Are you ready for 2017?

Thank you all for coming to WordCamp Singapore 2016.

We started off with small goals and lots of worries on our side. WordPress was not huge in Singapore and the progressive nature of our society made it really daunting to attempt to run a conference with an almost entirely sponsored budget.

2 years ago, after we had restarted the WordPress Singapore community from the then inactive WordPress User Group Singapore, we started talking about WordCamp Singapore.

The fact that it happened is still sinking in. But we know that we enjoyed every single moment with every single person that attended.

This time, we had speakers, attendees, sponsors and volunteers from Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Australia, Russia, China, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Philippines, United Kingdom, Poland,  and went from an initial projected 100 attendees to a whooping 230.

Planning for WordCamp Singapore 2017 has already started but before we are able to do anything really meaningful – we need your help to give us some feedback for this year’s WordCamp. You can do so at the Google Form here.

Lastly, if you have taken any photos and you would like to share, please drop us a link to a storage or let us know of alternatives method via singapore-at-wordcamp-dot-org.

Getting there

Venue: 1 Marina Boulevard, NTUC Centre, 018989

Via MRT: Get off at Raffles Place Mrt (Green & Red Line) and use our handy guide to navigate the underpass

Taxi: Just use Grab or Uber, take note that the early morning is peak hours so grab your ride early.

Car: If you’re driving, take note that NTUC Centre’s parking charges are $2.20 per hour. If you’re coming via Fullerton / Collyer Quay, you only have one chance to turn into the building which can be easily missed. The next U-Turn is pretty far away and requires you to make 2 U-Turns to get back on track. Consider parking at nearby buildings such as The Sail which offers similar parking charges if you miss the turn-in.

After-party

6 Sep (Conference Day) 8pm – 11pm
Appetisers, beers, wine and soda will be provided. All food is cooked by a halal kitchen.

The bar is a 2-storey building and we have exclusive use of it. Join us for a casual evening. We recommend you to have a light dinner first.
