About WordCamp Bern 2017

We’re delighted that the next Swiss WordPress Conference is being held in Switzerland’s federal city!

Here in Switzerland, the regular WordCamps bring people together from all over: not just the French-, Italian- and German-speaking parts of the country, but from all over Europe. The central location of WordCamp Bern will bring everyone together in a UNESCO World Heritage city, to share and learn all about WordPress.

Speakers wanted

In order to make the conference useful to as wide a range of attendees as possible, it will be primarily held in English. However, speakers with ideas for talks in German or French are also most welcome. Do you have an idea for a talk? Check out the Call for Speakers page.
