Pack your toothbrushes, polish your shoes, get your nails done and get ready to party! WCUS 2019 is here and we are super excited about it!
This year WordCamp US is held in St. Louis, Missouri. It starts this Friday, November 1st, and will go on for three days. There will be over 50 speakers, a dozen workshops and a great party at the local museum (yes, you can have an awesome party at a museum!) The expected number of attendees is around 4,000 and Elementor’s extended group of representatives counts for about half of it (well, maybe a bit less).
Our lovely team is ready and eager to go. This time around our team will be bigger than previously and will include:
- Yoni Luksenberg – Co-Founder & CEO
- Kfir Biton – CRO
- Ben Pines – Evangelist & Head of Content
- Zvi Shapira – Head of Business Development and Affiliation
- Saar Kedem – Head of Education
- Nofar Ben Dror Paecht – Head of Community
- Lisa Raz – Social Media Manager
- Donna Cavalier – Educator
- Verdi Heinz – Community Leader
Elementor is proud to be a platinum sponsor of this event.
