Technical Meeting Sponsorship

2001-02-06 Thread Dave Cross

I've been investigating places to hold Damian's meeting and I've already
got some interesting leads (the Conway Hall looks like it might well
work out!)

The problem with moving from a room in someone's office to a 'real'
meeting room is that we'll probably have to pay for it. I'm therefore 
touting for someone whose company might be interested in sponsoring
the event. Costs of the rooms vary, but it might be a little as £150
or as much as £500.

Any offers? I want to get this sorted out this week.

Cheers,

Dave...

Conway Hall would be a great venue, for the name alone!

It can't be too expensive, because it's used by any number of
fringe anarcho groups, who presumably don't have too much cash
spilling around.

It would be spectacularly appropriate :)

I can't remember exactly what the email I got from them said, but they
were _far_ cheaper than the Commonwealth Institute (which I also
investigated). There was a larger room for ~500 and a smaller one for
~70. I think the smaller one costs £155 for the evening. So that is
looking pretty good to me right now.

If I don't get any other volunteers I may consider making it a Magnum
Solutions sponsored event (if it only costs £150!)

It would also be quite an interesting venue with a lot of character
and Holborn is easy to get to (central and north of the river).

Anyone fancy taking on a "web design patterns in Perl" book?

(ref conversation on the mod_perl list...seems like Gunther's broken
the back of it ;-)

Yeah, in the late seventies - early eighties you used to get bands the
like of Crass and Crisis playing there (use Google you yoofs) I think it
is (the hall that is ) thinged up with some religious group with strong
socialist (in the general rather than party sense) political views ...
