So here’s our post-WCEU roundup – WordCamp Europe 2016 by the numbers:
This year’s WordCamp Europe had 2131 attendees, from 68 countries

Among those 2131 attendees, there were 130 volunteers, from 33 countries. Including nearly the whole ThemeIsle team. 🙂
We had 20 awesome organizers
There were 39 sponsors

There are 1,300 official photos from the event
… all posted on the official WordCamp Flickr account. The photos were taken by 14 volunteer photographers.
The number of unofficial galleries? We can only guess … a zillion? 🙂
