Drupal community

DrupalCon Europe is taking a break, but it was loud and clear that the European Drupal community needs an opportunity to meet, connect and share. Because of this, we decided to organize Drupal Europe in its place with an enthusiastic group of international volunteers in collaboration with the German Drupal Association.

We are hosting Drupal Europe September 10-14, 2018 in the beautiful new Darmstadtium in Darmstadt, Germany, only 20 minutes drive from Frankfurt Airport.

The website, conference schedule and sponsor packages are in the works. Some things that did not work well at DrupalCon will change, while we try to keep our favourite traditions. Reach out to hello@drupaleurope.org to get involved. We are super excited!


Our aim is to organize a sustainable and affordable event where people from the European (and global) Drupal community can collaborate together on tackling challenges and engage in order to make Drupal grow both as a technology and as a brand.

Our core values

  • Engage
  • Challenge
  • Grow
  • Collaborate
  • Community
  • Sustainability

What’s next?

  • Define sponsor benefits and packages
  • Decide how to handle talk/session proposal and selection process
  • Marketing and Promotion — in the community and outside
  • Volunteer management — can some tasks be crowdsourced?
  • Create an event website — we are still looking for some design help here!
