Announcing Drupalcon Szeged 2008

Submitted by Kristof Van Tomme on Tue, 04/08/2008 - 09:05.

This next Drupalcon, we're transforming the small town of Szeged, Hungary into Drupaltown!

The Drupal Association is pleased to announce that the next Drupalcon will be held in Szeged, Hungary from August 27 to 30, 2008 in the Library and Conference Center of the Szeged University. With a thousand Drupal enthusiasts expected we'll be turning this picturesque student city into a true Drupaltown!

Drupalcon has been a major success for the Drupal community, with every conference reaching out to more and more people. Like Boston, Drupalcon Szeged will again provide ample opportunities both for business people, developers, themers, designers, and users in the community: there will be a code sprint, plenty of space for BOF sessions, a job fair and, of course, plenty of opportunity for networking. Start planning, buy your tickets earlier and be prepared to meet your Drupal community in Szeged, Hungary; Drupaltown!

Some of the new things at this Drupalcon will be:

  • Accommodation service. We are organizing this conference in collaboration with C&T, a local event organizer. As part of the registration process they will help you find accommodation - near the action - that fits your needs.
  • Any budget. We have already reserved the city's finest hotels as well as the local hostels. There are accommodations to meet everyone's budget.
  • Central European talent. Drupal is big in Central Europe. This Drupalcon will let you meet developers, designers and other upcoming talent from the region. It will also be an excellent opportunity to make first contact with some of the local, as well as foreign companies that provide consulting, design, development, or outsourcing talent. We will have an exhibition area with focused one day exhibitions as well as a partnering system to help you find the right people and schedule meetings.

The Drupalcon Szeged 2008 team is working hard to finalize conference details before opening registration and the session proposal system. We will also soon announce the sponsorship packages.
