WordCamp Ann Arbor Cancelled, Organizers Set Sights on 2019 Event

WordCamp Ann Arbor MI, is an annual Fall tradition that takes place each October. This year however, the event won’t be taking place. In an email sent out August 3rd, organizers explained why they cancelled this year’s event.

Why did we decide to cancel WordCamp Ann Arbor this year? It’s a long story. The most significant factors involve issues with our venues. Then eventually finding ourselves with too little time to put together an event meeting the standards we strive for. None of us were interested in throwing together a last minute, half-baked event. So we made the call early and turned our attention to 2019.
