Did you miss a WordCamp session because there were too many great options at the same time? We understand — you had to make a decision. You had to choose one over another. So, you went to one, but really ALSO wanted to see another presentation that was happening at the same time. Well, now you can watch that session you missed! We’re excited to announce the session videos are live on WordPress.tv!
Now you can relive a session you really enjoyed and see if you gain something new — chances are you will! Or, watch one you missed the first time. And, if you couldn’t make it to WordCamp Asheville, be sure to check out the sessions. It’ll give you a taste of what you missed, and what you can expect from WordCamp 2015!
Thanks to the efforts of our videographers at Digital Fridge and organizer Julien Melissas, the sessions were recorded and are being uploaded to WordPress.tv. Please note that at the time of this post, not all the presentations have been uploaded, so please check back over the coming weeks for more.
Many thanks to one of our speakers, Andrew Kinnear, for providing us the snazzy intro animation and music used in each video!

A Big THANK YOU! to everyone that came out and participated in the first annual Asheville PreCamp event. As promised, below is a link to the slideshow that was used for the presentation. We successfully built 50 WordPress websites in unison. A special thanks to SiteGround for the year of free hosting for all of the participants.

Any Track, Any Session
You are able to attend any session in any track, but be aware space is tight in some rooms and you should still arrive promptly before each session to ensure a spot. Because of space limitations, please travel light. You may not have a table/surface to place your laptop on.
Following each day’s sessions will be a casual gathering at The Wedge in the River Arts District. Bring your Name Badge to get your first beer free! The Wedge is frequented by food trucks so you may be able to get a snack or dinner here as well.

- Wear your name badge at all times.
- If you bring a laptop, charge it before you arrive. Don’t count on an outlet or power strip to always be available, and you may not always have a table to set it on.
- Bring your business cards.

WordCamp Asheville is shaping up to be a fantastic weekend. Planning is well under way and all the pieces are starting to fall into place.
That being said, we sincerely couldn’t do this without the help of our gracious sponsors. We would like to extend a big ol’ thank you to these kind folks. You’re the best!
Small Business Sponsors
Hello Campers! We’ve put together some hotel information and reservations designed to help those coming to WordCamp from out of town. The hotels were selected based on their close proximity to our venue – the BASE at Enka, about 9 miles west of downtown Asheville. However, there are a plethora of hotels more centrally located if you’re looking to get more of the Asheville experience out of your visit. Reserve your room today!
