Counting Down To WCEU: Looking At Paris From Above

Next June, WordCamp Europe will be held in Paris. Thousands of WordPress fans will gather to share and contribute to what is currently one of the biggest open source projects. As you may know, each edition of the WordCamp Europe is held in a different city. We think it is a great way to enlighten the European communities diversity. This year, we thought that it would be a good idea to bring out the host city more than we did the previous years so that attendees can take the most out of their travel.

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.

Reach thousands of WordPress professionals and influencers by becoming a sponsor of the largest official WordPress event in the world.

This year we are expecting over 3,000 attendees, so don’t miss the opportunity to be represented at WordCamp Europe 2017. Most sponsorship spots fill up in the first 48 hours, so get your applications in, as it’s on a first come first served basis.

This year we’re taking a slightly different approach to speaker selection. As usual, we have a team of people who are managing speakers. This team will be reviewing all applications and we’ll be putting together the final schedule.

However, we’re enlisting some help: WordCamp Europe is an event for the WordPress community, so we’re inviting teams of community representatives to help us review the applications. Speaker selection panels will be asked to review different categories. We’ll have panels for Development, Design, Business, and Community. We also have an “Other” category for those that doesn’t fit neatly into the other categories.
