There are around 400 tickets remaining for WordCamp Europe 2017 and we are starting our final preparation for the event, which is now less than a month away. Preparing for a number of attendees that we’ve never seen before, we are announcing that May 31st will be the end date for regular ticket sales.
We are less than a month away from WordCamp Europe Contributor Day. We hope you have already bought your ticket to WordCamp Europe and registered to attend Contributor Day (around 50 spots left as of today!). As promised, we are releasing the schedule of all the talks (four of them), workshops (13 of them), and all of the contributor teams.

We are happy to announce our final speaker, a dear guest and a good friend to WordCamp Europe – Matt Mullenweg, co-founder of WordPress. During his session on Saturday starting at 3 pm, Matt will be interviewed by Om Malik, founder of Gigaom. After the 30 minute interview, we will have 20 minutes for Q&A. With this final announcement, we are also happy to release the full speaker schedule for the upcoming WordCamp Europe 2017.
Please give a warm welcome to our eighth group of speakers: Boon Gorges, Andrea Middleton, Petya Raykovska, Caspar Hübinger, Jenny Wong, and Monique Dubbelman! They’ll be sharing tales of community, discussing the power that language holds, and talking about the art of communication.
For years, WordCamp Europe has been too big for smaller companies to act as sponsors. With sponsor packages growing each year—to accommodate a better programme for more people—we tried to find a solution for more companies to get involved as our community sponsors. We wanted to give visibility to small businesses, who we feel are the backbone of the WordPress ecosystem.
If you are a company that works with WordPress (and generates a majority of your income from it), and you had a revenue less than 1 million euros in 2016, you are eligible for our small business sponsorship. Take this opportunity to get “one on one” with your audience. Continue reading Sponsor WordCamp Europe as small business
This week is one of the busiest leading to WordCamp Europe. As of today, we have sold 2100 tickets and this week we’ll release the rest of the reserved tickets to bring us to the magical number of 3000 attendees. But not only that – you often asked us “when will you publish the schedule?” Well, your wait is (almost) over. We’re happy to say that the final schedule will be announced this week – as soon as we finish rolling out speaker announcements.
We’re proud to present our next group of technical talks to you. Please, extend our welcome to K. Adam White, Alain Schlesser, Ivelina Dimova, Dwayne McDaniel, and Andrew Nacin. They will cover development topics ranging from REST API to development best practices and tricks.
This is the digital age. There are times when we all need a cosy place to work while we are travelling. It is not an easy task when you don’t know so much about the place you are visiting. Maybe you will need to find such places while attending the WordCamp Europe. Paris, as any other city, have numerous coworking spaces where you can rent un chouette coin (a sweet spot). So to get you covered, we have selected 6 coworking spaces for you and dealt discounted prices for WordCamp Europe attendees. You can show up in any of them, show your WCEU ticket and get a 20% discount. Continue reading Coworking Spaces Selection
Our sixth group of speakers are Sarah Semark, Dmitry Mayorov, Michael Arestad, John Maeda and Morten Rand-Hendriksen; and they will talk (among other things) about design topics. Please welcome them!
WordCamps are one of the most inclusive web-oriented conferences out there, affordable to thousands of people around the world. And WordCamp Europe is no exception. Each year we try to raise this bar higher, by creating a welcoming experience for everyone. Last year we provided childcare for every parent attending WCEU, and we are doing so this year too. Parents, get ready to rock the conference while your children have the fun they deserve in our dedicated childcare areas. Continue reading Childcare at WordCamp Europe
