WordCamp London needs a venue! Can you help?

Last year, WordCamp London was a huge success and we want to make this year even bigger and better. This means finding a bigger venue that can host two conference days. We’re working our way through venues in London, sending out requests for quotes, collating information, and trying to find a way to keep our costs as low as possible.

We’re committed to keeping the event as cheap for attendees, while still providing an amazing WordCamp experience. Venues in London are expensive, so we’re looking for a venue partner or sponsor who would be able to host our WordCamp for us. By hosting WordCamp London you’ll be supporting an amazing open source project, and we’re happy to discuss what we can do to show our thanks.

We’d like to hold the WordCamp over a weekend some time between August -> December 2014.

Who can help?

We need an venue space that can hold up to 600 people, across three rooms. You might be able to help us if you’re a:

  • University: universities can be perfect spaces because they can hold lots of people and have lots of bandwidth. It’s also a great opportunity for your students to learn about WordPress and meeting people in the WordPress community.
  • Adult Education Centre or College: again, this can be a great opportunity for students to learn about WordPress.
  • Tech company: if you’re a big tech company with a whole load of space, supporting a WordCamp is a great way to support the open source community
  • cinema, theatre, meeting house, community centre, mansion house, historic building, any other big space that can hold 600 people and their laptops!

We’d also be interested in speaking to anyone who thinking they can host the Contributor Day. For that we need a venue of around 150 people.

If you think you can help, we’d love to hear from you. Drop us an email.
