Call for Speakers

We’re happy to announce that WordCamp Cincinnati 2017 is officially accepting speaker applications!

The 2nd annual WordCamp Cincinnati will be held November 11-12, 2017 on the campus of University of Cincinnati.

We are excited to bring together WordPress enthusiasts from around the community to celebrate all things WordPress. We appreciate the varied talents and perspectives that developers, content creators, designers, etc. bring to the WordPress community. Following the great success of our 2016 event, we’re looking to build a program packed with amazing presentations which reflect the talent, creativity, and enthusiasm of our local WordPress community, and we want you to be a part of it!

What We’re Looking For

WordCamp Cincinnati showcases the best of the local WordPress Community. We’re particularly interested in hearing from those who have used WordPress in interesting, innovative, and significant ways. Whether the open source software was used to deliver something technically interesting, or whether WordPress was the foundation for creating something meaningful in the community, we want to know about it. We’re also looking for speakers to talk about how they use WordPress to grow their business, develop advanced plugins, tell their stories, and much much more. Everybody has a unique WordPress story to tell, and we want to hear yours.

Looking for more inspiration? Check out presentations from last year’s event.

What is WordCamp?

WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. Attendees include aficionados, practitioners, website developers, agency owners, SEO experts, online commerce proprietors, and, hopefully, YOU!

Throughout WordCamp, attendees share experiences and insights about how they use WordPress to share ideas and execute business objectives.

What’s the Word on WordPress?

WordPress is a free, open source platform that enables quick and easy website, blog, or app development. The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine.

WordCamp Cincinnati will be held November 11-12, 2017 at the University of Cincinnati, in the Tangeman University Center.
