Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

Why Wikivoyage presentation will be focus on why you should edit and contribute to Wikivoyage and how it can become fun to edit it. We will explain why we think Wikipedia is boring and Wikivoyage is a fun project.

We will also present the developments and improvements made after the birth of Wikivoyage in late 2012 as well reveal our future plans, goals and developments that should be made in upcoming years to come. We will show how the project progressed during the last year after the migration on Wikimedia servers and how the project can be further developed and progressed under the Wikimedia umbrella and further publicised especially among the broad-Wikimedia community and how we can compete with the traditional travel guides.
