The dates and location for WordCamp Europe 2014 are now set. The event will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria on September 27–29. Sofia’s National Palace of Culture will host WordPress fans from around the world. This beautiful venue is one of the largest convention centers in Southeastern Europe, with eight floors and three underground levels.
In 2013, more than 700 attendees converged upon Leiden, the Netherlands for the event, which, by all accounts, was a smashing success. This massive undertaking was made possible by the efforts of a dedicated 50-person volunteer team.
The first WordCamp Europe inspired the European WordPress community and caused them to come together in new ways. Jenny Beaumont, an attendee we interviewed, remarked about how the event was transformative for the French WordPress community:
I really feel that something special happened at WordCamp Europe back in October, something that inspired a momentum that we’re all still riding on today. People are coming together, opening up and crossing divides.
