but because of the organisational genius of WordCamp organisers, according to organiser Petya Raykovska:
The huge interest is a testament about the quality we’ve been able to provide in previous years, establishing WordCamp Europe as a can’t-miss event for anyone running or involved with a WordPress business.
No Petra, it’s because WordCamp Europe is in Vienna at the crossroads of Western and Eastern Europe, right bang in the center of everywhere. Plus everyone likes Vienna.
The hubris of the official WordCamp community is becoming astonishing. Perhaps Ms. Raykovska should have booked a bigger venue in the first place. There’s a wide choice of venues in conference city Vienna.
