    Come to Copenhagen, Denmark.
    It it’s big enough for the COP15 Climate Confrence, it's probably enough for Teched! And after COP15 we really need an event with a positive outcome for a change.
    We have Carlsberg and Tivoli!

    Tech-Ed Europe is held i November when it is winter time, cold and dark (in Denmark).  So it should be somewhere warm and nice, like Barcelona in Spain or Rome in Italy  :-)

    Hannover is hosting the CeBIT fair every year with more than 300,000 visitors (up to 850,000 in new economy era). There is an airport and a big railway station with a junction of the main railways through Europe. And there is a hub of two of the main autobahns. In the year 2000 the world expo was held in Hannover with 25,000,000 visitors from around the world. So what about having TechEd Europe in CeBIT city Hannover?

    Well, I'd surely love you to come to Barcelona again, and if that's not an option, Lisbon is somewhere I'd really love to go... :-)

    Don't forget, we asked that you not only suggest where we should hold the next TechEd Europe but tell us WHY you think we should have it there.  Please take into consideration our requirements (thousands of delegates that we need to put into a keynote hall, feed in meal rooms, hold hundreds of sessions with about 15 breakouts running concurrently, dozens of nearby hotels, good public transportation, etc) and then think of convention centers that could accommodate us.  Looking forward to your creative answers and reasoning!

    It would be good to see TechEd Europe in Warsaw, Poland. It looked like Imagine Cup 2010 was well hosted and received there. Should be good.

    Copenhagen has a brand new METRO to take attendees from the large Convention center into the many hotels in the City. You can also use the METRO UI on you Windows Phone 7 to find a free City Bike in Copenhagen (once I submit the app for it) http://www.clr-namespace.com/post/CityBike-Application-WP7.aspx
    Microsoft’s largest development center in Europe is located in Copenhagen, as is the largest airport in Scandinavia.
    Copenhagen hosted the COP15 Climate summit last year with 12.000 delegates on 63.000 sq. meters of space. 10.000 Swedish chickens were consumed during that event.
    The Hotel capacity is great. This year Tivoli just finished a new Hotel making the capacity even larger. http://www.tivolihotel.dk/
    And the food? Well, according the Restaurent magazine the worlds best Restaurent is located in Copenhagen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restaurant_(magazine)_Top_50

    What about Westerland, on the very beautiful North Sea Island of Sylt, Germany. They have a congress center for at least 1200 people there and certainly more space. Wouldn't walks at the beach side be a perfect complement for an information overloaded event...?

    http://www.westerland.de

    http://www.westerland.de/de/westerland/navigation/bereich/sylt-erleben.html

    Well, too bad the website is not in english, maybe they can improve for the event!

     

    Cheers

    in case a small island is too exotic, I'd also opt for free-speech Reykjavik! Smiley

    Well, Davos has a lot of experience with the Forum and such so maybe it would be a good option.

    I would love to see the next TECHED in DUBLIN, IRELAND
    Why:
    -The new Convention Centre Dublin can host events for up to 8,000 people.-Getting to Dublin by air is easy and popular.-Dublin has more than 18,000 hotel rooms, many within walking distance of Convention Centre.-Ireland’s capital is easy to get around and offers a variety of activities to keep anyone busy including shopping, visitor attractions, historical tours, theatre, sight-seeing tours as well as some of the most exciting restaurants, bars, cafes and night clubs in Europe. Dublin is also world famous for its warm welcome and hospitality.-Ireland is a major player in the IT industry

    Budapest? There is a big venue at the Congress and World Trade Centre, flights from all over Europe, and plenty of hotels. Would probably be for the attendees than many of the Western European cities as well.

    I'd love to see it in Birmingham - UK at the International Conference Centre - ICC. The ICC can cater for up to 8,000 attendees. It has easy road/rail/air/public transport access. The ICC is right in the heart of the city and there is easy access to all amenities, culture and arts. Accomodation would not be an issue in the UK's second biggest city. The city is packed with fantastic options for everyone, of every culture, age, sex, religion etc. It has a wealth of nightlife, cinemas, shows, exhibitions, theatres, shopping, museums and 1,000 years of history. It is as diverse as the TechEd attendees.

    ICC Details: http://www.theicc.co.uk/organiser/servicesfacilities/default.aspx

    And why should I attend? Well.........

     

    With Microsoft serving a daily delight,  hope my brain chews up every 'byte’.

    Disc-tinctive variety and visual display, each TechNet second – I’ll enjoy data day. 

    Computing my passion, learning my goal, with TechEd and Microsoft, I'm in CTRL. 

    I've zillions of reasons - all of them Gr8, hey wonderful world let's COM-u-NIC8.

    RAM upgrade installed, BlueRay inserted, brain cells alerted = boredom deserted!

    “Microsoft” explained as clearly as poss, goodness me – such a long way from DOS!

    When lost in jargon and each step's a bungle, TechNet experts will guide me through the jungle.

    No more tacky, cheap mistakes, I’ll CD difference an expert makes.

    I would love to give it a bash, just hope my cells can take a new flash.

    I don't see the Attendee Directory option under Returning Services.  Where exactly is it?
    Thanks.

    Zurich, Switzerland is your next city!
    Big but not too big, great easy access from Zurich airport (10 min by train).
    It’s in the middle of Europe with great train connections from all around.
    The city hosts multiple financial conferences at least the size of Tech Ed so no problem there.
    Alpine view and a lake – just the best :)

    You should come to my home town of Glasgow and hold it at the brilliant Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (www.secc.co.uk)

    Glasgow is a city with everything to offer. It is Scotland'scultural capital and one of the most dynamic cities in Europe:steeped in culture, rich in history, with elegant streets, squares,parks and gardens; the name Glasgow actually means 'dear greenplace'. What's more, it's one of the UK's finest Victorian citieswith magnificent architecture everywhere you look. The respectedLonely Planet guide recently said of the city: "Glasgow is regenerating and evolving at a dizzying pace. Its Victorian architectural legacy is now swamped with cutting-edge style barsand world-class venues to tickle your taste buds. The city is goingthrough a long-term transformation, evident along the revitalisedRiver Clyde."

    What all tht PR stuff means is that Glasgow is a fun and vibrant city and you will all receive a warm Scottish welcome!

    I have been fruitlessly trying to convince my boss of the benefit of attendance. It would be great to go and then come back with so much info that the benefits speak for themselves.
