  • WordCamp Location In Venue: WordCamp will be upstairs — we have the entire second floor meeting space.
  • Speaker Room: Room 205, at the end of the hallway outside the ballrooms is the Private Speaker Room. No one will be allowed in the room but speakers. This is your place for quiet time to get ready for your talk or decompress after your talk.

Room Information

  • All tracks will be held in very large, dark ballrooms.
  • The walls between the ballrooms have a multi-foot wide gap in the center of the walls to help eliminate the transfer of sound between rooms.
  • There will be a large stage at the front of each ballroom for better visibility.
  • A podium will be on the stage with a microphone, as well as a wireless microphone — which you use is up to you.
  • There will be a large countdown timer on each podium for speakers that the room managers will need to set before each session.
  • There will be an audience microphone for Q&A.

Don’t forget to have fun! WordCamp is going to be AWESOME so remember to relax, mingle, and enjoy yourself!
