommodate the beginner and the professional alike.
