Call for Speakers

Update: Speaker submissions are now closed. Thanks to everyone who submitted a talk! We’ll get back to everyone as soon as possible.

We’re thrilled to announce that WordCamp US 2017 is officially accepting speaker applications!

The 3rd annual WordCamp US will be held December 1-3, 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee. We are excited to bring together WordPress enthusiasts from around the globe to participate in this fantastic event that celebrates all things WordPress. We appreciate the varied talents and perspectives that developers, content creators, designers, etc.  bring to the WordPress community. We’re looking to build a program packed with amazing presentations which reflects this incredible diversity of the WordPress community, and we want you to be a part of it!

What We’re Looking For

WordCamp US showcases the best of WordPress and the 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 amazing, or whether WordPress was the foundation for creating something meaningful in the community, we want to know about it. We’re also looking for dynamic and versatile 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.

There’s much we can learn from others who haven’t traditionally spoken to our community. Your voice is welcome here.  If you work on other Open Source projects or web design and development in general, and think the WordPress community could benefit from your story, we want it told at WCUS.

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