 @andreamiddleton, I'm not entirely clear on the details of how the
 Community Team wants this to work.

 * Should pages like https://2016.singapore.wordcamp.org/sponsors/ only
 show an excerpt of the sponsor description, rather than their full blurb?
 If an attendee wanted to read the full description, then they would click
 on the sponsor's name, and be taken to their individual page (e.g.,
 * If so, should that be the only option, or should there also be an option
 to show the full description on pages like
 https://2016.singapore.wordcamp.org/sponsors/ ? If there are options,
 which one should be the default?
 * Should organizers determine the excerpt length, or should that be hard-
 coded? If so, what should the length be? The default in WordPress is `55`
 * Should there be an option to hide the excerpt, so that only the sponsor
 logo is shown?

 Here's some counts on some current sponsors:

 WooCommerce: 178 words, 1195 characters
 Jetpack: 66 words, 459 characters
 GoDaddy: 62 words, 416 characters
 Bluehost: 78 words, 469 characters
 WPML: 94 words, 602 characters
