Tickets for WordCamp US 2019 went on sale this week. The event will be held November 1–3, 2019, in St. Louis, MO, at America’s Center Convention Complex.
For just $50, attendees will have access to everything throughout the three-day event, including more than 40 speaker presentations, workshops, “birds of a feather” meetups, and Contributor Day. The price also includes lunches, morning and afternoon snacks, admission to the WordFest party on Friday night, and a commemorative tee shirt with a surprise gift.
This year, parents bringing children children under 9 years old have a separate ticket option where they can indicate whether or not they are interested in on-site child care during the conference. There is no additional cost for selecting the “Parent with Kids” ticket option. Organizers are currently considering various options for childcare.
WordCamp is about diversity, this is not a catch phrase, it is not just a moment. It is about real people, doing real things, in the real world across gender, generation and culture. WordCamp embraces the world. #WordCamp #WordPress @WordCamp #WCUS pic.twitter.com/GdcCDNJYed

WordCamp US organizers have secured a block of hotel rooms at The Marriott St. Louis Grand with a special rate for conference attendees ($149/night). It is located directly across from the official venue. They anticipate the hotel block will sell out quickly. Attendees can follow the link from the WCUS website to reserve a room.
Attendee Services is now open, and this includes assistance with visa applications. Any prospective attendee who requires a visa may request a letter from WCUS organizers for the application. Requests must be made before September 1, 2019, in order to be processed in a timely way.
