After seven years of navigating the twists and turns of the business world, our team at POSIMYTH Innovations was gearing up for something new. The past couple of years, especially after the upheaval of Covid, had us rethinking our approach.
So, when the opportunity arose to sponsor our very first WordCamp locally in Ahmedabad, it felt like the perfect chance to dive into the heart of something fresh.
The excitement Twirl through the office was contagious. We were all hyped up to make the most out of this event and share our experiences. Little did we know that the 9th of December, 2023, would mark a significant milestone in our journey.
WordCamp Ahmedabad was more than just an event for us at POSIMYTH Innovations. It was a vibrant platform where we delved into the heart of WordPress, connected with a dynamic community, and celebrated the spirit of innovation.
From sponsoring the event to active participation, our team’s experience was nothing short of exhilarating.
What are WordPress WordCamps?
WordCamps are essentially community-organized conferences centered around WordPress, the popular open-source content management system. These events are organized globally and cater to everyone, from casual users to developers, designers, and business owners who leverage WordPress in various ways.
They’re not just about technical discussions; WordCamps cover a wide range of topics. There are sessions on content creation, design, development, marketing, SEO, and even business strategies. It’s a place to learn from experts, ask questions, and gain insights into making the most out of WordPress.
Beyond the talks and workshops, WordCamps foster an incredible sense of community. They’re a melting pot where individuals with different skill sets and experiences come together to share knowledge, collaborate, and build connections.
Whether you’re a beginner eager to learn or an expert wanting to network, WordCamps offer something valuable for everyone.

Sponsoring Our First WordCamp for the Community
While our CEO Sagar Patel, was helping organize WordCamp, our team at POSIMYTH was busy planning something special for our booth. We wanted to make it the coolest spot at the event!
Sponsoring WordCamp Ahmedabad was a significant milestone for us at POSIMYTH Innovations. We were excited to be part of an event that fosters learning and collaboration within the WordPress community.
Starting with the booth design, our team at POSIMYTH collaborated with our design to create an eye-catching setup. But that’s not all! We dived into the nitty-gritty, crafting cool keychains, stickers, and other branding elements.
Our mission? To ensure that everyone who visited our booth left with swag they’d love!
To jazz things up, we came up with six unique sticker designs and even had temperature checker bottles. The excitement was brewing as we geared up to share these awesome goodies at WordCamp Ahmedabad!
Here are some snaps of stickers
To make our booth a must-visit spot, we didn’t just stop at swag – we launched a super exciting game – Arrow Strike!
Out of the 1000+ attendees at WordCamp Ahmedabad, a whopping 700+ joined in on the fun at our booth to play this game and snag some goodies.
For top game scorers! Our special agency bundle awaits the highest achiever, featuring all five of our premium products. Redeemable for a one-year license, it includes The Plus Addons for Elementor, The Plus Blocks for Gutenberg, Nexter WordPress Theme, WDesignkit, and UiChemy.

But wait, there’s more to our booth story! Amidst the excitement of our game and swag galore, we set up a unique canvas. This canvas showcased two popular page builders, and we invited visitors to mark their favorite.
The results? Well, they weren’t all that surprising! Elementor stole the show, winning the hearts of the majority. It was fascinating to witness the clear preference and enthusiasm for a specific page builder among the attendees.
Looks like Elementor was the undisputed champion at WordCamp Ahmedabad!
