WordCamp Portsmouth UK 2011

Portsmouth is going to be the venue for the next gathering of WordPress publishers, designers and developers based in the United Kingdom.

The gathering will be the follow-up to WordCamp UK 2010.

The decision was taken by the WordCamp UK mailing list following the venue bidding process.

The winning bid, proposed by Rich Boakes, is for the event to be held at University of Portsmouth on the weekend of 16-17 July 2011.

The runner-up bid was by John Read for Buckinghamshire New University.

The mailing list took a survey on the bids, and only one vote seperated the result – an indication of the excellance of both proposals.

I’m happy to be once again coordinating the organisation of the event – you can find out more at the WordCamp UK wiki.

    Well I didn’t even know of the bidding process but I’m glad as a southerner / Londoner that it’s in Portsmouth. it’s much easier to get to.
