We doing something special this year!

We wanted to thank the people that come to WordCamp Miami year after year – ESPECIALLY those that buy a ticket before speakers and many details are announced.

We are opening batches of early bird tickets to the public.

Why You Want To Get a Ticket Now:

Reason #1: The earlier you buy a ticket, the more chances you have of winning a prize or gift from us (and our sponsors) during the event. This is particularly true during our closing remarks on May 31st, which we plan on giving out some great gifts thanks to our wonderful sponsors. As far as the math goes, if you are in the first of four groups then you are entered to automatically win for 100% of the prizes. If you’re in the second group, you are entered for 75%. Third: 50%. Fourth: 25%. You see how this goes?

Reason #2: We always sell out. Seriously. Always. Last year we had 770+ attendees and still a waiting list of 100+

BTW even if you are selected as a speaker or qualify for a free ticket, we will reimburse you.

Call For Speakers!

With our dates officially announced (May 29-31, 2015), we are opening up our call for speakers.

All the information you need to know – including the link to submit a speaker proposal – is located here.

But before you rush to submit, keep reading…

We are making some changes to some tracks and workshops, and introducing new formats for sessions. Please read the submissions page carefully. Also read this insight into what changes we are making in our session tracks this year.

Also when submitting proposals: please assume at this time you will have 30 minutes for your session, plus some brief time to answer questions. Also assume your talk will be recorded, so you will have to sign a media release before giving your presentation.

Returning Speakers? Great. New Speakers? Even better.

We welcome back anyone who has attended and spoken at WordCamp Miami in the past – repeat speakers welcome! On the other hand, we are looking especially for those who might not have spoken at WordCamp Miami before – or perhaps those wanting to make WordCamp Miami their first speaking conference!

No Time To Waste – Submit Your Application

We always like to make this call as soon as possible for a few reasons. Main reason is speakers (especially out of town ones) need time to schedule and book travel. Speakers with experience sometimes wish to submit speaker submission requests to conferences as soon as possible. These make a decision (or at least are fairly sure) they will attend WordCamp Miami – either they come every year, or they live close to the area. In either case, we are opening up speaker submissions now and the current deadline for submissions will be March 20th, 2015.

It Has Begun!

We’re happy to announce that WordCamp Miami is back for it’s SIXTH YEAR. WordCamp Miami has become one of the largest WordCamps (over 770 attended last year), and we are excited to bring another HUGE and FUN WordPress event to Miami. We even got a new venue to hold it all.

Mark your calendar: May 29-31st, 2015.

The primary days of the event will be held at Florida International University main campus which is located at 11200 Southwest 8th Street, Miami, FL.

We’ll be covering more information about event details, BuddyCamp Miami, speaker submissions, etc. in the coming days. If you haven’t already, subscribe to the WordPress Miami event list for these updates (plus some exciting possibilities for some of our local early-bird ticket buyers):
