We participated as a sponsor at WordCamp US 2023, which took place from August 24th to 26th in National Harbor, Maryland, USA.
With more than 1,800 visitors and 49 companies as sponsors, it was a large and lively event with a wide range of learning and interaction.
Prime Strategy’s booth
As an “Author Sponsor,” we exhibited our booth for two days on the 25th and 26th.
We leveraged ONIMARU to demonstrate PageSpeed Insights improvement with WEXAL.
Stickers and clear files of Saya Kusanagi were also very well received.
Interaction with sponsors
WordPress plug-ins, security services, and platform operators were exhibiting as sponsors, and we were able to have many conversations with them.

In the final session of the last day, Matt Mullenweg, co-founder of WordPress and CEO of Automattic, spoke about the technical improvements seen this year and what the future holds. I was very impressed with the care taken in scheduling this session to ensure that all attendees, including sponsors, were able to participate, as well as the schedule for clearing the venue.
For the future
Although it was a short period of time, we were able to learn about how companies in the US interact with the community, what users expect, and what hosting companies are doing.
We promise again to apply this experience to the development of our products and services, and to continue contributing to the WordPress community, aiming to realize our corporate philosophy of “developing enterprise ecosystems”.
As a participant from Japan, we received a lot of support from the management. We would like to express our sincere thanks to the WordPress community, the visitors, and the management for their warm welcome.
