Like any event, the summit will cost money to produce. In addition to expenses like venue, wifi, and food, we also needed to raise money to subsidize travel expenses for some of our community volunteers who don’t get paid for their work on WordPress and/or whose travel expenses are significantly higher than those of US travelers. The following people sponsored this event — the first of its kind, and unique in intent, format, and attendee influence — and helped a piece of WordPress history.
