Umbraco Spark 2024 - SOLD OUT!

  • Posted: Tuesday, 6 February 2024

Umbraco Spark will be back on Friday 8th March 2024 at the M Shed in Bristol. With the resounding success of the past three editions, it's gearing up to be the ultimate rendezvous for every dedicated Umbraco developer. Our conference is where innovation meets expertise, and where the future of this dynamic platform is revealed and needs to be on every Umbraco developer’s radar.

This year has been our most popular Spark to date, with just over 160 attendees, we've just sold out, earlier than ever before and we already have a long waiting list for those who didn't get there quickly enough so it just goes to show next year, make sure you get your ticket early!

We had over 40 talk submissions which is amazing, huge thanks to everyone who submitted, even if someone did wait until 2 mins before the deadline to submit!

The 2024 Umbraco Spark event will feature a lineup of expert speakers sharing their knowledge and experience on the latest trends and innovations using Umbraco. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from Umbraco HQ as well as key developers and MVPs from the wider Umbraco community.
