5 reasons why you should visit #WCBGD 2016

In case, you haven’t decided yet if you are going. We thought we make it easier for you. Below are five reasons why you should go.

1. Last year’s event was fantastic

We are biased for sure, but we do believe that we had a great mix to make the WordCamp successful as it was. With ten great speakers on Saturday, more speakers on Sunday making it complete. Also, the venue with a their-their bar was an amazing value where people could still see the talks but still able to speak with each other. This year will be different, but we strive to succeed last year’s edition.

2. It’s bigger than the first #WCBGD

This year we will have more speakers and more attendees than last year. Let us sound like an Apple commercial and say that is two times the attendees, two times more speaker tracks and two times more speakers 🙂

3. It’s in Belgrade, Serbia

Belgrade is the capital of the southeast European country of Serbia. Its most significant landmark is beogradska tvrđava Kalemegdan, an imposing fortress at the confluence of the Danube and the Sava rivers. A testament to the city’s strategic importance to the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Serbian and Austrian empires, the fortress is now the site of several museums and Kalemegdan a vast park.

4. The Serbian Cuisine

The national dishes include pljeskavica (a ground beef/pork patty), ćevapi (grilled minced meat), and Karađorđeva šnicla (Karađorđe’s steak). The national drink is the plum brandy šljivovica or Homemade rakija. Last year at the WordCamp we provided some of the best food Serbia has to offer.

5. The People

The people are friendly, and it’s always good to connect with each other. The fact is, we’re better together, in a community, and WordPress is an amazing community.
