Honda Seekonk Sponsors WordCampRI 2016

By 0 Permalink 0

A couple of weeks ago, Herb Chambers Honda Seekonk had the opportunity to sponsor a fantastic event in the local tech community: WordCampRI. WordCampRI 2016 took place on September 30th and October 1st at New England Tech in East Greenwich, RI. We were thrilled to lend our support!

WordCamp is an event offering workshops and talks on WordPress, one of the most powerful and popular open-source blogging and web development platforms in the world. There are WordCamp events going on all over the world at any given time–in fact, if you check their website, you’ll probably find one in your area! Attendees include developers, web designers, business owners, and more.

We’ve sponsored WordCamp in the past–being Honda fans, we love to get technical! Our blog, is a WordPress blog and at this writing, we’ve been able to publish nearly 150 articles. For over four years, we’ve used WordPress to tell our customers’ and employees’ stories, promote local community efforts, recommend great road trip destinations, share tips from our service department, and of course, show our super fun Honda Laura videos.

WordCamp is run entirely by volunteers. Sponsorships help keep the ticket price affordable, so that people can attend and learn to use WordPress for professional or personal websites and blogs. Aaron Ware, president of local digital agency Linchpin, co-organized the event this year. “We have been extremely fortunate to have local businesses large and small want to be involved in WordCamp Rhode Island,” Aaron told us. “Without sponsors like Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk/We Heart Honda, it would be incredibly difficult to put on such a successful event. As an organizer I cannot thank them enough for their continued support. We look forward to an amazing WordCamp Rhode Island 2017 and beyond.”

Honda Mama attended the conference and spoke about content marketing, sharing some examples of content from our blog. All in all, it was a wonderful event. We at Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk were glad to play a part in helping our local tech community gather for a couple of days to share information and education about WordPress!
