WordFest Live - a global 24-hour celebration of WordPress run by Big Orange Heart - will bring our community together in a safe environment. We are enabling freedom of movement to connect with people within the virtual event space.
WordFest Live is the Festival of WordPress, and you will have the opportunity to be featured during sessions and on stage. Connect with more than 3,000 attendees from the WordPress community. The event is run twice a year on March 4 and September 9 and kicks off from 00:00 UTC; see your local time here.
At WordFest Live we offer live human captioning to make our event more accessible for all attendees. This comes at a cost, particularly when you consider that it is a 24-hour global event.
To cover the cost, we’ve opened up sponsorship opportunities for each event — 2 for each continent on our schedule — for individuals and companies to step in and help out. The total cost for each package is $2,500 ($2,000 as donation and $500 as advertising).
All sponsorship is offered at the complete discretion of the Big Orange Heart Foundation. We reserve the right to refuse acceptance of support without limitation. All prices quoted are $ USD.
Interested? Sure! Who doesn’t want to help a mental health charity make the event more accessible, right? And while that covers the feel-good side, as a business owner, you’re likely wondering how this positively benefits your business.
When you sponsor captioning, you get your brand front and centre across both stages within an entire region. Whether captions are open or closed, your logo sits prominently below the window of both sessions. If they’re looking at their screen, they’re seeing your business.
By having your brand consistently under the session screen across both stages, your visual exposure throughout the event and each talk is in one of the highest visible locations. Your logo stays in front of all attendees watching all sessions for your selected continent.
