WordCamps and local meetups are back! After a tough few years, we are finally able to get back together and celebrate all things WordPress under one roof. This year, we have covered WordCamp Europe and WCUS, but local and regional WordCamps are still just as important.
That’s why we are excited for WordCamp Rochester 2023. This one day event is perfect for anyone looking to level up their website on Saturday and get back to work on Monday.
Held on September 30 at the Rochester School of the Arts, this conference is jam-packed with talks from experts ranging from page builders, the community, the future of WordPress, and much more.
Let’s dive into everything you can expect from WordCamp Rochester 2023.

WordCamp organizers have worked tirelessly to find the very best speakers. There are 18 incredible talks but there are a few we wouldn’t want to miss.
Kicking off the entire event is the Opening Remarks with Senator Jeremy A Cooney. Senator Cooney came into office in 2020 as the first Asian American elected to office from upstate New York. This is an excellent way to set the tone for the weekend.
