Call for Sponsors

WordFest Live – a global 24-hour celebration of WordPress – will bring our community together in a safe environment. We are enabling freedom of movement to connect with people within the virtual event space.

This is your opportunity to be part of something unique, view packages.

WordFest Live is the Festival of WordPress, and you will have the opportunity to be featured during sessions, on stage, and backstage in our virtual ‘tents’. Connect with more than 3,500 attendees from the WordPress community.

Your support will go towards the Big Orange Heart Foundation, a registered non-profit. 100% of the money raised will go directly into the further development of
the BOH Support Hub, the delivery mechanism for our free well-being and mental health support into the remote working community.

Where and when?

Featuring guests, speakers and sponsors from six continents.

Live Captioning

At WordFest Live we offer live human captioning to make our event more accessible for all attendees. This comes at a cost, particularly when you consider that it is a 24-hour global event. To cover the cost, we have opened up sponsorship opportunities for individuals and companies to step in and help out (2 for each continent). In exchange you get to have your brand highly visible across our global stages, it is a low-touch way to be seen by a global audience.

Photo Booth

A fun way to enable attendees to jump in our virtual photo booth and take a snap of them at WordFest Live. Check out some of the photos from WordFest Live – July 2021. As a thank you for your support, we’ll add your logo to the photo frame. We’ll encourage attendees to share their WordFest Live experience on social media with their photo booth snaps. We have 3 packages available.

Not having any WordPress events meant that I couldn't see so many friends and colleagues that I was used to seeing. WordFest Live was such a fun day, I did chair yoga, hopped in many of the sponsor tents and interacted in the chat. I learned new things and got to check on all my friends, it was such a great day!

I am enamoured by the support and love of this WordPress community called Big Orange Heart. The WordFest Live event was a roller coaster of amazing proportions. We got practical information and great tips to take our skills to the next level in one QUICK 24 hour flash! My head is spinning from the amazing presentations. I am smarter now by losing sleep!

WordFest Live 2021 made me feel like I was at a live WordCamp event (at least as close to it being virtual!). It was the first online event I've attended where I felt deeply connected to the entire community. I felt welcomed into new space and conversations with open arms and encouraged to share my voice. The speakers had a wealth of information to share and the sponsors, emcees, and volunteers were all lively, engaging, and fun to be with. I loved WordFest Live 2021!
