What Is WordPress and WordCamp?

WordPress is open-source software which provides a powerful, flexible, scalable and easy to learn website tool that anyone can access at no cost. WordCamps celebrate this open tool by teaching people how to use WordPress, how to bend it to their will, and even how to leverage it as a business-and to do it all for about the price of lunch

WordCamp Columbus is organized and run by unpaid volunteers, underwritten by sponsors, and profit-free. Any remaining funds from sponsorships are donated to the local non-profits. WordCamp Columbus was launched in 2009 and organized by Alvin Borromeo and Jason Blanton. In 2010, WordCamp Columbus merged with PodCamp Ohio. In 2011, WordCamp Columbus was again its own event, organized by Angie Meeker and hosted over 150 attendees, with over 50 more on a waiting list to get in!

WordCamp Columbus allows the community to experience a conference for a low cost ($40!) that would cost hundreds elsewhere. This gives non-profits, freelancer,s and small businesses the chance to remain competitive and aware of the latest technology.

Sponsorship gives your business access to a highly targeted demographic. Our attendees average:

  • 25-45 yrs old
  • 45-125k/annum HHI
  • Web & tech savvy professionals
  • An astounding 90% of attendees are active bloggers
  • Most are highly active on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Yelp, and FourSquare with large circles of influence

WordCamp Columbus 2012 will host between 100-125 attendees on Saturday, July 14-15, 2012. Activities will be followed by WordPress fans all over the world via Twitter and the #wccbus hashtag. Our sessions will also be recorded and uploaded to WordPress.tv. We truly want our sponsors to see ROI on their investment in WordCamp. We will personally work with sponsors to ensure they have a creative opportunity to organically imprint their brand on attendees. There is no better opportunity to reach an intelligent, interesting, and evangelistic local crowd.

If you are interested in sponsorship, please contact Angie Meeker at 614.353.0633, columbus@wordcamp.org, or register on our website.
