WordCamp Asia has announced its dates for 2024. The flagship event is now officially scheduled for March 7-9, in Taipei, Taiwan. Organizers have secured the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC) venue to host the event, which is located in the business district not far from Taipei 101, formerly known as the Taipei World Financial Center, a skyscraper that is the city’s most visible landmark. TICC has a capacity of more than 3,000 people.
“The local community is massive and I’ve been told that WordCamp Taiwan (this October) alone would boast of at least 500 attendees,” organizer John Ang said after visiting Taipei with his team to sign the venue. “While we were on the same trip, we were lucky to be able to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of WordPress with the Taiwanese community.
“There’s also active work bringing in government support and other open source communities across the region (e.g. Hong Kong) to WordCamp Asia next year.”
WordCamp Asia attendees can expect 3-5 tracks of sessions featuring diverse presentations across a range of topics for beginners and seasoned WordPress professionals alike. The venue also offers ample common areas for networking.
More details on the event and calls for speakers and sponsors should be coming soon. Those who are hopeful to attend can subscribe to updates on the event’s website or follow @WordCampAsia on Twitter.
