WordPress Events and Conferences of 2017

One of the best things about WordPress is its dynamic (and global) community of users. Comprised of engineers, entrepreneurs, designers, marketers, and more, this group is on a constant quest to create, learn, and grow. And with the recent feature-packed release of WordPress 4.7, 2017 is poised to be a year of substantial growth for the WP community. Combine that with the enthusiastic collection of people working towards WordPress innovation, and you get some great collaborative events.

So in the spirit of collective learning, here are the WordPress events & conferences you won’t want to miss in 2017.


Where: Salt Lake City
When: February 6-8th

LoopConf is the perfect conference for developers who want to explore engineering and growth topics on a more detailed level. The event will provide craft talks on every aspect of WordPress design and development. Specifically, LoopConf focuses on how enterprise companies use WordPress. Attendees will learn from a group of 20 speakers comprised of engineers, agencies, and product teams. Plus, a new diversity scholarship will help bring traditionally underrepresented groups to the conference.


A Day of REST

Where: Boston
When: March 9th

This one-day conference covers the ins and outs of the new WordPress REST API.
