Back in 2020, as we all went into lockdown and live events were cancelled around the world, most of us sheltered in place and gorged ourselves on a steady diet of doom scrolling, bread making and Tiger King.
As WordCamp Asia 2020 was cancelled just days before it was due to open, throwing off all his carefully laid plans, our Founder and CEO Vito Peleg could tell our industry was scared – and he needed to do something.
Within a week he’d not only mapped out his idea for an online summit for the web agency and WordPress worlds, but he’d built the virtual platform to hold it on and started to find Sponsors and Speakers to help him make it happen.
The Web Agency Summit was born, and has run successfully each year since – growing in size and popularity even as the impacts of covid receded and live events tentatively restarted.
Following the 2022 event we spoke to attendees, as well as our Speakers, Sponsors and Media Partners, and they were unanimous – even in a post-covid world, the Web Agency Summit has a huge part to play in bringing together agency owners and WordPress users with industry experts, businesses in the space, and the very best teachers. The networking opportunities were also seen as hugely beneficial.
And so…the Web Agency Summit is back!
A Festival Atmosphere & Everyone Welcome
You might notice that this year, the Summit has had a lick of paint!
We decided to shake things up a bit, and so in 2023 – and since our Co-Founder is a former rockstar after all – the Summit is all about building a festival atmosphere.
One of the most wonderful things about music festivals – particularly those that share our bright, colourful vibe – is that everyone is welcome.
Festivals are inspirational melting pot of fans, music acts and even businesses, coming from a wide variety of backgrounds, locations and walks of life.
In stark comparison to the conflict seen across the world right now, for the most part, despite bringing huge numbers of people together in one place, festivals pass without aggression or aggravation.
This really speaks to us, and aligns perfectly with what we believe the Summit stands for:
Everyone is welcome.
Diversity and inclusion matter to us as a company and as individuals – and not as part of some corporate ‘tickbox’ exercise. It’s actually something that you can even see demonstrated by the racial and religious diversity of the Atarim team.
What brings us together at Atarim is a common cause. A genuine passion to make communication and collaboration easier, faster and smoother for agency owners, freelancers & teams across the world.
When it comes to the Summit, what we all want – from the organisers to the attendees, the speakers to the sponsors, the attendees to the media partners – is for as many people as possible to come together during the 4 day event duration to teach and inspire, to reach out and connect, and to learn and discover.
Annnd we can have a whole lot of fun while doing so!
Sounds like a festival to us 🙂
