Get Your Tickets!

We’re looking forward to seeing you, but first you’ll need a ticket.


If you’d like to help out but can’t volunteer, speak or sponsor, you can buy an unsubsidised ticket and become a Little sponsor! Named after our resident co-founder Mike Little, this helps cover our costs and make organising that much easier. Our sponsors help us make WordCamp affordable for all, along with food, snacks, swag, speakers and after party.
