We are pleased to announce that the next large gathering of Drupalers will be held in Sydney, Australia from May 18th – 22nd 2008 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Center Darling Harbor in conjunction with the Open CeBIT expo and conference.
The Drupal Asia Pacific Conference is a major event to gather Drupalers to learn, discuss and advance Drupal. It is also a great opportunity to network with other community members that operate in the Asia Pacific region and who may not be able to attend community events on the other side of the world.
The conference will feature dual tracks over 3 days and a single theatre over a day and half that will also be open to the broader Open CeBIT audience. We are partnering with the Joomla community to host a website building contest which will be prominently highlighted at the OpenCeBIT Conference. All attendees will be provided free entry to the CeBIT expo (20th – 22nd) and offered discounted tickets to the Open CeBIT conference. We will also be hosting a booth as part of the CeBIT Exhibition to educate and promote Drupal to businesses, government, and individual attendees of the exhibition.
The Sydney 2008 Team is working hard to finalize conference details before opening registration and the session proposal system. We are also just now finalizing sponsorship packages. Watch http://drupalapc.org and the Drupal.org home page (rss feed) for future announcements. In the mean time, start making your travel arrangements and gathering your session proposal information. If you’re interested in forming part of the Drupal team for the website contest, please contact us.
