1296854487store_details_davenbusters

No WordCamp would be complete without an amazing after-party and WordCamp Miami is having our party in one of the most entertaining places in the area – Dave and Buster’s.

A WordCamp Miami after party isn’t just about drinking and eating – but having fun with friends, networking, and making new connections – all within a nice family atmosphere. So after the conference day ends on Saturday come straight to the official #WCMIA Networking After Party at Dave and Buster’s which is located at the Dolphin Mall, one of Miami’s hottest retail shopping centers.

Saturday February 20th 6:00pm to 9:30pm

Take the GoDaddy Bus!


GoDaddy, one of our Silver Sponsors, has provided a bus to take attendees to and from the After Party. The bus will be providing round trip service (on the half hour) between FIU and Dave & Busters starting at 5:30 pm until 10:30 pm Saturday night. The bus will have GoDaddy decals on the exterior for easy visibility.

To get a seat on the bus you need to show the driver the ticket on this page http://gddy.co/WCMIA. Just show the page to the driver on whatever device you have or print it out (who does that?).

GoDaddy is also providing optional Uber credits to go to and from the party. Follow the same link to redeem (info at bottom of page link). http://gddy.co/WCMIA

We are planning on providing a limited number of drink tickets (beer or wine only). Details will be provided at the closing remarks on Saturday.

We will be serving appetizer like food. If you want to enjoy additional dining experiences, the Dolphin Mall has several other restaurants including Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar, P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Taco Vida, Latin Grill, The Cheesecake Factory and many more.
