WPTavern: WordCamp Ann Arbor to Host Second WordCamp WarmUp
WordCamp Ann Arbor, MI, is set to take place October 13-14 and for the second year in a row, organizers will host a secondary event called WordCamp WarmUp. WordCamp WarmUp provides an environment for attendees to break the ice and meet new people before the main event.
Janelle Reichman is co-organizing WordCamp WarmUp. â€śIâ€™ve been running my own WordPress business for about eight years,â€ťÂ Reichman said. â€śHowever, I attended myÂ first WordCamp just last fall. Iâ€™ll never forget it â€“ I was pretty much terrified.
â€śBut then, I got an invitation to a WordCamp WarmUp. I couldnâ€™t believe my luck. I couldnâ€™t believe there was an event made exactly for people like me, who were shaking in their boots at the prospect of showing up at a conference and not knowing anybody.
â€śI attended the WarmUp, made friends, saw them all the next day at WordCamp, and ended up having an amazing and unforgettable timeâ€ť
Unlike last yearâ€™s WarmUp, details for this years event will only be announced to WordCamp Ann Arbor ticket holders. The event is maxed out to fifty people and is available on a first come, first serve basis. Appetizers and beverages will be provided.
Rebecca Gill, founder of Web-Savvy-Marketing, organized the event last year and considered it a success. â€śNot only did most WarmUp guests arrive right on time, we had a full room of WarmUp attendees and even had a few unexpected friends show up,â€ť Gill said.
Ticket holders can expect to see an email with event details within the next few weeks.
