WPTavern: Inuagural CabinPress Takes Place November 3-5, at Lake Louisa State Park in Clermont, FL

WPTavern: Inuagural CabinPress Takes Place November 3-5, at Lake Louisa State Park in Clermont, FL

If spending time in the woods in Oklahoma to disconnect from technology is not your thing, perhaps staying at a cabin in Florida is. CabinPress, organized by David Laietta, takes place November 3-5, at Lake Louisa State Park in Clermont, FL.

The location is about an hour’s drive from Orlando, FL and is 4,500 acres large with lakes, hills, and scenic areas.

Similar to CampPress, CabinPress’ goal is to disconnect people from technology to allow them to focus on building and strengthening personal relationships.

“I enjoy camping and spending some time disconnected from technology, spending time with others,” Laietta said. “I get the most out of a conference when I have the opportunity to have deeper discussions with others than general ‘we’re crushing it, work is fine’ chats.

“This is much more comfortable than camping though, so the focus can be on having fun and making connections, while still having a real bed and hot showers.”

Accommodations include fully furnished cabins with beds, air conditioning, kitchens, and bathrooms. Activities within the park include hiking, kayaking, board games, canoeing, and more. Laietta suggests packing for the event as if you’re staying at a hotel.

Early bird tickets are available until April 30th when prices will increase from $250 to $300. At the time of writing, there were 15 tickets remaining. Each ticket provides the following:

  • Accommodations for Friday and Saturday night
  • Meals and snacks from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch
  • Canoe and Kayak rentals
  • Coworking space with high-speed internet the week following the event in downtown Orlando, FL
  • Swag!

Sponsorship opportunities are available and the funds will be used to offset the cost of the event. Although CabinPress and CampPress were officially announced around the same time period, Laietta has been planning this event for some time.

“We were discussing it after WordCamp Orlando was postponed due to a hurricane last year,” he said.

“We happened to find good timing availability for one of the nice state parks. Many of them you have to book far in advance to get cabins.”

Those interested in attending are encouraged to review the event’s Code of Conduct. To learn more about Lake Louisa State Park and what it offers, visit the park’s official site.
