Thank You, WordCamp Seattle Sponsors

Remember how pleasantly surprised you were when you saw the price of your WordCamp Seattle ticket? That’s not just us being generous.

Your low ticket price, the free lunch you get both days, the fancy venue where we’re holding the event, and many other benefits of this two-day WordPress love-fest were all made possible by the generous support of our sponsors.

These companies are all important members of our WordPress community, and we hope you’ll support them.

The Gold Sponsors are all exhibiting at WordCamp Seattle. Please visit their booths and let them know how much you appreciate their support.
