What is WordFest Live 2021?
A Festival of Inclusive Event for Remote Workers
WordFest Live 2021 is a 24-hour global celebration of WordPress that brings together a community together in a safe environment. The festival facilitates freedom of movement within a virtual event.
Remote workers in the WordPress community need a space to be themselves, belong and mingle with like-minded folks.
WordFest will be celebrating our WordPress community. In addition to that there will be engaging talks about WordPress, remote working, and mental health. All with a dash of fun and excitement.
Celebrating the remote working environment can be harsh and lonely. Therefore, the online mega-event is designed for introverts and extroverts with virtual tables to break the ice and make networking easy and fun.
