The following data is automatically updated from the WPCampus Get Involved form submissions (and other planning surveys) and will be used to help plan potential WPCampus events. No personal or identifying information is included. Use our contact form to submit any questions or comments.

Attendance

I don’t think this data is too surprising. For most, attending an event in person is usually preferable but, for those who can’t make it, it would be great to provide a live stream as well.

The Sessions

The form asks “For a WPCampus event, what sessions would you be interested in?”. There was an “other” option which allowed folks to submit their own ideas which is not included here. This information could be helpful in planning different event tracks or for seeing what topics interest the community.

Choosing The Best Time Of Year

We asked folks “What is the best time of year for you to attend a WPCampus event?” This information will help us choose which time of year might be best for maximum attendance.

Choosing The Best Location(s)

The following maps highlight the location and region of everyone who is interested in attending a WPCampus event in person. Knowing where possible attendees are traveling from will help us choose the most cost-efficient location(s) for the event.

Note: The “Where would you be traveling from?” field was not required so the number of markers does not also represent the number of interested attendees. These markers represent 642 (62%) of the total 1032 submissions.
