Just as we promised, we continue our initiative for sponsoring and giving away free tickets for Open Source community organized events. This initiative started last December when we had few free WordCamp tickets to give away and thought "why not give them to our customers, now that we can't personally attend". Initially, this wasn't meant to become an ongoing project, but we did receive some great feedback from the people who attended the past events and no longer doubted if we should continue this. We learned that these events are a great opportunity for everyone, no matter how advanced user he/she is, to learn, network and gather new ideas and knowledge for the development of their own websites. And if there's one thing we strongly believe in, it is that we should help our customers along every step of the way: from a quick sign up process, through an easy and straightforward web site build up, to future growth and development of their online presence. And what better opportunity to get new knowledge, inspiration and ideas than attending such events? On top of it - for free!
In the end of the day, we have at least two reasons to be happy and proud of: on one hand we're helping the communities to grow by sponsoring the events, and on the other - we're helping you - our customers to make a difference with your website!
Without any further ado, here are the events we're proudly sponsoring and giving away free tickets for this March:
WordCamp Slovakia - March 17, 2012 - Zilina
WordCamp San Diego - March 24-25, 2012
Joomla!Day New England - March 31, 2012, Brattleboro, Vermont
As an addition to the free attendance, our free ticket winners will also receive custom SiteGround T-shirts designed especially for these events by our team. As we won't be able to be present at those events, we hope that our lucky ticket winners will send us pictures and recaps of the events so that we can share with all of you! We are sure that you - our customers - will be a great SiteGround face to both the WordPress and Joomla! events!
Applying for a free ticket is a piece of cake - just leave a comment below specifying the event you'd like to attend, and we'll get in touch with you for the details. If there are more people interested than the number of tickets we have, we will draw a lot, so that everyone has equal chance. The ticket winners will be announced in this blog post, so keep an eye on it!
