Bangkok, Thailand, January 2020: In less than a month, around 1,400 WordPress enthusiasts from all over the world will meet at WordCamp Asia 2020. The first flagship WordCamp for Asia is scheduled to be held on February 21-23 at TRUE ICON HALL @ ICONSIAM, Bangkok, Thailand.

The contributor day free ticket registration was first released on January 9, 2020. It was also sold out in just a little under 15 minutes! To cope with the demand, an additional batch of tickets for Contributor Day was released on January 23, 2020.

WordCamp Asia 2020 Schedule

The schedule for WordCamp Asia was released on January 13. While typically WordCamps put Contributor Day on the last day, WordCamp Asia will instead start off with Contributor Day on February 21, 2020, followed by two days of conference on February 22 and 23, 2020 and then ends with an After Party at LHONG 1919.

There are 40 talks, 11 lightning talks, a panel discussion, and the most awaited session, a keynote talk from Matt Mullenweg, the co-founder of WordPress.

Aside from the talks, attendees can also experience WordCamp Asia through other activities that the organisers have prepared, such as:

KidsCamp is an activity aimed for children where they will learn how to use WordPress to create websites and other cool things.

The organisers are hoping that this activity can help to nurture the next generation of WordPress contributors. Attendees can visit the Community Bazaar and sponsor booths, or engage in themed discussions with other attendees in Tribe Meetups.

“I can’t wait to see Asian WordPress community makes new connections and transforms their ideas at WordCamp Asia!” – Global Lead Organiser, Naoko Takano.

#WCASIA Sponsors

WordCamp Asia has also received tremendous support from the generous sponsors as the sponsorship target is achieved. However, since the focus for WordCamp Asia was never just about hitting a monetary target – but to ensure that as many WordPress related businesses could have a physical presence and interact with the Asian crowd, the sponsorship application will stay open until 31 January 2020.

Wapuu fans would be delighted to know that they can purchase a limited-edition WordCamp Asia plush Wapuu toy at the event! Various swags can also be pre-ordered online with a 10% discount and free shipping until 31 Jan 2020, to be picked up on the event.

WordCamp Asia has created an avenue for the members of the WordPress community in Asia to meet with WordPress contributors from other parts of the world. It also provides a good opportunity for a lot of people who have never visited Asia before to come and experience Asia for the first time.

It is an exciting moment for everyone, including the organisers!

“We are really excited to be the host city of the first flagship WordCamp in Asia! Looking forward to greeting you all in Bangkok next month!” – WordCamp Local Lead Organiser, Nok Pantip T.
