We’re looking for speakers and sponsors

Since announcing the dates for WordCamp Boston back in April, the popular questions have been, “When can I apply to speak?” and “Can we sponsor?”

The answer to both questions is a resounding yes. We’ve recently published information for both speaker applications and sponsorship inquries, so what are you waiting for?

Apply to speak at https://2013.boston.wordcamp.org/apply-to-speak/.

Let us know you’d like to sponsor WordCamp Boston 2013 by visiting https://2013.boston.wordcamp.org/sponsorship/.

Save the Date: October 25-27, 2013

We’re happy to announce that WordCamp will return to Boston the weekend of October 25-27, 2013. We’re happy to be revisiting our roots by moving back to the Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge after a few successful years on the other side of the Charles.
