WordCamp London Practical Information

Just one week until WordCamp London and we are getting pretty excited. We hope that you are too! We’ve got lots of fun in store for you, with three days packed full of WordPress. This post has all of the information that you need ahead of the event, so please read it (you’ll also find it in your email inbox). If you do have any questions for us, send us an email at london@wordcamp.org

Contributor Day

If you have signed up for the contributor day, you’ll be receiving and email to confirm your attendance and with all of the finer details. The contributor day will take place at the Graduate Centre. This the building after the main London Met entrance on Holloway Road. Registration starts at 09:30 and the event finishes at 17:00.

Registration

Registration on Saturday 21st starts at 8am and will take place at The Rocket Complex on Holloway Road. We’ve got around 600 attendees so it’d help us out if you could get through registration quickly. There will be coffee, tea and morning pastries, and plenty of places where you can hang out before the talks get started.

Access Requests

London Met University is fully accessible but if you do have any specific access requests please let us know in advance. You can email us at london@wordcamp.org. If there’s anything you need throughout the day, grab one of our volunteers, who’ll be wearing bright pink t-shirts.

Getting Around

The easiest way to access the three areas where the conference takes place (the Rocket Complex, the Graduate Centre, and the Henry Thomas Room) is via Holloway Road. Each of the spaces has direct access onto Holloway Road. There is a map on your name badge. The University itself is something of a warren. If you find yourself getting lost, as one of our volunteers where to go.

Catering

We have done our best to cater to all dietary requirements. If you have very specific dietary requirements (if you’ve requested gluten free -and- lactose free -and- vegetarian, for example), please grab one of our volunteers at lunch time so that they can ensure you get what you ordered. Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free, and Lactose Free diets will be easily available and properly labelled.

Volunteers

Our volunteers will be dressed in gorgeous pink t-shirts. If you need any help, just grab one of them and they’ll do their best to help you out.

After-party

The after-party will take place in the Rocket Complex, and kicks off straight after the end of the conference. A full bar is available, and we’re making plans for some fun activities for you to enjoy. We’ll be providing a full dinner with a selection of that English classic: pies, mash, and lots of sides (all of the dietary requirements that you requested when you bought your tickets will be provided). Dinner will be served upstairs at the Rocket between 7:30pm and 9:00pm.

Please keep your name badge with you at all times. If you decide to leave the building you’ll need it to get back in.

The party will end at midnight.

Code of Conduct

We have a Code of Conduct to ensure that WordCamp London is a safe and welcoming environment for every attendee. If you experience anyone breaking the code of conduct, or see anyone doing so, please tell one of our volunteers.

Big thanks to 1&1 and GoDaddy for being such fabulous WordCamp London sponsors!
