H5P Conference 2017

Dear community member,

We are hosting the first ever H5P Conference this September.
The H5P community is growing and in the spirit of H5P, we would like to introduce an arena to inspire, share and build knowledge. We'll also spend a lot of time shaping the future of H5P.

When talented and enthusiastic people are gathered in one place, the opportunity for innovation is immense. There is a huge potential for a cross-pollination of ideas and the sharing of business opportunities among people from all countries and all kinds of organizations. 

Another goal of the conference is to provide top of the range training for both content creators and developers. Whether you're new to H5P and want an intensive introduction or you're an early adopter looking to learn how to use the latest features, we will have training sessions for participants at every level, taught by the very people who built H5P.

We are hosting the first H5P Con in Tromsø, Norway, the hometown of the current H5P Core Team.

The city centre is quite small, all hotels located at the centre of Tromsø will be at a walking distance from the conference arena. Scandic Ishavshotel might be Tromsø's best hotell if you plan to eat at the hotel, Comfort Hotel Xpress Tromsø and Smart Hotel are good budget options.
