Want to know what makes the Shopware Community Day so distinctive?
Let's start at the early beginnings. We have to go back, way back. Back to 2011 in fact. Twelve years of annual Shopware Community Days, twelve years! In our digital age, this feels like an eternity. So what exactly started the SCD movement? Why were we one of the first ones to bring an annual ecommerce festival into life?To answer this question simply – because it's inherently in our DNA. Being an open source platform, by definition Shopware is all about the power of community.
The unstoppable force that comes from connecting with like-minded industry leaders, from inspiring and supporting each other, but also from casting a critical eye and not necessarily agreeing on everything – this is how you grow from a small family business to a multi-million global player in digital commerce. This is how you turn your dreams into reality. What started in 2011 as a “small” local trade exhibition with just 400 visitors in our neighboring village Ahaus, has now developed into an internationally renowned, fully hybrid ecommerce event – with some of the most acclaimed speakers worldwide.
The Shopware Community Day is getting bigger, stronger and more progressive every year – thanks to you and our dynamic community of digital commerce specialists. After two fully digital Shopware Community Days we're thrilled to welcome you back on location this year at the striking Tobit Campus in Ahaus, Germany. Yes, we’re going back to the roots! The Tobit Campus was the SCD home from the very early beginnings and for many subsequent years.
