We are organizing the biggest Drupal event in Europe in 2018 with a group of community volunteers in collaboration with the Drupal eV (German Drupal Association) and the Drupal Europe Foundation. We’d like to update you on our progress and turn to you for input.
Mark your calendars for September 10–14, 2018 when Drupal Europe will be held in the beautiful Darmstadtium in Darmstadt, Germany. This is a great venue for the conference and only a 20 minutes’ drive from Frankfurt Airport. We just had our second walkthrough last week discussing details with the venue and were impressed.

A new logo
Thanks to all designers we worked with who came up with such great ideas for our branding! We are delighted to release our final logo proudly crafted by sixeleven. Drupal Europe stickers (pictured here) will be available at various Drupal events where our team shows up in the coming months.
Latest on the conference schedule
We are continually looking at how to structure the biggest Drupal event in Europe, and based on exploratory discussions with community members, we believe we are on the right track.
First of all we strongly believe contribution is at the heart of the Drupal project. Figures show that over 44% of Drupal contributors are in Europe. Therefore, in our programme we want to give you more time to contribute by making both Monday and Friday contribution days (formerly called sprints). Mentors will be available on both days to help those new to Drupal contribution.
We are structuring the rest of the event between Tuesday and Thursday on the successful summit model that has worked well at the start of DrupalCons and other regional events. Topics will include government, education, publishing, technology, and community. We are looking for sponsors for each to make possible to put them on.
And the great news is that your single Drupal Europe ticket will give you access to all these workshops, panels and discussions.
We want to hear from you
Although we have plenty of ideas, we realize that this is your conference.
Please help us understand you, our audience, better by completing our survey. It should only take 8 minutes or so and still give us lots of valuable insight. While not all questions are mandatory, we added a few open questions to get to know you better.
Thank you, and please share our survey with all your Drupal friends and colleagues to help us make Drupal Europe a success.
See you in September!
