Thank You WordCamp Ottawa Sponsors!

Without the generous financial support of sponsors it would not be possible to host a WordCamp.

The launch of a WordCamp in a new host city is particularly challenging for the organizers because the event, the city, and the location are unproven. As a result, the sponsors for the inaugural WordCamp Ottawa deserve a special thanks because they were willing to support this event not knowing how successful it would be.

Fortunately, because of their early support, the first WordCamp Ottawa is turning out to be a major success.  Over 250 people will be attending WordCamp Ottawa 2013.

Here are the Bronze and above level sponsors for WordCamp Ottawa 2013. Thank you.
