VENUE and HOTEL Pics

PLEASE NOTE VENUES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
As there are many participants not interested in the hotel bundle there is a chance we will change hotels and conference venue depending on numbers.  This will all be finalised before accepting payment.

Room comes with Wifi, access to fitness centre, pool, business lounge and breakfast included.

an option to buy conference entry only? i'm quasi local and the bed & breakfast is uhm, overpriced compared to couch surfing and budget gourmet dining at pubs for dinner. no need to make it "cesky sen" style for free but keep in mind the 26$ entry fee for the August NY gig. there was even a lady present ; )

More or less what I've asked before, guess we'll probably get old and die before it gets answered.

I'm not in hurry to know the location, calendar entry made. I can imagine it's a lot of work to organize a conference, evaluation of offers etc. good luck and thanks for considering the proposals in this thread. : )

The venue looks fantastic from the picture and Having Falkvinge there to speak is icing. I wish badly I didn't live on the other side of the globe right now. Maybe it's time I plan a Eurotrip?  Grin

Getting better and better...

A well setup video link to a few people who might not be able to join in person (Gavin, Jeff, Julian,...) would also be great!

As for detractors: maybe someone from the BVDW (German organization representing interests of companies in the digital world - claiming: "We are the net"). They had a very critical press release back in June, basically warning every consumer in Germany to use Bitcoins because they have the potential to sustainably damage society as a whole.

If you can't find anybody else, maybe even just an articulate (local) economics professor who opposes some of Bitcoins fundamentals.

While we're at it: please have a panel discussion - especially if you find a good detractor! Panel discussions (with a good moderator) are IMHO just the perfect format for such conferences.

Apart from that, I second the suggestion to have a microphone ready for the audience or a moderator repeating their questions and please schedule enough time for Q&A.

I'm really looking forward to this event and its great to see it in such capable hands!

We have already enough detractors in the world, no need to bring some at the conference in my opinion

+10, as much as many detractors get it completely wrong, groupthink and memetic inbreeding are a very serious problem with the Bitcoin community.

We have been looking for high profile detractors, a debate or panel discussion might work nicely.

Does anyone have any suggestions for detractors?

There are several types of detractors, it depends on what you look for.

Only on the economics side, there are Keynesians, lovers of inflation, and also the goldbugs ("It's backed by nothing!"). Bringing somebody that's for inflation is probably pointless, but high profile goldbugs might be interesting. You may find them around places like the Mises Institute. Hasn't Peter Schiff made these type of criticisms on bitcoin, by the way? He would be very "high profile", maybe even too much expensive since he's a media guy already... but it doesn't hurt asking. ;-)

There's also the technical side. I'd like to see some good technical criticism.
