Tickets for the first annual WordCamp US are now on sale. Due to overwhelming popularity, tickets are being released in batches with the first batch selling out within hours. There are three types of tickets available for purchase.
- A full weekend pass for $40 that includes both session days as well as a ticket for Contributor day. Lunch each day and swag are also included.
- A live stream ticket for $20 that allows you to watch the event from any place that has an internet connection. You also receive a limited edition WordCamp US 2015 t-shirt. Shirts will be mailed out after the event concludes.
- A live stream ticket for $10 that allows you to watch the event from any place that has an internet connection. This is a great option for meetup groups hosting watch parties.
If you’re in a giving mood, there are 100 Jawn microsponsorships available for $250. This sponsorship gives you a General Admission ticket and an opportunity to provide financial support for the event. You’ll also be listed by name on the thank you section of the Sponsors page.
A group of tickets are being reserved for those volunteering or speaking at the event. Information related to the Community Summit along with an application will be released next week. Although hotel accommodations are not yet available, the team plans to publish this information within the next few days.
Based on the attendees list so far, the event is shaping up to be a great opportunity to meet some of the best of the best in the WordPress ecosystem. Expect this list to grow as more tickets become available.
If you host a WordPress meetup and are planning to have a WordCamp US watch party, please let me know in the comments. About a week before the event, I’ll publish a compiled list of watch parties so people know where to go to watch the event for free with like-minded individuals.
Eh probably not going this year. I think it was a mistake to completely abandon San Francisco, and hold the event in Philidelphia during winter between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
While I’m sure Philidelphia is an amazing city, they couldn’t have picked a worse time of year.
Will probably just watch the live stream from the comfort of home in San Francisco.
Considering I’ve sold my company, and I was excluded from the community summit last year (the final year of a WordCamp in my home city), I just don’t think it’s worth the investment anymore. There’s much better focused WordPress events now without the politics.
Have fun to everyone who does go! I hope the weathers ends up not being a factor.
