> 
> ## PRESS RELEASE: The world’s biggest open data event
> 
> Hundreds of public servants, NGOs, journalists and developers will
> gather in a former factory building in Warsaw this week for what will
> be the world’s biggest ever open data event.
> 
> Over 40 countries around the world will be represented at the camp,
> from city level projects in Manchester, Montreal or Munich to national
> initiatives like data.gov, as well as supranational institutions like
> the European Commission and the World Bank.
> 
> Ellen Miller, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Sunlight
> Foundation, says: "We anticipate that this year’s Camp will convene
> the open data and transparency movement’s most creative thinkers,
> doers and advocates, whose conversations will help inspire many
> enduring solutions for using government data for the public good."
> 
> Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the European Commission and Digital
> Agenda Commissioner, says: “I am thrilled to see so much open data
> innovation going on in Europe. There is tremendous potential in this
> area - from enabling next generation public services, to creating jobs
> in the digital single market. This year's Open Government Data Camp in
> Warsaw will enable key stakeholders from across Europe to exchange
> ideas and expertise.”
> 
> Chris Taggart, Founder of OpenCorporates.com, says: “Despite the
> successes of the past few years, the open data community faces
> considerable obstacles, from proprietary web services to governments
> who see open data as a threat. Open Government Data Camp will connect
> people who are serious about overcoming these issues and using open
> data to help to solve some of the world’s pressing problems.”
> 
> Daniele Silva, part of a grassroots group of over 800 Brazilian
> hackers and activists, says: "To maximise the value of public data,
> there is just as much work to de done on the civic society side as
> there is on the government side. The camp in Warsaw is an opportunity
> for us to collaborate with groups from around the world to work
> towards a read/write culture for public data."
> 
> Nigel Shadboldt, who sits on the UK Government’s Public Sector
> Transparency Board, says: “Open Government Data creates social and
> economic value, improves public services, makes Governments more
> efficient, transparent and accountable. This Conference is about
> ensuring that more people understand how to make this work, more
> people can tackle the challenges and obstacles that arise, and more
> people are inspired to continue the work.”
