Umbraco Sweden Festival

 We are back with a new and improved version of Umbraco Sweden Festival
and it takes place on the 16th of November in Gothenburg, Sweden.

A day of networking and knowledge

Last year's festival was a hit! This year it’s going to be even bigger and better with fourteen different speakers, great venues, networking opportunities, good food, drinks and parties.

We wanted this year’s edition of the Umbraco Sweden Festival to contain something for everyone, so we included a business track with lectures about e-commerce management and building brands, amongst other exciting things.

Just like last year the festival will offer a lot of high quality tech talk on the latest Umbraco news, and like at any Umbraco event a lot of interesting people will get together and mingle. This will be a perfect day to network and gather new knowledge!

Where it all happens

To start the festival off we will host a pre-party at Webmind HQ on the 15th of November. We will serve food and drinks at our office at Södra Gubberogatan 8 in Gothenburg, this is a perfect opportunity to get the networking started. Of course the pre-party is free for all festival visitors!

On the 16th we will start the day at Villa Johanneberg, a big old house with great tradition and a beautiful garden, located in the city center only a few minutes from Korsvägen - a junction for public transportation. We will have the venue all to ourselves and the old house is equipped with all the technology needed to get the most out of the presentations. It will be a day full of interesting lectures and people – you don’t want to miss it! 

The after-party will be held at John Scott’s, a pub on the famous Kungsportsavenyn. A buffet and drinks will be served at the venue's top floor terrace that is open exclusively for Umbraco Sweden Festival visitors. If anyone would want to mingle with people outside of the Umbraco community after dinner, the downstairs bar is open all night.
