Share a room? Got an extra ticket?

We are counting down to the holidays, and then of course PressNomics 3 is upon us.

We’ve seen some chatter on twitter about folks looking for a ticket, and a few folks looking to off load a ticket. A few are also looking to split a room at Tempe Mission Palms. Use the comments below to post if you are buying/selling a ticket and if you have or are seeking a roommate at the hotel.

Thank you to our top sponsors: Microsoft Azure, Envato, Pagely, and Mojo

PressNomics Social Saturday: Golf and Guitars

One of the things that makes PressNomics such a great event (according to our past attendees) is the structured social event’s on Saturday. This is power networking for attendees.

This year we will be holding our 3rd annual Golf Tournament. For those desiring a less ‘sporting’ event we will be taking folks by bus to a one of a kind museum here in Phoenix. The Musical Instrument Museum, or MIM, is rated the #1 attraction in Phoenix by tripadvisor, and top 25 nationally. It is also a personal favorite of Sally and I. Any other music buffs out there?

The Saturday activities are NOT included in your ticket price this year and a separate ticket must be purchased for $50 if you wish to golf or travel to the MIM.  Remember proceeds from PressNomics benefit St Judes Children’s Research Hospital, so that is why we are mindful of budgeting for these activities.

Remember to book your travel ;)

WordPress Mergers and Acquistions

So raise your hand if you have NOT been approached by GoDaddy, Endurance, or Automattic to buy or acqui-hire your WordPress company. <Only 2 hands go up>

mergers-and-acquisitions-209

WordPress is hot, everyone wants in. The market is consolidating at the theme, plugin, and agency levels with recent deals involving names you recognize. WDS picks up Maintainn after Maintainn picked up WPSell, Velomedia is on a tear scooping up Pixel Jar, CrowdFavorite, and then Forty.  Lift picked up ChurchThemes, Pagely took over BlogDroid, Syed and Thomas go full voltron on optinmoster and other projects, and I know I am forgetting at least 20 others.

So Shane Pearlman stopped me at #wcsf and pitched me this idea for a panel at Pn3. Who am I to deny Shane? Friday will feature an hour long conversation on WP M&A hosted by Shane Pearlman, with guests Jake Goldman, Dre Armeda, Karim Marucchi, and Syed Balkhi.

PressNomics 3 is SOLD OUT

As the title says, Mason James at WPValet scored the last ticket for PressNomics 3.  There is a waitlist and we will likely let a few more trickle out to that waitlist in the coming months.
