The MODXpo is a annualy-ish international conference dedicated to MODX. These last few years have been a wild ride, so we're keeping it simple: 1 day with a single track of talks, plus plenty of time, space, and activities to help you meet and mingle safely.

The MODXpo is hybrid this year, hosted at the Van der Valk Hotel Arnhem, but also offering online tickets with a live stream and virtual venue.

The schedule covers a variety of topics, so bring your team! There will be showcases of new and interesting MODX extras, looking at recent PHP developments, discussions about running a MODX-powered agency, and more. We're very excited about the speaker line-up featuring well-known speakers and community experts, and will share the detailed timetable very soon (early June).

As a special treat, we're awarding the first ever Best MODX Website Award! Get your tickets before May 27th to enter 3 of your sites into the competition.

We're excited to finally see you again. Welcome back. 💙

Attend in-person

Nothing quite beats attending a conference like the MODXpo in-person. Aside from the all-inclusive ticket, you get the opportunity meet the amazing speakers and key contributors from the community.

Tickets are available for €129 (going up May 27th!), including 21% VAT, non-alcoholic drinks and snacks all day, an extensive lunch buffet , evening social , fair speaker compensation , one month excusive video access, but no wasteful goodie bags.

Ticket prices increase on May 27th and signup will close entirely on June 23rd—book early!

Attend online

If you can't make it, or are not yet comfortable attending a conference despite our COVID Policy, you can also experience the MODXpo from the comfort of your own home or office.

We've already heard of a couple local viewing parties being planned, which is amazing.

Online Tickets are available for €29, which includes VAT, access to the live stream and virtual venue where you can walk around and talk (or chat) with other online viewers, plus live Q&A/polls, and one-month exclusive access to the video recordings.

We're planning a livestream for those that can't make it, or are not yet comfortable attending in person. Video-only tickets cost €29 plus VAT, and give one month exclusive access to replay the full stream and view individual talks after we've cut the stream into smaller segments.

Right now!

In-person tickets will be available at €129 (or €97 without dinner) until May 27th. After May 27th, tickets go up by €10 to encourage early sign ups as we'll need a decent idea of the number of people at the start of June.

Registration for in-person tickets closes on June 23rd.

Video tickets will remain available at the €29 price point until one month of all videos being made available. If you'd like to watch the live stream, please book by July 3rd as we may need to add you to the livestreaming platform and that's going to be a very busy week.

Tickets cannot be cancelled or refunded once bought.

You can however upgrade, downgrade, or change the name on your tickets until June 23rd. Just send an email to [email protected] with the changes you'd like to make. When downgrading, the difference will be added as credit on your modmore account or refunded within two weeks. When upgrading, we'll send you an invoice for that within two weeks.

Using our existing billing platform saves us a fair bit in typical event ticketing fees, and it's also already integrated with our accounting. As we're organising this conference on short notice, the less time we have to spend on such things, the better. Secondly, access to the livestream and videos (for the first month after they're released) is assigned to your account.

We do still have a few open slots, both lightning talks (10-15 minutes) and a full slot. If you're interested, please email [email protected]

Definitely! Please email [email protected] with details, and we'll make sure to pass it along to the kitchen staff.

Lunch and dinner do already include some vegetarian options, but we may replace some of the meat or fish options or arrange for some extra veggy dishes if there's a desire for that.

Yes, the 2020 MODXpo was scheduled to take place in Heidelberg. While we were very excited about the plans there, COVID caused it to be postponed and then canceled entirely.

As the situation right now (May '22) seems optimistic enough to host a conference before the summer holidays, we at modmore decided to slim it down to a one-day single-track event we could run ourselves. Combined with renting space at a commercial hotel/conference center instead of an office center, which takes a lot more effort to turn into a full-blown conference, makes it only slightly unreasonable to organize it all in just three months.

Hopefully the MODXpo Heidelberg plan can be picked up again for 2023. We'll of course support such initiatives as well.

When someone steps up to host it! ;)

Unfortunately for the rest of the world, the density of MODX users is simply a lot larger in Western and Eastern Europe than it seems to be elsewhere, making it a desirable place to organise conferences like this.

We, too, would love to attend conferences elsewhere though. We're always happy to support other organizers with sponsoring or organizational support, so hit up Mark if you see an opportunity near you.
