Joomla World Conference 2014
Written by Andy Nathan
The Joomla Word Conference 2014 (JWC14) is coming to Cancun, Mexico from November 7-9th. This is an amazing opportunity to connect with others in the Joomla community to discover the newest trends in the industry.
Hurry up to show an active participation in the annual conference that helps decide the future of Joomla for the year! With so many great developers, designers, and Joomla users in attendance, this event tremendously helps your ability to grow as Joomla does.
As an added bonus, this years event is located at the beautiful, tropical Grand Oasis hotel in Cancun. With pristine white beaches and beautiful blue oceans, the event should be a great time for all.
While the sessions are not set yet for the event, many of the sponsors have already come forward to help put up the event. Currently the main sponsor for the event is SiteGround, the expert Joomla Hosting company. Additionally, Microsoft and GoDaddy have signed up as Power and Silver sponsors respectively. Without these sponsors, the price of the event would have to be increased.
As it is, an early bird ticket is only $199.
However, if you are looking at the ticket and not sure about covering the price, some users have the option of obtaining a Joomla Event Traveller Proram (JET) award. This award helps out those without the financial means to meet at JWC14. The application is designed to select those who have been the most active in the Joomla community by providing them a free ticket and discounted travel and lodging.
Keep in mind that comparable tickets at other conferences go for thousands of dollars to obtain the same information during the sessions.
Speaking of Joomla sessions, they are in need of speakers. If you are interested in speaking at the Joomla World Conference, then make sure to fill out your speaker profile form today.
