We reached the venue, in the vibrant city of Kolkata @ Hotel Altair on 17th December 2022. The destination was really worth it. There was a fun and welcoming atmosphere.
Yes, and we were super-happy to see so many WordPress fanatics, business professionals, attendees, fellow sponsors, and attendees around. The entire place was buzzing!

Our Booth at WordCamp
“Just amazing” is what we can say about the booth experience. The response was more than what we expected. There has literally been a buzz at our booth ever since we arrived. Apart from just WordPressers everywhere, we met many potentials as well as some existing clients as well.
It really feels motivational and rewarding to hear people’s positive feedback about what we do. Also, we introduced our new WordPress hosting on cloud partners like AWS, Digital Ocean, Linode & Vultr.
We also arranged a contest, wherein the attendees actively participated. We even distributed superb Swags, which everyone loved a lot.
Ending the Day! At last, momentos were given to those who participated in the panel discussion. Indeed, the event ended on a good note.
We’ve already marked the dates on the calendar for the next WordCamp on the list. Are you ready? Let’s contribute to the WordPress community and explore WordPress to the fullest!
