WordCamp Asia 2021 is happening for the first time ever in Asia and we are very excited about it. WCASIA2021 is on for the month of January in Bangkok, Thailand.
Initially, WCASIA was about to take place in 2020. However, due to an outbreak of Coronavirus COVID-19 in the region, the organizers decided to postpone the event.
Its affordable location, ease of obtaining a visa on arrival for attendees from many Asian countries and the availability of inexpensive flights to most major cities in Asia are the reasons why Bangkok is a perfect pick for WCASIA2021.
Naoko is the Global Lead Organizer for WCASIA2021, whereas Nok is the Local Lead Organizer. The organizing team is expecting at least 1000 attendees from around the world for its first WordCamp.
Asia has a total of 127 WordPress Meetup Chapters across 23 countries, with over 73,000 members. There had been 137 WordCamps in 18 Asian countries and 52 cities. And in a continent like this, a regional WordCamp was a must and we’re happy that it’s finally taking place. The WordCamp would help the WordPress community in Asia grow stronger and bigger.
