Atarim is set to host its fourth annual Web Agency Summit from April 25-28, a virtual event aimed at web agencies and WordPress professionals. The summit will focus on web trends, scaling an agency or freelance business, attracting high-paying clients, and building recurring revenue. The event was born out of the organizers’ frustration with the cancellation of the first WordCamp Asia at the beginning of the pandemic.
Founder of ScaleMath, Alex Panagis, said, “When WordCamp Asia was first canceled, I had a lot of thoughts, of course. Something that we were somewhat really hoping would help us make a big splash in the industry was pulled away from right under us. But, instead of letting this setback get to us – we decided we had to do something.” The result was the first virtual summit in the industry, which was well-received and supported by sponsors like GoDaddy and WordPress.org.
This year’s lineup includes representatives from Microsoft, Google, Yoast, Hubspot, XWP, Elementor, and over 40 WordPress experts. The summit will feature individual speaker sessions, such as “Headless WordPress – does this approach make sense?” and “The Role of AI in Content & SEO.” Attendees will also have the opportunity to join sessions on boosting client acquisition on LinkedIn, growing a freelancing business, productizing designs, launching a podcast, managing contractor teams, and more.
In addition to individual speaker sessions, this year’s event will feature seven expert-led panels covering topics such as industry acquisitions and investments shaping the future of WordPress, building communities for web design agency growth, and exploring the power of next-generation website and page builders. Attendees will also be able to meet sponsors in a virtual festival village to win prizes and join breakout rooms to network and make new industry connections.
Registration for the Web Agency Summit is free but seats are limited. Every presentation will be recorded and will be available to watch for free live and for 24 hours following the event.
