Postponed: WordCamp Nairobi 2017

We had scheduled WordCamp Nairobi for 14th and 15th October at Michael Joseph Centre in Westlands.

With the repeat Presidential elections scheduled for 17th October, we have been forced to move the dates for WordCamp Nairobi to 4th and 5th November 2017. We have taken this step to ensure the safety of the attendees and also to be sure to have a successful WordCamp in Nairobi.

The venue remains the same.

Introducing WordCamp Nairobi Micro-sponsorship

We are pleased to introduce a new sponsorship level, which is a $100 (KES. 10,000) micro-sponsorship intended for freelancers, SMS, or WordPress fans who wish to give a little more than the cost of general admission to help make WordCamp Nairobi awesome.

This sponsorship includes a ticket to WordCamp Nairobi, and we’ll publish your name or company name on our supporters list on the website.

If you are interested in Micro-sponsorships, please contact us. If you’ve already bought a ticket and would like to upgrade to a micro-sponsorship, get in touch and we can help make that happen.

Call for Sponsors

WordCamp Nairobi 2017 will be hosted at Michael Joseph Centre on November 4th-5th, 2017.

WordCamps are casual, volunteer-run events. Sponsor support for WordCamp enables attendees to experience the event for a low cost! A low cost ensures accessibility to freelancers, small businesses and anyone who wants to attend.

Being a sponsor gives you a unique opportunity to invest in the Nairobi WordPress community. The attendees are made up of web-savvy professionals who work in media, publishing, film, music, art, technology, education, healthcare, financial services, government… you name it.

We have all benefited from using WordPress; now is the perfect time to give something back. We’ve created sponsorship levels to fit every budget from the multinational corporations of midtown to small local businesses to independent freelancers building WordPress themes for a living. Even if you are a small agency, restaurant, magazine, or an individual wanting to give back because you know that WordPress has helped you and your business, we have a support level for you.

If you would like to sponsor, please fill out the form below and we will be in touch. Thank you for all your help!
