The schedule isn’t finalized but we want to make sure you know what to expect, especially for those who will be joining us for the first time in Portland. For those who can’t make the trip, we expect to continue our tradition of streaming the event for free.
The planning committee has finalized their selection process and will be in touch soon.
Thank you to all who submitted a proposal! Please let us know if you do not receive an email confirmation.
What to expect
This three-day conference event will be filled with sessions, networking, and social events, covering a variety of topics, all focused on the growth of higher education, WordPress, and its people.
Thursday, July 25
The main conference takes place July 26-27 but we kick things off with workshops! Giving workshops their own day allow us to dive deeper and spend more time on important topics. We charge a little extra for workshops: $25.
We’ll probably start right after lunch, around 1 p.m., and go until 5 p.m. We’ll provide snacks. After we break for the day, don’t forget to join us for the first social event, our welcome gathering, Thursday night. All are welcome to attend.
Friday, July 26
Friday will be the first full day of the conference.
We usually get started around 8 a.m. with registration, a light breakfast, and opening remarks. Each session is 45 minutes with 15 minutes in-between, so you have time to use the restroom, stretch your legs, talk to other attendees, and chat with our amazing sponsors.
We will provide lunch and usually close the first day between 5 and 6 p.m.
After sessions, meet up with some new friends for dinner before joining us for another social event and fun evening together, networking and making new friends in the community.
Saturday, July 27
Saturday is another full day and the last day of the conference.
We usually get started around 8 a.m. with a light breakfast before sessions. Again, each session is 45 minutes with 15 minutes in-between, so you have time to use the restroom, stretch your legs, talk to other attendees, and chat with our amazing sponsors.
We will provide lunch and usually end the day between 5 and 6 p.m. with closing remarks. Be sure to stick around for closing remarks for the chance to win some awesome door prizes.
After sessions, meet up with some new friends for dinner before joining us for the after-party. Karaoke is the name of the game at the WPCampus after-party so be sure to warmup those vocal chords. If singing isn’t your forte, no worries. It’s not required and there’s no pressure whatsoever.
