Our design team put a lot of effort into a new logo in the last weeks and it finally came to life! The original logo was designed by Tammie Lister and it evolved in the following years getting small alterations by the great design teams of each WordCamp.
The new logo is an evolution and homage to the old logo that is loved by the WordPress Community, keeping the dotted european map of the original logo.
Lucijan Blagonic is the designer of the new logo, front-end designer from Zagreb and part of this year’s design team.
Our design team wanted to create a new brand identity for WordCamp Europe, with a clear focus on the location of where the event is at. Each year the visual focus area will change based on its location. The look and feel of the logo will always be unique for the selected host city through the distinct location focus, the color scheme and typeface. The logo mark will however be universally the same and highly recognizable to create brand awareness.
To make it easier for future host cities the team will develop a logo generator to create and export the logo mark each year.
We love it! Do you?

We are doing things a little different this year, as we are announcing an official call for photographers.
In the previous years we recruited photographers from the volunteers pool. This year we decided to up the game and make a separate application available for photographers who want to document what will be the largest WordPress conference to date. Continue reading Call for Photographers

With over 2200 tickets already sold or reserved (for our sponsors, speakers, and volunteers), WordCamp Europe 2017 will be the biggest WordCamp to date.
Keep in mind that there won’t be any more tickets after this release, except reserved tickets that won’t get collected. Continue reading Final batch of tickets now on sale

WordPress is one of the most inclusive pieces of software today, and WordCamps — conferences about WordPress itself — are too. To make each WordCamp as inclusive as possible, and especially a WordCamp as big as WordCamp Europe, we really, really need your help. Albert Schweitzer, a German philosopher, born in the late 19th century once said – ”Wherever you turn, you can find someone who needs you. Even if it is a little thing, do something for which there is no pay but the privilege of doing it. Remember, you don’t live in the world all of your own.” And that is the real truth. We don’t live in a world alone. As individuals, we can do all so much; but if we work together, there is no limit to what we can achieve.
At WordCamp Europe, we need your help. We are building the biggest volunteer team ever, as we’re trying to accommodate 3000 people that will learn and contribute to WordPress during the three amazing days. You can apply to volunteer today, but if you are still thinking about it – read what our past WCEU volunteers told us about their experience during the event.
