Propose a new location

If you know a good place which offers a meeting room with the typical equipment (internet access, projector, whiteboard or flipchart) and nearby hotels and public transport please contact Manuel Schneider. We expect about 10 participants from Germany, Switzerland, France and a few from overseas (USA, Israel), so keep in mind that transportation to and from major train stations and airports has to be arranged. The total budget for the meeting is about 2.500 EUR, that's approximately 200 EUR per person plus rent of the meeting room and other general cost (such as snack buffet and drinks during the meeting or transportation costs). Bear in mind that travel costs exceed the openZIM budget so they are paid by the participants. Choose a place which is easy and cheap to reach.
