DrupalCon DC was announced today on Drupal.org. We’ve known it for a while, to be honest, but now it’s official! DrupalCon DC will be held March 4-7, 2009 and registration will be opening next week.

The importance of DrupalCon DC is hard to overestimate. Washington, DC is home to many non-profits and PR Agencies, the most active users of Drupal, to date. It’s also right next to Virginia’s tech hub - the largest tech “settlement” on the East coast. And, being on the east coast, it’s also a shorter flight for European Drupallers.

Local firms like Phase2 Technology and DevelopmentSeed have put a lot of effort into making Drupalcon DC a reality, but winning the bid and the announcement is just a start. There will be a lot more tasks to do to make DrupalCon DC the largest and the best DrupalCon. We hope that you will join our efforts.

Sponsorship slots are still available and there are numerous other ways to get involved, as well. Please stay tuned while the official conference site is being born or e-mail

with any questions you may have.
