In 2019, over 36,000 WordPress enthusiasts came together at 142 different WordCamps to spend a day or three talking about WordPress, the free and open-source software that now powers 35% of the web!
WordCamps were held in 49 different countries in 2019, with events in 6 continents: Africa, Asia, Australia/Oceania, Europe, North America, and South America.
As you can see in the chart below, the number of WordCamps stayed at the same level that was reached in 2018 but number of people involved have steadily increased!
Total Registered Attendees
Notes on this report:
Data was gathered using reporting tools. Numbers before 2018 may vary slightly from past years (which were gathered manually).
We are reporting on “total sessions”, rather than “unique sessions”. This is because determining unique sessions is subjective and therefore difficult to track.
