2016 Global Sponsorship outreach progress report

Last week we finalized our 2016 Global Community Sponsorship program, yay! Working with @kcristiano, I emailed details about the program to past and some prospective sponsors who had already expressed interest.

Here’s a list of those companies; unless noted otherwise, all of them are reviewing the program details and will get back to me when they’ve made their decisions. 🙂

2015 global sponsors have all been contacted:
Bluehost – confirmed as Gold level for Western and Silver level for Eastern region for 2016
WPML – confirmed as Bronze level for Western and Eastern regions for 2016
WiredTree – not yet confirmed; mentioned wanting to reduce their sponsorship level in 2016
Planethoster – not interested in global sponsorship for 2016

Companies that had expressed interest in the program previously have also been contacted:
Pantheon – confirmed as Silver level for Western region for 2016
GMO Internet Group

In January, we’ll email every company that sponsored a WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. in 2015 to thank them for their support and let them know about the global sponsorship program as well.
