WordCamp Port Macquarie will be the 1st WordCamp in NSW outside of Sydney. WordCamps began in Aus back in 2008 when WordCamp Australia was held in Sydney. There is a log of past and upcoming Aussie WordCamps over at https://wpaustralia.org/events/.
The two-day event will take place during the Labour Day long weekend, on October 5 and 6 2019, and be held at the Charles Sturt University campus. WordCamp Port Macquarie will include two speakers tracks with 20+ volunteer speakers across two days, and an afterparty event on the Saturday night for Networking. Along with imbuing WordCamp with the spirit of Port Macquarie, two underlying themes will permeate the event: sustainability and mental/physical health.
Where possible, we are sourcing vendors that integrate sustainable business practices, and between talks attendees can take part in our Health track. Holding the event on a long weekend gives attendees travelling longer distances a rest day before returning to work, and provides travellers the opportunity of extending their trip and enjoying a working holiday.
Dates: October 5, 2019 - October 6, 2019
