With 14 weeks to go till WordCamp Cape Town 2017 I’m starting to feel that combination of excited anticipation and nervousness that goes along with planning such an event. Today I’m happy to announce that two very important pieces of the WordCamp puzzle have slotted into place, the availability of WordCamp Tickets and the Call for Sponsors.
Those who booked tickets last year will remember that ticket sales were in US$. This was because the WordCamp organising team did not have a local bank account available in order to process the funds. This year we are happy to announce that all ticket sales are in South African Rands and are being paid into a locally managed bank account. A big thanks to PayFast for helping us with the payment gateway process.
Head on over to our Ticket page and book your WordCamp tickets. We are offering an early bird special to all tickets sold before 15 August. Simply use the coupon code earlybird, for a 20% discount on all standard tickets.
Call for Sponsors
Without the past support of our generous sponsors, WordCamp Cape Town would not be affordable to the vast majority of the local community who attend. WordCamp attendees have two full days to gain insight from our speakers, network with other WordPress users and developers, and learn more about WordPress and open source. By donating to WordCamp Cape Town, our sponsors make this event a reality.
If you or your company would like to sponsor WordCamp this year, please head on over to our Call for Sponsors page, choose your sponsorship package and fill in the Sponsorship form.
