Final batch of tickets now on sale

It may have slipped by unnoticed, but last week we started selling the very final batch of tickets.

At the end of the last WordCamp Europe in Vienna, when we announced Paris as the next host city, we released the first batch of 2000 tickets. That first batch sold out at the end of January 2017 and we decided to release the second batch immediately after, along with 300 microsponsor tickets.

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

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.
