Tell Me More about WordPress
More than 33% of the websites you visit on a daily basis are built with the WordPress open source software, a platform the usage of which is rising constantly, especially in Greece.
What is a WordCamp?
WordCamps hold discussions on various topics: Startups, e-Commerce and Βlogging are just some of the topics covered at conferences like the one getting prepared at the moment.
Globally, WordCamps are supported by the WordPress Foundation—the official nonprofit organisation the purpose of which is the preservation of the openness of WordPress—and this conference is approved and recognised by the Foundation.
Who will find it interesting
Come on, now… Who wouldn’t?
A WordCamp is for anyone that works with WordPress, at any level of experience and knowledge, but not only.
The conference is addressed to any internet user interested in getting informed on the news around WordPress, including but not limited to Web Developers, Web Designers, Βloggers, Journalists, Content Editors, Web Editors, Social Media Managers and many more fields of expertise or professionals.
Who organises the conference
WordCamp Thessaloniki 2019 is organised by volunteers, members of the WordPress Greek Community. In particular, 15 members of the community (who you can see in more detail here), have shared the responsibilities and work to give life to the conference for the fourth year in a row, after three successful WordCamps in Athens in the years 2016, 2017, 2019 and WordCamp Thessaloniki 2018.
Tickets for WordCamp Thessaloniki
The ticket to attend the conference for both days, including meals and coffee breaks, has a small price and you can purchase it here.
Who pays the bills
As mentioned earlier, the WordPress Foundation is the valuable partner and supporter of the local organizing team’s efforts. While a big part of WordCamp Thessaloniki 2019 is financed by Foundation’s global sponsors and supporters, the WordPress Greek Community also has the option to seek out local sponsorships, monetary or providing a service, by companies active in Greece.
For that purpose, there are 5 sponsor packages available to anyone interested to pick one up and support the conference. Of course, these packages include a varying set of benefits. You may find further information following this link.
