Wow. WordCamp Seattle 2013 has sold out in record time, just under 52 hours. A huge THANK YOU to the ~500 of you who purchased tickets already. We appreciate your support, and we look forward to seeing you for an amazing WordCamp June 8th!
If you didn’t get a ticket, don’t panic….
With an event that sells out this far in advance, it’s extremely likely that a significant number of people with tickets will cancel or have a change of plans. Here’s what to do:
- Comment on this post with your name and preferred contact method (twitter, email, phone, etc). This comment thread will serve as the wait-list.
- People who can’t use their ticket will be instructed to contact people on this comment thread to arrange a ticket transfer. We do not facilitate refunds or ticket transfers, it’s handled between the old and new ticket holder (we recommend PayPal or another easy online money transfer method – or you can certainly give your ticket away).
- When you and a ticket holder have reached an agreement, the ticket holder can give you their ticket confirmation link, which will allow you to edit the ticket from their information to your name, email address, and preferences.
- When you’re done receiving a ticket from another attendee, please leave a reply on your original comment on this post and notify us that you’ve successfully found a ticket.
*We ask that everyone respect the community by not scalping a WordCamp ticket (buying/selling for more than face value) .
That’s it! You’ll be on the list, and all set for WordCamp! If in the process of a ticket transfer there is any confusion, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with both involved parties included in the email.
We are very excited at the amazing response from the community this year. WordCamp Seattle 2012 sold out in 3 weeks with a capacity of 300 people. With a capacity of 500+ this year, it’s a clear indicator that our community is vibrant and growing.
Thank you to everyone for your support, we look forward to putting on an amazing WordCamp for you.
Grant, Ben & Bryan
