Blog / Community / Join us for WordCamp US 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee December 1-3

Every year WordPress users from all over the United States (and several other countries) descend on the venue for WordCamp US. It’s by far the biggest WordCamp in the United States and aside from having tons of great speakers and sponsors on hand to meet and learn from, it’s the WordCamp where Matt Mullenweg delivers his highly anticipated annual address: The State of the Word.

In short, it’s where each year the WordPress Community as a whole begins to prepare itself for the next chapter in the story of WordPress.

We plan to be there and we’d love it if you joined us.

The Who, What, When, and Where

This year WordCamp US will be held in Nashville, Tennessee. The Mecca of music in the States and home to what many believe is the best spicy chicken to be had. It’s also, apparently, a really fun city to just hang out in. Which is great news for us, because that’s exactly what we plan to do!

And who will be hanging out?

From the Elegant Themes staff there will be six of us. The most people we’ve ever sent to a WordCamp! It’ll be Kenny Sing (our Director of Design; the person behind all the amazing freebies from the Divi Design Initiative), Mitch Skolnik (our Director of Operations), B.J. Keeton (content creator), Jason Champagne (content creator), myself (of course), and our intrepid CEO Nick Roach.

So far, we’re also seeing that at least 40+ other Divi Nation community members plan to be in town too!

If you’d like to be one of them we recommend getting your tickets to the camp today.

(Not because they’re likely to sell out, but once you have the tickets you’ll need to get working on your hotel arrangements and travel as well. And it’s good to get all that started as quickly as possible!)

After all, this camp is coming up fast! It takes place on December first and the action is going to begin right away.

A Divi Nation and WordCamp US Tradition

Not only does the WordCamp itself have a lot going on, but each year we also help to facilitate a series of casual meetups and hangout sessions specifically for the Divi Nation throughout the WordCamp weekend. The first one being a coffee and pastry meet and greet at a coffee shop near the camp venue on the very first morning.

Kick Things Off with the Divi Nation Meet & Greet


Our meetup location! Tin Cup Coffee!

At our coffee and pastry meet and greet there will be free (you guessed it) coffee, pastries, and Divi swag. Such as our Powered by Divi t-shirts! Which, by the way, is great for helping us all spot each other throughout the rest of the camp.

This morning meetup (again, on Friday December 1) is the perfect way to begin your WordCamp. By immediately establishing a big set of friendly faces with similar tools in their every day WordPress design and development toolkit can really kickstart the learning, growth, and beneficial conversations WordCamps are famous for.

RSVP for the Divi Nation Meet & Greet

See You There!

We’ll do our best to get the word (pun intended) out for this meetup a few more times before WordCamp US. But like I said above, if you’d like to go it’s best to get that process started today. I’m really excited for what this camp has in store and I know we’ll do our best to add as much fun and value as we can too. Hope to see you there!

  1. I’ll be there. I’ll be sure to stop by.

  2. Hey guys, I will be going also. I will glad to meet you all in person 🙂
    Are you going to have a booth?

  3. Just switched to WP / DIVI in September. Is this a forum where I can tap brains and get exposure to how O am using it and better options as I grow my small business?

  4. I am looking forward to WordCamp US, meeting the Elegant Themes staff members who will be attending the meetup at Tin Cup Coffee and also meeting other Divi users.

  5. Hello friends

    On December 2, 2017 I will go to my first WordCamp that will be held in the city of São Paulo, Brazil.

    I would love to get in touch with more people from my country who also use DIVI.

    The Eleganth Themes team might consider sponsoring the event next time or organizing a DIVI user meeting.

    I would love to have a T-shirt for you can spread this theme that I love so much.
