Cancun! There are cheap flights to go here both from the UE and the US. And the sunny climate would be perfect for our e-ink screen.

It seems that we already have an almost monthly Euro Meet-up in Paris thanks to Zelda.

Additionally, there has been talk of a late fall/early winter DC area meet-up as we may start having one every six months. (We will try to work it around Nate's flight schedule, planet alignment permitting. )

Hmm, I like Germany... You can keep the beer though (but I will want to see Castle Neuschwanstein!)

Oh, boy! This won't be easy!

Okay! Those places that only have one MR member, forget it. That's too much work for one person. The host city must have a team ready, one that has the time to set things up.

Nomesque has hit on something interesting. We could have a simultaneous meetup from different points in the world via webcams, but that would be for a short time. And that's not quite the way I'd like to meet you all. I want to look you in the eye while I shake your hand, I want to feel who you are, what your life is about, feel why you are MRers. That can only be done through different points in a series of days.

When I met pshrynk, I felt that we barely scratched the surface.We could have gone on for hours. That is the kind of meeting I would want with you guys.

Since everyone seems to want the meeting in their backyards, we'll have to limit choices to big Metropolis centers. Places already set for conferences and filled with cultural activities. Vegas is out of the question but LA, New York would be OK for that side of the pond. (Montreal is too small) Then London (my favorite choice) Paris, ?Rome?, ?Berlin?, those could qualify, and any other big cities.

If the meetup lasts 3 days, the city would have to provide entertainment enough for a whole week of stay. I would love this to also be a vacation and spend the rest of the week there without travelling out.

I agree with all the above. But maybe we should try to find out who's interested in a worldwide meetup first and then think about the location. If lots of Europeans are, it would be best to choose a city in Europe. If the majority of people who would like to meet are from your side of the pond, New York or L.A. are far better options. Just a thought....

In the latter case, NY would be a much better choice as that would be halfway Europe and America (ok, the west coast and south coast). Those Aussies are used to having to fly a full day, so it wouldn't matter too much to them

Oh, what the heck. Let's just meet in Paris. There are loads of members already willing to meet there every other day. And they're held there so often that we don't even really have to schedule anything - just show up and there's probably one in progress.
