Sponsor WordCamp Toronto 2017 (#WCTO)

We’re bringing together 450+ WordPress developers, designers, users and business owners for another great weekend of WordPress in Toronto, Canada. Your support as a #WCTO sponsor helps cover the costs of running this non-profit event, and we make sure everyone recognises the support you provide.

Plus you earn some great karma giving back to the community and promoting WordPress; the open source software that has enriched all our lives. You also gain direct exposure to a diverse crowd of savvy users, designers, developers, consultants, and entrepreneurs – from the Toronto area and internationally.

There’s an extra bonus this year. WPToronto is moving the conversation forward around Sponsor ROI. We believe WordPress is at a tipping point. We all know WordPress has enjoyed enormous success and currently runs 27% of websites around the world. And yet, we see WordPress as poised to enjoy its largest growth ever. We want you to be part of that conversation.

But wait – there’s more… In addition to the guest posts we invite you to place on the #WCTO site, we’re building WPToronto.com into an authority site. This is where you can publish your content to drive traffic to your site, raise your authority status, and demonstrate your expertise.

We have been able to arrange a room block at Holiday Inn for your convenience. The Holiday Inn on Carlton Street is a short walk from the Ryerson venue. It’s a pleasant walk along Yonge Street with plenty of shops and restaurants. There is also a 24 hr Golden Griddle (similar to Denny’s) across the street from the hotel.

We have a lot in store for you in 2017 and beyond.
