We traveled to our state capital of Mumbai for a WordCamp over the last weekend of March. Through the years, WCMumbai has been the source of some of our fondest memories.
The vibrant and active WordPress community in Mumbai attracted some of the most enthusiastic attendees. The networking areas were buzzing with conversation at every break.
One of the most striking things about this WordCamp was the diversity; attendees included students, entrepreneurs and freelancers from various disciplines. We enjoyed interacting with other WordPressers as much as we enjoyed the sessions across the two days.
Another genuinely noteworthy achievement was the ticket prices. The organizers managed to greatly subsidize the ticket prices to the point where most tickets could be purchased for ₹250! That included entry, swag, two days’ worth of meals, and full access to all the sessions. The ticket prices surely contributed to the level of inclusivity at the event.
Overall, the WordCamp was well organized- no major delays, the crowd was managed well and the venue was spacious. Even the projector didn’t have any issues 😉
We are glad to see the hard work of the WCMumbai organizing team pay off. Our congratulations to the organizers, volunteers, speakers and attendees for being a part of the largest WordCamp in Indian history.

Unlike most other WordCamps, WCMumbai is a single track, two day event. This gave us ample time to hang out and travel around the city of Mumbai. Here are some of our experiences:
