Support WPESSEX

The WordPress Essex Meetup is run by a team of volunteers and funded by some awesome sponsors.

We not only offer the opportunity to sponsor the #WPESSEX events for some great coverage and bucket loads of good karma, but we now offer the option to become a Supporter.

WordPress Essex Supporters are companies and individuals that offer time to help make the events what they are.  There are many ways in which you can support here are just a few examples:

  • Photographer - Get the perfect shot and cover the event with your camera.
  • Live Stream - Whip out your phone, tablet or video camera and sign into the WordPress Essex Facebook Group to start streaming.
  • Blog Coverage - Write a post about the latest event, giving links to tools talked about, or summary of opinions.
  • Videographer - Set your camera to record and we'll upload it to the #WPESSEX YouTube channel.
  • Event Organising - Got an idea for an event?  Great let's do it.  As we are a team of volunteers, all it takes is passion, time and an idea.

These are just some of the ways you can get involved.  By submitting this form you agree to the following: that all content generated as a supporter is passed onto the WordPress Essex team, you grant permission for the content to be used without restriction and all content produced will adhere to the WordPress Essex Code of Conduct.  In return you'll see your company logo or name featured on our slides throughout the live events you support.

In order for us to be able to feature your company on the #WPESSEX slides we need some details prior to the event.  Please fill in the form below, no later than 48 hours prior to the event you plan to support.

Once we have these details and we have confirmed your support, we're good to go.  On the night your company or name will be thanked and logo displayed.

If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact us.

Sponsor WPESSEX

We've been looking for ways to help support the WordPress community, so we have volunteered our time to help build on an already very successful WordPress Essex meetup. Now with over 2,200 members and a regular monthly attendance of 80 developers, designers, freelancers, and WordPress users the events always have a great buzz about them. The event is well-established, with over 70 events since Aug. 2008.

With attendee numbers rising and an increased demand for great content, costs associated with venues, catering, photography/videography and video transcriptions, are also increasing. I'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to sponsor the WordPress Essex meetup.

To support the event one simple package is offered with some additional add-ons if you would like to increase your company's presence both at the event and through our online marketing. The add-ons are also available as standalone micro-sponsorships for smaller companies or individuals.
