WPTavern: WordCamp for Publishers Seeks Host City for 2019

WPTavern: WordCamp for Publishers Seeks Host City for 2019

WordCamp For Publishers’ distributed organizing team is looking for a new host city in 2019. The industry-focused camp gathers together professionals who use WordPress to manage publications. This year’s successful event hosted speakers who highlighted important topics, such as ethics in journalism, the open web, AMP, Gutenberg, and communication between tech and editorial teams.

The inaugural edition of this camp was held in Denver (2017), followed by Chicago this year. A few people on social media have lobbied for cities like Los Angeles and Detroit, but the decision rests on the availability of local organizers to handle the logistics of the event. These duties include facilitating venue coordination, swag delivery, and other things that need to happen on the ground.

Based on the call for host city applications, it seems that applicants do not need a large team behind them, since there’s already an existing organizing team. Applicants need only the availability to coordinate local preparations.

Individuals or teams who are interested to host the event in 2019 can submit an application. Organizers said they have a preference for cities that are “underrepresented media markets” where attendees may not see as many of these types of events.
