Now that would be a compelling reason to go to Europe, even if Lionel
snowboards. No one has mentioned France yet as a location but it seems
like a lot of you live there.
I also know this ski resort in Colorado that has some pretty nice conference
facilities - dedicated T1, wifi, lots of conference rooms. I think I could
get a good deal on it - probably just for the cost of catering. For anyone
who skis I can get cheap lift tickets. Likewise, I can get a deal on
but it wouldn't be that great ($80 USD /night or so).
However, I don't think Colorado is as convenient as Minneapolis and the few
$$$ saved on facilities probably wouldn't justify it. The one nice thing
about Minneapolis is the major airport closeby - Northwest is the major
there and they partner with KLM. A quick look on Travelocity shows tickets
for under $600 USD (under 500 Euro?) for airfare from various European
Despite what Jeremy says about Minneapolis, I don't think anyone from Europe
will be surprised by cold temperatures. If you're used to seeing snow on
ground it's not much different.. except for the times when your eyelids
I agree with Jeremy that having dual conferences doesn't sound as appealing.
