Dates have been announced for the third annual PressNomics conference. Organized by Joshua and Sally Strebel of Pagely, PressNomics is a conference similar to a WordCamp but focuses exclusively on the business of WordPress and the economy surrounding it.
The conference will take place January 22nd – 24th, 2015 in Tempe, AZ. The venue is the same as last year, the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel. There is a discounted rate of $194 per night available on a first come, first serve basis. PressNomics sells out fast but while you can book your hotel room now, tickets don’t go on sale until August 6th at 10AM Pacific.
PressNomics is a three-day event to relax, collaborate, and discuss the economics surrounding WordPress. Notable speakers in the past include Mark Jaquith, Cory Miller, and Mikkel Svane. Chris Lema and Matt Mederios both have great reviews of the event when they attended in 2013. It’s quickly become one of the premiere events outside of WordCamps.
PressNomics is something I’ve been wanting to attend since its creation. I was never able to attend due to finances and timing. However, I’m happy to say that I’ll be in attendance for version 3 of the event and will be covering it for the Tavern.
I’m really looking forward to surrounding myself with the movers and shakers of the WordPress business world. I want to know what everyone is thinking and get a feel for what direction WordPress is heading. Let me know in the comments if you plan on going to PressNomics 3. I’d love to meet and talk to you.
