We are happy to announce that Belgrade, Serbia, will host WordCamp Europe 2018. The capital of Serbia, Belgrade, is an old city in the centre of the Balkans with fantastic food, culture, nightlife, and most importantly – an incredible WordPress community.
The deadline for teams who would like to apply to host WordCamp Europe 2018 is now extended to March 15th. We would like to invite all teams who have organised a WordCamp in Europe in the past year to consider hosting WordCamp Europe in their city next year.
WordCamp Europe strives to make new connections, cross borders and strengthen one of the most diverse and vibrant WordPress communities in the world. The transparent application process for hosting WordCamp Europe is a part of that effort.
Hosting WordCamp Europe is a big responsibility. You get to join a global team of experienced organizers and bring all the knowledge and experience you have about your local community and city to that team. Local communities in the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Spain, Austria, and France have already faced that challenge and every year WordCamp Europe is bigger and better because of them.
In 2017 Paris will welcome the global WordPress community for the fifth WordCamp Europe. Following the idea of the original WordCamp Europe team to introduce a new community and a new exciting location to its attendees each year, Paris will be the host of the largest WordPress event to this day after Leiden in 2013, Sofia in 2014, Seville in 2015 and Vienna in 2016. The new location is part of the magic of WordCamp Europe, it’s what transforms it from a technical conference into a sometimes life altering adventure full of new friendships, opportunities and the excitement of exploring a new city with great people.
