PressNomics, an annual conference devoted to the economics of WordPress has announced that the fifth iteration of the event will take place April 6-8, 2017 at Tempe Mission Palms Hotel, in Phoenix, AZ. The event is organized by Joshua Strebel of Pagely, a managed WordPress hosting company that recently celebrated its seventh birthday.
A hallmark of the event is its contributions to charity. Since PressNomics one, the event has raised more than $40K for various charities including, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, CureSearch.org, BensBells, and Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
In addition to the conference, there will be a social Saturday where attendees can participate in a golf tournament or go on an excursion to explore the Art’s and Culture of the area. The social activities will be available as a separate purchase of $50 when buying your tickets. To take full advantage of the event, organizers suggest that attendees fly in on Wednesday, April 5th and leave on Sunday, April 9th.
Tickets have yet to go on sale and the speaker lineup is in the process of being finalized. If you want to be one of the first to know when tickets go on sale, you’re encouraged to sign up to the event’s email list.
