Join MOJO Marketplace at Pressnomics 5!
This year, MOJO Marketplace will be the title sponsor at Pressnomics 5.
Just saying that, gives me so much pride. WordPress has been a part of my professional life for the last 10+ years. Knowing that I have the ability to be able to represent my company at such a big event for the WordPress ecosystem is a big deal for me and the MOJO team. We’ve put a lot into this years Pressnomics conference and we’re excited to be able to spend time with those from the WordPress and MOJO community.
Plus who doesn’t love MOJO swag! 😉
What is Pressnomics?
In short, Pressnomics is “the conference for those that power the WordPress Economy“. These are the people building incredible businesses with WordPress. The Pressnomics conference is by far my favorite conference of the year. MOJO has been part of every event and the fact that we’re already attending the 5th conference just brings a smile to my face. It probably has to do with the fact that Sally and Josh are the ones behind it and I love those guys. It’s always been so well done from start to finish, year in and year out.
The last 5 years of Pressnomics
As I sat down to write this post, I was reflecting back on how different the WordPress economy was 5 years ago. The first Pressnomics was November of 2012. For starters, back then WPCandy was breaking the news, MOJO was only 4 years old, WordPress 3.5 was just about to drop, they announced Make.WordPress.org and there were 67 WordCamps that year. In terms of MOJO 5 years ago, I remember the MOJO crew all shared one hotel room to save money. That’s right, all of us crammed into one tiny room.
At the time when Pressnomics was announced, it was such a foreign thought to have all of the same competitors in the same room together. It had never been done before in this way. I can still remember showing up that first day. We were so excited to get a chance to share war stories with people we had been competing with for years. The best part, is it’s never confrontational. We all understand how the eco-system of WordPress works and the respect for each company is understood.
Over the years, we’ve been able to strengthen relationships with friends in the WordPress community, learn from leaders in the space and grow together as team. Here’s a look back at some of the first Pressnomics events we attended.
Be sure to say hi!
If you’re attending this years Pressnomics event be sure to take a second to say hello. There will be a large group from the MOJO team attending. I know personally I’m looking forward to catching up with old friends and building relationships with new folks building businesses with WordPress!
