binocsAny 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.

After Party!

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.

pack     Don’t Forget…

  • 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.
  • Bring a sweater in case the air conditioning goes into overdrive!

Do you need a hotel?

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!
