Greetings WPCampus attendee!
We can’t wait to learn more about you, your institution, and how you use WordPress. This page is your one-stop shop for attendee information, so be sure to check back often.
What you need to know
Here’s an outline of everything on the page to help keep you informed before and during the event.
Per our schedule, we have three types of sessions: workshops, general lectures/panels, and lightning talks. We provide lunch, snacks, and enough breaks, so you have time to use the restroom, stretch your legs, talk to other attendees, and chat with our amazing sponsors.
At night, we have social events to allow you to network and relax with other attendees.
Not sure what to expect at the event? Check out the schedule.

Get on the Wifi network
The venue will provide Wifi info closer to the event. Be sure to bring your laptop or tablet!
What’s the fun of attending so many awesome sessions if you can’t hang out with the other attendees and talk about and expand on what you learned? We look forward to getting to know you, so we hope you’ll be able to join us for a few social and networking events.
We’ll post more information closer to the event, but we usually plan an event for each night.
- Wednesday/Thursday night: We usually hang out for a few hours and provide drinks and light hor d’oeuvres.
- Friday night: At WPCampus, karaoke is the name of the game for our main social event.
- Singing is not required and there’s no pressure whatsoever.
We’ll provide lunch on Thursday and Friday with coffee and snacks throughout the day. Light hor d’oeuvres will be served at all social events.
If you attend a workshop on Wednesday, we will provide a snack break.
