We’re quite proud of it. But have to warn you about last-minute changes. We try to keep everything up to date, so pls check:
On Sunday we’ll have workshops and come check out what contributing’s all about at the Contribution Track.
Check out Expert City (our a-little-different happiness bar) & the tourist track (for all +1’s or extra Antwerp-days).
Wi-Fi & Social media
We’ll be able to use the Wi-Fi of Karel de Grote Hogeschool, details will be posted througout the venue. Please be gentle: turn off your dropbox & other syncs.

Antwerp is the second biggest city of Belgium. But actually it’s quite compact: within a 30-minute walk, you can reach almost every fine quarter of the city.
Use the WordCamp as an excuse to book a weekend & bring your +1 (and even kids?) with you. During the WordCamp hours they can explore the city and every attendee can bring a +1 to the after drink. Or buy a second ticket and the venue is open for both of you: €30 for food & coffee.
Check visitantwerpen.be for all the tourist information you need or read on for intel from the WCA Tourist Team.

Would it be too low level for me, or too high level? Am I forced to ‘network’? In hindsight: blahblah. Continue reading “Why should you attend a WordCamp?”
Tickets cost as little as €30. This is huge money if you count in French (ahum, Belgian) Fries, but in other stuff: no excuse not to go!
A ticket gives you access to the whole conference: two days, all activities including the workshops on sunday (though the workshops might be limited in space).
So, what are you waiting for? Get your ticket now! 😉
