More than 30% of the websites you visit on a daily basis are built with the WordPress open source software, a platform the usage of which is rising constantly, especially in Greece. This is the reason why we organize WordCamp Thessaloniki 2018, a conference about but not exclusive to WordPress.
Be among the WordPress fellowship and carry our precious ring of glory: #WCThess2018
WordCamps hold discussions on various topics: Startups, e-Commerce, and Βlogging are just some of the topics covered at conferences like the one getting prepared at the moment.
Globally, WordCamps are supported by the WordPress Foundation—the official nonprofit organization the purpose of which is the preservation of the openness of WordPress—and this conference is approved and recognized by the Foundation.
A WordCamp is for anyone that works with WordPress, at any level of experience and knowledge, but not only. The conference is addressed to any internet user interested in getting informed on the news around WordPress, including but not limited to:
- Web Developers,
- Web Designers,
- Content Editors,
- Web Editors,
- Social Media Managers
- and many more fields of expertise or professionals.

Who organizes the conference
WordCamp Thessaloniki 2018 is organized by volunteers, members of the WordPress Greek Community. In particular, 15 members of the community (who you can see in more detail here), have shared the responsibilities and work to give life to the conference for the third year in a row, after two successful WordCamps in Athens.
Are you Curious What is Behind the Curtains?
How it is financed
As mentioned earlier, the WordPress Foundation is the valuable partner and supporter of our efforts. While a big part of WordCamp Thessaloniki 2018 is financed by Foundation’s global sponsors and supporters, we also have the ability to seek out local sponsorships, monetary or providing a service, by companies active in Greece.
For that purpose, there are 5 sponsor packages available to anyone interested to pick one up and support the conference. Of course, these packages include a varying set of benefits.
How can I attend
The ticket to attend the conference for both days, including meals and coffee breaks, has a small price and you can purchase it here.
WordCamp Thessaloniki 2018 will be hosted at Thessaloniki Concert Hall and more specifically in the M2 building and Maurice Saltiel Hall on the 5th floor, while coffee breaks and lunch break will take place in the foyer and the impressive café-restaurant Allegro at the same floor.
Designed by the famous architect Arata Isozaki, the M2 building gives the city a unique structure that summarizes the virtues of modern architecture. Geometric lines, large glass surfaces, and metallic elements make up a picture of imposing simplicity, contrasting but standing equally next to the neighboring M1 building.
Thessaloniki Concert Hall is located at the junction of 25th March with the beach, right next to Posidonio Athletic Center.
Individuals with special needs can have an easy access inside and outside both venues of the Thessaloniki Concert Hall.
Access: You can reach the Concert Hall from all the neighborhoods of Thessaloniki with the Public Transport.
Bus: The Megaron is located 100 meters from the «March» stop, from which the buses 5 / 6 / 8 / 33 pass, while about 200 meters away, the 30 / 78 busses pass from the «Georgiou» stop. www.oasth.gr
Taxi: There is a Taxi stop in front of the Concert Hall entrance, where there are always taxis at the end of the performances.
Parking: The underground parking of the Megaron Music, located in the M2 building, is 11,800 m² in size and 230 seats. Parking will be available free of charge to all attendees on the day of the conference.
