Tribe Meetups and Speed Networking are back! Again. After two successful WordCamps Europe, where you loved them and asked for more – we’re glad we can announce that we’ll have three Speed Networking and ten Tribe Meetup sessions.
We know how important it is to meet people at WordCamp Europe, and while we are aware everyone is friendly and outgoing, we thought we’d give you some specific occasions for meeting others.
The speed networking and tribe meetups will be held in Salle Haussmann!
You’ll have around 2-3 minutes to introduce yourself to and meet someone from the WordPress community and, when you hear the signal, you’ll then witch and move on to someone else! We’re hoping you’ll get to meet some new people you wouldn’t have been able to meet otherwise.
In parallel with the amazing content being covered in various sessions over the two days, we’re also going to have a time dedicated to specific interest groups so you can get to know each other and talk about your shared interests in Tribe Meetups.
The Tribe Meetups are optional, unstructured, and unmoderated – we’ll provide a space to gather, and you can bring yourself and be ready to meet your fellow tribe members. The primary focus is networking and meeting others!
Do I need to sign up ahead of time?
Space is not unlimited, so yes – we’ll need you to fill out this form if you’re interested. Registration is not a requirement to attend, nor is it a commitment to be there, but we’d like to get a sense of participation interest before the event. Let other people know via Twitter (use the #WCEU hashtag) which Tribe Meetup(s) you’ll be attending!
What do I need to do to participate?
Go to the appointed space during the time slot for your tribe, indicated below. Please don’t go into the tribe meetup space unless it’s your tribe meeting so we can keep conversations focused.
