The first batch of tickets for WordCamp Europe 2019 were released early this morning and all 250 standard tickets sold out within three hours and nine minutes. Berlin won out as the next city to host the camp, in part due to the region’s strong local WordPress community. The city is international, diverse, and easily accessible for those traveling for the conference.
WCEU 2019 will be held at the Estrel Hotel and Congress Center from June 20-22. It is a large venue with a max capacity of 12,000 people, capable of hosting both conference days, the contributor day, and the after party. Local lead organizer Bernhard Kau said his team is currently planning for 2,500 – 3,000 attendees. A discount is available for those who want to stay at the Estrel Hotel.
The past six editions of WCEU have been so successful that it is now firmly established as a can’t-miss event in the WordPress world. Although the first set of standard tickets have already sold out in record time, a few dozen Micro-sponsor tickets are still available for €150.00. More standard tickets will be available on Wednesday, October 3rd.

Great location! One of my favorite cities. Looks like I need to decide quick if I’m going, it might sell out!
