The summit is cancelled. See link for details.




Information is updated with recent developments.

1. The target size of the event has been increased to 40 due to encouraging reception, and the willingness to have a comprehensive event, and because we want to integrate both early adopters, recent investors, developers, infrastructure providers, the media etc.

2. Only the pre-summit will be organised in Malla Castle (pictured), the main event will be hosted in Rakvere Aqva Spa Hotel, the best spa in Estonia (itself the country with the most spas per capita in the world), from where the summit office is pictured.

3. The dates are open to fit the schedule of the main speakers (in the range of Oct-15...Dec-15 tentatively). I have asked fluffypony and Roger Ver (in addition to myself) to speak in the event.

4. The designation "speaker" does not mean that the feeling of a graceful summit is at risk. The spa section of the hotel is gorgeous, the rooms very nice, we will have private suites and a conference room with the "official" programme. Everyone will have a chance to grab the mic and everyone who wishes, will get it recorded. Outside the podium, we have a no-recording policy.

5. The 2 restaurants in the hotel and several elsewhere in Rakvere offer a choice of international and Estonian cuisine and have been tried and accepted.

6. Grand Dinner can still be hosted in my castle, but that will be an experience since despite all the heating available, the castle will be cold. The grand dinner will last typically about 8 hours with about 10 courses of food.

7. Rakvere is located about 1 hour from the Tallinn airport. A flight to Helsinki can also be considered if travel time is not a priority, since Helsinki is only a scheduled ferry ride from Tallinn.

8. Cost is still open, it will consist of event fee and accommodation package. A limited number of room upgrades available. A two-day stay in a single room, food and most drinks included, event fee, airport transfer = total about $1,000. Nobody is sponsoring the event but we are not fleecing either, the cost is what it is. The hotel is classy.

Grand dinner is part of the pre-summit?

If the main event is Sat-Sun, then the grand dinner would be Friday night.

Another possibility would be after the event, Sunday night in Malla, with the following overnighting in Malla. Perhaps this way even better.

We can only accommodate 20 people in Malla in hotel-like conditions. And about similar is the max dinner.

But organising the summit for so few feels like a waste as there are so many groups who like to get represented.

There is some support for the dates after the London BTC conference, about 9-12 November. And also around 15th.

The speaker feelers are also still out. However,

this is not a speaker-audience thing. Everyone may speak, but even that is not the main reason to come.

Coming together of the Monero people, that is.

Roger confirmed by "I would be interested in attending the event though."

("though" was supposedly to downplay his importance in Monero.) I am still waiting response from fluffypony, whom I consider rather important in Monero regardless of any attempt of downplaying it  Grin

The task to coordinate the event time, remains.

Possibly interested. Sounds like a blast. Can we pay the cost in Monero?

Yes, you will be able to. We are still too early to even find out the cost, and also there will the challenge if we denominate in XMR (which we would like to), then the changes in rate affect people's willingness to come. Just this year, a bitcoin conference got cancelled partly because BTC shot up.

Fluffypony is confirmed to attend, though, so it is going to be the important meeting as it was intended to be.
