WordCamp San Francisco, which is billing itself as the official WordCamp of the year, has opened up ticket sales for the big event. San Francisco is a three day event, so be sure to grab the ticket that matches up with the parts of the conference you’d like to attend. Just to recap, the conference is split into the following parts:
- Professional/large scale focus on Friday
- First-time user workshop on Friday
- Developer and designer focus on Saturday
- Bloggers and content creator focus on Sunday
Odds are you will be interested in either a 3 day pass for $50, or a single ticket for $25. WPCandy will, of course, be there all weekend covering the event and (hopefully) meeting many of you folks.
If you’d like to support WordCamp San Francisco beyond your ticket price, sponsorship levels have been published as well. An individual sponsorship runs $500, and regular business sponsorships run from $5,000 to $40,000 this year. According to organizer Jane Wells, these sponsorship levels are necessary to cover the tripled cost of running the event over three days.
In addition to covering the cost of the camp, any sponsors that contribute $10,000 or more will be invited to participate in a mini trade show, which will be new to the event.
Similar to other camps this year, WordCamp San Francisco will not be handing out swag bags to attendees. Wells explains:
No swag bags. People already have bags, they don’t need another, and most people just throw away your lovingly crafted swag. It’s sad, but true. No more throwaways!
According to a tweet, chosen speakers for San Francisco will be notified this week.
