What's Different this time?

Photo Booth

This time around attendees can jump in our virtual photo booth and take a snap of themselves at WordFest Live.To add to the fun, attendees can share their WordFest Live experience on social media by showing off their photo booth snaps.

Games Tent

Here’s a chance to grab a freebie from our Global sponsors. Attendees can visit the Games Tent to try their hand at any of the games there. You never know what you might just come away with - a year of free web hosting, access to premium communities or maybe some cool swag - so make plans to swing by throughout the event!  

Community Interviews

Meet the community in a whole new way! Along with the fun and games, we’ve added interviews with different members of the WordPress community. Some have been selected by our sponsors, others by our organizers, and WordPress podcasters and other dynamic community members will be doing the recorded interviews. We can’t wait to hear all these great conversations.

Live Human Captioning

We continue to look for ways to make WordFest Live as accessible -- and as enjoyable -- as we possibly can. To do this, we’ve added in Live Human Captioning. But this does come at a cost and we need help from the community to fund the Live Human Captioning across the whole event. Live Captions benefits all attendees, not just those who are deaf or hard of hearing. If you’re wondering how this benefits your business on a practical level, read through 3 Business Benefits of Sponsoring Live Human Captioning.
