Leiden is a picturesque town on the outskirts of Amsterdam. Only 20 minutes from Amsterdam Schiphol airport by train, we felt it to be the perfect location for the first WordCamp Europe. If you need to take a break from the WordPress chit-chat you can walk along stunning canals, visit museums to see paintings by Rembrandt and Steen, or while away a few hours in one of the town’s many bars and coffee shops.
The conference will take place in the beautiful Stadsgehoorzaal Leiden, a Neo-classical building that dates back to 1891. This stunning building shows off European architecture at its best, while being high-tech enough to provide a wi-fi connection for all attendees.
With everything confirmed, all you need to do is watch this space for information about speakers, tickets, sponsorship, and the all-important WordCamp afterparty!
