It is with great excitement that I announce the opening of ticket sales for the Press Publish conference series we teased here earlier this month!

After scouring the web for bloggers with inspiring stories, successful blogs, and unique voices, we’ve confirmed the speaker lineups, and are thrilled to be including popular WordPress.com bloggers like Katherine FritzJerry MahoneyEmily Austin, and Russ Crandall. Here’s our collection of featured blogger speakers:

You can see who’s speaking where by checking the event pages for Portland and Phoenix.

In addition to notable bloggers, we’ve hand-picked a variety of folks who work behind the scenes here at WordPress.com to present tutorials and provide one-on-one site help to our attendees. Our roster is filled with friendly faces happy to help you with your blog — they do it every day, after all!

Each event will be a little bit different and will feature different speakers and staff, so if you are thinking of traveling to attend, make sure you check out both events before deciding.🙂

Portland, OR: Saturday, March 28, 2015

We’ll be in downtown Portland at a historic hotel, running two tracks of presentations alongside ongoing tutorials and open help time in the Happiness Lounge. We’re especially looking forward to the pre-registration mixer on Friday evening, which will be combined with a live Longreads storytelling event. Stories! Blogs! Bloggers! Fun!

Phoenix, AZ: April 18, 2015

The Phoenix event is being held at a beautiful art & history museum, and will run one track of presentations along with ongoing tutorials and help from Happiness Engineers. Lunch outside in the plaza is sure to be lovely, so if you live in a state where winter seems to last forever, maybe a little sunshine getaway to Press Publish is just the ticket!

Full speaker lists and event information are available on the Press Publish site. Hope to see you there!

    Sounds like a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I will be unable to make it. Will any of these be live streamed or posted on youtube?

    Fingers crossed you post some videos, or perhaps Sydney would be a nice venue one day?🙂

    Do you have one lined up for Chicago? I’m from the Philippines, but I usually take a vacation in Chicago at around June. Hope there will be an event in that city or just nearby.

      Not as yet; right now we’re focused on the Portland and Phoenix pilot events. We’ll make a decision on if we are going to produce more events in other cities based on how these two do. The best thing you can do te help us get to more cities is publicize the Portland and Phoenix events — if they sell out, it’s very likely we’ll do more cities.🙂

    USA centred so the rest of us can’t attend. Hope you will make it available on a YouTube video or something similar.

    Echoing everyone else who can’t attend due to location. If you can bring such an event to the Philippines, I’d be there.😉

      We are starting with Pheonix and Portland as pilot events. If they go well, we’ll be looking at bringing Press Publish to other cities in the future.
