Not so long ago we heard the magic words that illuminate the closing of every WordCamp event: next year's host city is... Last year in Berlin, many were overjoyed to hear that in 2020 it will be Porto that will host the WordCamp Europe 2020, June 4-6.
Although there is still time for WCEU 2020, the momentum is already underway. Speakers and sponsors are invited, as usual, to be heard, seen and appreciated as they contribute their knowledge and resources during the event.

Meet the Visual Composer Team at WCEU 2020
Visual Composer team is a bunch of developers, designers, and creative souls who love to meet alike. Like almost every WordCamp, Porto is marked on our calendars as a "we will be there" event. So we are really looking forward to meeting you all in one of the most beautiful cities in the world - Porto.
If you haven't decided yet, know that WordCamp is more than just a three-day conference. It's new encounters, new impressions, ideas, and inspiration. It means new partnerships, new projects and new expectations for the next WordCamp gathering.
For example, WordCamp Berlin last year inspired us to make our own game: Wapuu Trivia dedicated to the mascot of WordPress.
In addition to the fun part, we met the authors of popular WordPress plugins that led us to new partnerships and allowed us to create new compatibilities for Visual Composer.
For example, Visual Composer compatibility elements with WP Event Manager and TranslatePress plugins are the fruit of WCEU Berlin. We met the authors of these plugins at the event and formed a great partnership.
Here you can check all the Visual Composer integrations and compatibility elements.
So if you are in the WordPress realm, you know that it is worth it to get out of your routine and visit WordCamp. Your benefit will be the benefit of the entire WordPress community and vice versa.
