WordCamp Manchester – Call for Speakers Submission Date Change

With only a few weeks before WordCamp Manchester, the team has decided to move the Call for Speakers submission date forward to the 31st May.

This is to ensure that we have enough time to contact all the speakers and publicise the talks ahead of the camp.

Apologies to anyone who was planning to submit in June but hopefully we’ve given you enough notice to get your talks submitted!

Remember we are interesting in all topics and if you are not sure of what talk to give, there are some ideas on our Call for Speakers page!
