WordCamp Belfast is a community run event, created by the community, for the community, and funded by the community. The entire event wouldn’t be possible without the support of businesses in our community who benefit from WordPress, such as those below. If you are interested in sponsoring, please take a look at our Sponsor Packages.
It would not be possible to have WordCamp Belfast without these wonderful sponsors who are choosing to support the WordPress community.
Let’s all thank these wonderful & generous sponsors!

The team at 1440 have been instrumental in the planning and creation of WCBelfast.
At every stage, 1440 have supported our WordCamp. By allowing two of their key members of staff to work on WordCamp artwork, website and the planning during office hours, when needed.
Peter at 1440 not only created the artwork for our site, but he also created the WordCamp Belfast logos and badges and even our ‘Wapuu of the North‘, which has been a real hit with everyone, the world over.
Sam (Samantha Nelson) has been a key member of the small organising team. And was one of the first to offer help in planning WCBelfast.
1440 will also be bringing their interactive screens to WordCamp Belfast to serve as information points for all attendees to benefit from and enjoy.
Without 1440, there may not have been a WordCamp in Belfast, for this we salute and thank them all!
