WordCamp Rhode Island is the best web conference in Southern New England. We spent a year planning an event to help you build, plan, and grow a website taught by the absolute best local experts, for only $40. Do you run a business, an online store, or a blog? You do not want to miss WordCamp RI, and here are 5 reasons why.
Join us September 22nd and 23rd, 2017!
1. The top experts from New England and around the world will be here to speak about how to run and maintain a WordPress website.
We have received the highest number of expert submissions this year. More than ever local marketing, design, developer and business experts are chomping at the bit to speak at WordCamp Rhode Island.
This year we redesigned our entire speaker track system. It’s our sixth consecutive Rhode Island WordCamp so it’s time to iterate. We have built a two track system that provides for the most novice and the most experienced. Checkout our schedule here.
2. Your ticket is only $40!
Take a look at other local web and design conferences. You’re going to spend between $800 and $1500 for a 2 day conference. It’s only $40 to come to WordCamp Rhode Island.
How are we able to do this? We have amazing global and local sponsors that take care of the cost of conference. Your $40 ticket goes towards a free t-shirt, lunch each day, and an after party where you’ll be getting free food and drinks but more importantly an opportunity to network with and meet our experts or your fellow attends.
3. Get to know everyone and get some help with your project
Networking is the best way to find new talent to hire, great agencies to help you with your project, or get answers to your questions. I have been to every WordCamp RI and there hasn’t been a year where I didn’t hear a story about how someone got the help they needed to finish a project, or got hired by an agency.
It happens every year!
Before you go, let's exchange emails so we can stay in touch. Mine is [email protected], what's yours?
4. Onsite Expert Support and Help
There is no other web conference that helps attendees as directly as WordCamps do. WordCamp RI is going to have a help desk staffed during the entire two day conference by our speakers and experts.
Bring your questions about building a site, marketing to new users, growing a community or how to get started working in the industry. We have the answers.
We have an absolutely special community here in Rhode Island. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. We are all so eager to help you because we at one point were in your shoes looking for help. We live to pass on our knowledge and experience and to work together. Come find out what it’s like to be a part of a local WordPress community.
I can’t wait to see you at WordCamp RI 2017. Buy your tickets today before they run out!
