The destination was worth it! There was an amazing and welcoming atmosphere around.
Having a Booth as a Hosting Sponsor
At WordCamp, every sponsor gets a booth to showcase their offerings, so it feels like a great conference.
And yep, we even had our booth set up there. To share words about the experience at the booth was just beyond fantastic! We highlighted our WordPress products that aim to deliver a super-fast hosting experience.
Customer obsession has been our business! We collect insights from clients, especially regarding our products. Exactly the same, we introduced our products and really got a good response.

As the clock wound down, our booth was one of the most popular and visited by far! It really felt rewarding for our entire team.
To add fun and engage the visitors, we arranged a contest, wherein we got the best response! In return, we gave them amazing Goodies and they just loved it! The influx of people grew throughout the day and kept the team busy.
