WordCamp Orlando Rescheduled for November 12-13

WordCamp Orlando which was originally scheduled for October 9-10 will now take place the weekend of November 12-13. The event was cancelled after the venue was ordered closed due to Hurricane Matthew.

The event is being held at the UCF Rosen Campus and features a different schedule than the October event. Saturday will have a networking brunch, keynote session, and three tracks of hour-long sessions. The Developer’s and WordPress for Beginners workshops will be held on Sunday along with a track of sessions dedicated to business and marketing.

Lisa Melegari, lead organizer for WordCamp Orlando, says the team was unable to re-negotiate a discounted rate for hotel rooms with Rosen Shingle Creek. If your reservation was cancelled due to the storm, she suggests contacting the hotel directly and try booking the room at the same rate.

Extra tickets will go on sale once sessions are decided and speakers are confirmed. Those who purchased tickets for the October event and did not request a refund are able to use the same ticket to attend in November.
