Leading open-source website builder Elementor is commemorating its five-year anniversary with its latest annual conference.
The free event, #webcreators2021, gets underway on June 16 at 11am (EST) and is pitched at web creators, marketeers, and digital designers.
Serial entrepreneur and digital marketer Gary Vaynerchuk, CEO of New York-based communications firm VaynerX, will be a keynote speaker at the conference while Seth Godin, best-selling author of marketing bible This is Marketing, will make an appearance to discuss the importance of future-proofing your business.
Each of the thought leaders will welcome questions from virtual attendees after back-to-back presentations.
Branding guru Swan Sit, who ran digital strategy for the likes of Nike and Estée Lauder and has amassed over 3 million followers on Clubhouse, completes the roster of high-profile guest speakers.
Sit will leverage her extensive experience with Fortune 500 companies to speak about Big Brand Secrets Every Web Creator Should Know.
Unleashing Infinite Creative Power
“We are enabling web creators to realize their full potential,” explains Yoni Lukensburg, CEO of Elementor.
“Elementor unleashes the infinite creative power of web creators by giving them the tools they need to build professional websites, innovate, and stretch their creative limits.
“Our passionate global community of web creators are highly talented, engaged, and supportive of each other – and this event is for them.”
Elementor has been installed over 5 million times by clients in over 180 countries since launching in 2016.
One of the world’s leading website builder platform on WordPress, the company helps web professionals (content writers, developers, designers) and creative agencies maximize their potential by creating user-friendly, high-converting websites.
“This conference is not about directing professional web creators to build advanced features, it’s about enabling them the freedom to dream and make a difference,” said Seth Godin, who has curated several marketing courses for e-learning platform Udemy. “Building the future of the internet requires an inclusive culture where individuality and collaboration meet to create possibility.”
Elementor’s Head of Design Ronit Cyjon will bring the curtain down on this year’s conference with a discussion about how he oversaw the platform’s recent website redesign.
Cyjon will talk about striking the balance between achieving business goals and exercising design freedom.
Eight Million and Counting
Elementor boasts that over eight million websites operate under its banner, aided by its close ties with the WordPress community.
This unrivaled user base has made it the web’s premier provider of digital advisory services, from back-end development to design and marketing. Web development can be a lonely business, however, particularly at a time when many professionals are working from home.
While Elementor’s fifth annual conference can’t fix that, it can at least bring digital natives together for a day to hang out, learn, and draw inspiration from fellow souls.
