Yep, that’s right. We are no longer accepting applications for speakers or sponsors. Thanks for your interest, but we had to cut it off at some point, or we’d never get this WordCamp finished! There’s been an overwhelming response, both from potential speakers (over 100 applications received!), and generous sponsors, listed on the sidebar of our site (with a few more to come).
If you still want to give back to WordCamp, you have a couple of options left:
With such a huge WordCamp, we need an army of hard-working volunteers to keep things running smoothly. From the night before, folding T-shirts and alphabetizing name tags, to Sunday night cleanup, volunteers will make sure that we make this the Best WordCamp Ever. If you want to help us out, head on over to our Volunteer page, and sign up. We are only looking for a few more people, but we especially need folks who can help with running rooms during sessions and taking video.
Individual Sponsor Ticket
We will be opening up ticket sales here in the next couple of weeks, and alongside the regular ticket, we will be offering an Individual Sponsor Ticket, which will cost twice as much. You’ll get a notation on your event badge to show how much you care, and we’ll even tweet out your name when you buy the ticket.
We’re going to get right to work on choosing speakers, so stay tuned to this site for more information on the speaker schedule, ticket sales, and, of course, the totally awesome after party!
