Ciao Roma! WhereCamp EU Is Heading To The Eternal City

The waiting is over. WhereCamp EU is visiting another European city for 2013 and this time we’re going to be in Rome. That’s Roma, Italia by the way, not the station on the Paris Métro and not one of the 16 places in the United States called Rome either.


Here’s the details you need to know …


January 18th and 19th 2013.


Porta Futuro, Via Galvani 108, 00153, Roma

More To Come

WhereCamp Is Coming Back To Berlin

You can’t keep a good WhereCamp down it seems. Not content with hosting WhereCamp EU in 2011, Berlin is hosting it’s own WhereCamp, appropriately named WhereCamp Berlin.

Those of you who were in Berlin for last year’s WhereCamp EU will know that Berlin is an ideal city for a WhereCamp, offering the perfect combination of scenery, location nerds and some rather fine German beer.

If you’re interested in more details, head on over to the WhereCamp Berlin site, and for those of you who don’t speak that much German (and that includes myself) the event and the website is in English. WhereCamp Berlin kicks off on Friday June 22nd. 2012 at the campus of Beuth University.

So Berlin, have a great WhereCamp and if you’re visiting, don’t forget an Ampelmann souvenir to remind you of your WhereCamp-ing. As they say in Berlin, WhereCamp kommt zurück nach Berlin (WhereCamp is coming back to Berlin).

Esri Join Us in Amsterdam

The variety of organisations helping us put on WhereCampEU is getting bigger and bigger. We are very happy to say that Esri, another long time supporter is back again and sponsoring WhereCampEU 2012:

“WhereCampEU is where all of Europe’s community of geo, GIS and location enthusiasts gather in a collaborative environment. Esri are proud to help this event and it’s attendees come together in Amsterdam, and we hope to see, learn, and participate in all the great sessions over the weekend.”

There we go: our final list of whereCampEU sponsors!

Although whereCampEU is very much unconferenced, we still need the support of others to pay for the rooms and lunches! So a big thank you to those who are making this whereCampEU possible.

Why do they sponsor? Says Peter Miller from ITO World: “ITO World are thrilled to be sponsoring WhereCampEU again and look forward to many stimulating presentations and conversation over the weekend. See you there!”

From the other blogposts you notice there is a mix of reasons to support us. Now it is all up to whereCampers to make this event a success!
