Wikimania 2005: The First International Wikimedia Conference – was held in Frankfurt, Germany on 4th - 8th August 2005; and Wikipedians from all over the world met, often for the first time. Most people had an area of Wikipedia that they specialized in and the common thread was the enormous amount of time everyone devoted to making the site the success it is today.


Wikimania is the annual international conference of the Wikimedia community. Wikimania allows the community of Wikipedians, and the general public to learn more about Wikipedia and / or wiki technologies in general, and share their experiences face to face with free knowledge initiatives and events all over the world. Wikimania is organized by a different local WikimaniaTeam each year. In 2012, the conference took place in Washington, D.C., and the 2013 conference was hosted by Hong Kong. London was the home of the 2014 gathering. The 2015 event took place in Mexico, whilst the 2016 meet-up was in Italy. The last event in 2017 was held in Canada, whilst the next conference to be held in 2018 is scheduled for South Africa.

Wikimania is funded primarily by the Wikimedia Foundation; with further additional funding from other local, national and international sponsors.
