Update-May 27 – Our Sponsorship Goals are Now Achieved – Thank You To Our Generous Sponsors. See our Sponsor page for Updates.
WordCamp wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our local, national, and international sponsors. Thank you!
WordCamps are community-organized events put together by WordPress users. We are an educational event that relies on funding from businesses near and far who decide to participate as our sponsors. Without them, WordCamp OKC would never get off the ground. This will be our very first WordCamp and we need your help!
Reasons to sponsor:
- Your customers attend WordCamp! Most are small business owners or entrepreneurs
- They have or will need a website
- A majority of attendees develop or design websites for others
- Make new connections with speakers, sponsors and attendees
- Find your next essential employee
- Visibility in the OKC tech community and the WordPress community at large
- Our eternal gratitude!
