Pressnomics has announced that the 4th iteration of the event will take place on March 3-4, 2016 at Tempe Mission Palms Hotel, Phoenix, AZ. Started in 2012 by Joshua Strebel of Pagely, Pressnomics is a conference dedicated to the business aspects of WordPress, whether it is software as a service, commercial themes and plugins, or development agencies.
When the event concluded last year, there was talk of it being moved to Europe for 2016. Despite the event taking place in the US in 2016, I asked Strebel if plans to host Pressnomics in Europe or even a branch of the conference are still on the table?
We are conversing with folks in Europe to try to make something happen in 2016, in addition to, Pressnomics 4 in Phoenix. Rather than ice everything until all details are final, we decided to swing and see if we can make both happen.
Tickets go on sale September 1st, 2015 at 10AM PST. Despite feedback from attendees that ticket prices should increase, event co-organizer Sally Strebel, says prices will remain roughly the same as last year.
I’ve been told by numerous people that we should increase the cost of tickets for this event and that they go to other conferences that cost more and return less value.
Thank you for looking out for us and I truly value your opinion, however we have decided to keep costs essentially the same as last year because it’s not about the money. It’s about giving back. We look forward to growing our businesses together.
Companies immediately applied to be sponsors within minutes of receiving sponsorship information. Those companies include, GoDaddy, Envato, Sucuri, iThemes, Easy Digital Downloads, and more.
I had the privilege to attend Pressnomics 3 and it was by far one of the most unique WordPress conferences I’ve attended. Compared to WordCamps, the atmosphere is much different and you can tell speakers are more open and relaxed since sessions are not recorded.
March is a great time of year to host a conference in Phoenix. If Pressnomics 3 is anything to go by, Pressnomics 4 will be amazing. If you have the opportunity to attend Pressnomics 4, I highly suggest doing so as it’s a memorable experience.
