Woohoo! The big day is here. Ticket sales are now live.
Tickets for WordCamp are $40 and includes a t-shirt and lunch both days (Saturday, July 25 and Sunday, July 26). Pretty sweet deal, huh?
Friday’s PreCamp is a hands-on workshop aimed at helping beginners get a new WordPress site up and running, and is packaged along with WordCamp for $60.
Check out our Tracks to see what you’ll be learning at WordCamp! We’ll be posting a detailed schedule with all the sessions and speakers in the coming week.
We sold out quickly last year, so why take a chance at being left out? Get your ticket today and spread the word.
PreCamp is a hands-on Beginner’s Day for those new to WordPress. Unlike WordCamp (Sat & Sun), which focuses on presentations by various speakers, PreCamp (Fri) is a do-it-yourself day.
Are you new to WordPress (or know someone who is) and want some hands-on support in setting up your website? PreCamp is designed to take you from a blank slate to a fully functioning website before you walk out the door. We provide almost everything* you need to get started – including three months of hosting for your site thanks to the generous sponsorship of SiteGround.
If you’re a beginner who is wondering if this is the right place for you – the answer is YES!
Want to be one of the lucky 50 attendees?
Make sure you’ve signed up for Email updates (subscribe on right-hand sidebar) and we’ll notify you when tickets go on sale.
We look forward to meeting you at PreCamp! *you will need to bring a laptop with wireless internet and administrative access, any images and content you will want on your website, and a willingness to learn through hands-on experience (a great sense of humor and willingness to laugh while you learn is appreciated – but not required.)
Tickets are going on sale later this week. We’ll send an email a few hours before tickets become available for purchase, so make sure you’re signed up!
In the mean time, check out our breakdown of the various Tracks offered this year to get an idea of the topics covered.
Our speaker submission form is officially closed and the WordCamp committee is combing through each and every proposal. We’re narrowing down the list (with so many excellent presenters and topics, this is no easy task!).
We’ll be reaching out to speakers who make the list by early next week.
After we confirm all speakers, we’ll start announcing the line up. So, stay tuned to this site and to our social channels for updates and for when tickets go on sale (which will be very, very soon)!
Stay up to date:
Volunteers are the backbone of any great WordCamp. We are looking for people who are enthusiastic, organized, energetic, and who love WordPress. You don’t have to be a WordPress expert, just great with people and a smile.
As a volunteer, you’ll be helping to make our event run as smoothly as possible, ensuring a fun time is had by all. Plus, it’s a great way to get more involved in the WordPress community, make connections and meet some really cool people as geeky as you are.
If you’re interested, please click the link below to head on over to our volunteer page loaded with info and a handy form for you to fill out.
There is no guarantee we can give you a certain volunteer task or duty; however, we’ll do our best to match you with the task or duty that best fits your skills, schedule and interests. Volunteer roles will be defined as the event draws closer. Please provide as much information as possible.
We look forward to having you as a part of the volunteer team!

WordCamp Asheville is now accepting applications for speakers for this summer’s conference! It’s a great opportunity to help the local Asheville WordPress community by sharing your knowledge and love of WordPress.
This year’s theme is CONNECTION! It’s not required to have the theme as part of your presentation, but we’d love to challenge you to include it.
We’re looking for speakers willing to engage their audience about a topic related to WordPress. It’s up to you to decide what to share, but we’re looking for talks that will fall within our four tracks:
- Talks will be allotted 45 minutes, plus time for Q&A. You can adjust the talk time if you incorporate Q&A during the presentation.
- Speakers will be offered free admission to WordCamp Asheville 2015 and get to attend a speaker dinner, but since we’re a nonprofit we can not reimburse travel, lodging, or other expenses.
- As a disclaimer, all sessions will be video taped. You will need to sign and return the A/V form prior to speaking.
- We encourage multiple submissions from the same speaker. If you have more than one idea, go ahead and submit multiple topics and we’ll get back to you with which one we think will fit best with the final schedule. You’ll need to submit a form for each presentation idea. (If you submit multiple topics, but have a preferred one, just make a note for us when you submit the form.)
- You will be contacted as soon as the committee has made a decision about the presentations.
[Submissions are now Closed]
Applications are being accepted May 16 – May 31 so don’t delay, get your submission in today!
Be a good friend, and send this to someone you think might make a great WordCamp speaker.
Sponsor Signup Form
WordCamps are casual, volunteer-run events. Sponsor support for WordCamp enables attendees to experience the event for a low cost; just $20 per day! A low cost ensures accessibility to freelancers, small businesses and anyone who wants to attend.
Being a sponsor gives you an unique opportunity to invest in the Asheville WordPress community.

Letting members of our community know you support them will earn you their goodwill.
We have all benefited from using WordPress; now is the perfect time to give something back.
