About HostCamp

HostCamp is a small invitation-only event for leaders and decision makers in WordPress hosting to come together outside the context of typical gatherings, share insights and perspective, and work together to advance the state of WordPress infrastructure across the Open Web.

HostCamp is a participant-driven event. Each topic has an expert facilitator to set the stage and kick-start discussions. Participants ask questions, share experiences, and take the topic where they’d like to see it go.

As a participant, you have a strategic and tactical track available to you. The strategic track focuses on high-level topics and will tend to be future-looking whereas the tactical focuses on details and work you can do now.

HostCamp 1.0 will take place at Betahaus in Berlin, a fantastic venue for those who want to exchange knowledge and inspiration. Built as a co-working space and designed especially for events like these, Betahaus is the right mixture between a (un)conference venue and a networking spot, with generous rooms for presentations, a coffee shop and a terrace for relaxing.
