WordPint WCEU 2017 – Thank you for coming!
by: Benoit Gütz
At Savvii we visit a lot of WordCamps each year. We are at these WordCamps as attendee, sponsor and/or organizer. The event we look most forward to every year is WordCamp Europe! The biggest, most international and surprising event. This year, we really wanted to give something back to the community. If you ask a WordCamp attendee what WordCamps are about, they will tell you about learning and sharing knowledge but above all about meeting old friends and making new ones.
What better way is there to talk to friends than at a gathering in the romantic heart of Paris, with a cold beer in your hand? Our thoughts exactly! That is why we organized the WordPint event. Savvii sponsored the first 150 drinks and made sure all attendees where eligible for happy-hour prices for the whole night.
Friday 16 June we gathered at Irish Pub Corcoran’s on the steps near the Sacré-Coeur with a large group of WCEU attendees. Due to the nice weather it was a pleasant evening for outdoor socializing. We made 100 tickets available for the event but a few hours before the kick-off they were all gone. We quickly sent some messages to make sure everybody was welcome, regardless of tickets. More than 100 people from all over Europe showed up at the party. Plenty of people to have very interesting conversations and make new friends! A cold beer, live music, nice weather and a beautiful spot go a long way, but without attendees you party is nothing. We are very happy so many people showed up and we want to thank you all!
