MODXpo 2017 will be hosted November 11th and 12th in Minsk, Belarus. The organizers have been working to provide updated info about the venue, schedule, tickets, speakers and some travel tips!
The MODXpo will be held at 210 METROV, where the hugely successful 2015 MODX Meetup was held. This year, the main room will be 200 square metres with separate rooms for workshops!
Day 1: Talks
The first day of MODXpo 2017 will be a full day of talks, presented by MODX community members including Greame Leighfield, Vasily Naumkin, Ivan Klimchuk and Gauke Pieter Sietzema. See the the full schedule. There are still some spots to fill, so please contact the organizers if you've got something up your sleeve!
Day 2: Workshops
The second day will be packed with workshops. Munich's MODXpo workshops were well received. We're sure these will be a hit in Minsk.
The ticket price has been set at 99BYN (see in EUR, USD and GPB). You'll get two days full of MODX goodness, including food throughout the day, a tour through Minsk and of course a goodie-bag. Also, expect most of the community heading to a bar together after each day to relax and enjoy some local drinks.

Getting to Minsk
A lot of Western European and US citizens haven't visited Belarus yet and might be hesitant to do so. Our MODX-friends from Sterc have traveled the whole continent for MODX Meetups—including Kazakhstan and Belarus.
Sterc's Gauke Pieter has this to say about their trip to Belarus:
"Traveling to Minsk was as easy as traveling to Munich: flying from Amsterdam with a decent airplane, landing on a really neat airport and traveling to our Minsk city center Hotel was a breeze.
The taxis we used all had WiFi, which was really useful. If you don't like taxis: there's a very good subway. The hotel had high standards and beautiful big rooms. The best part: the people from Belarus are very kind and helpful."
The MODXpo Minsk website will be updated with options for your hotel of choice. If you're in doubt, just contact us.
See you in Minsk!
