I have a preference for Berlin, but I'll go to London as well.

Looking forward to it!

Berlin for me because it's closer and I am one of ze Germans. (London is a great place to visit of course, but it doesn't necessarily have to be in a context of a Bitcoin conference.)

We should be focusing on the conference, not the location!

Excellent point. Cheesy

However, it is important to find a consensus on the location before any in-depth preparations start. I also strongly hope that everybody interested in supporting the conference will do so no matter what city turns out to be the prefered location. This is especially true for getting speakers and media contacts. This will be a community effort, and everybody's input and help is appreciated.

I would vote for Berlin due to three main reasons, already mentioned by some people before me:
1) Berlin has a way larger Bitcoin Community. From what it looks like there are more German than UK bitcoin users at least judging by Prague
2) For most continental Europeans, Berlin is easier to reach and easier to pay
3) UK is tough due to visa problems. Quite some of my friends are Russians. They can move freely within Schengen but not to the UK. Thus, it might be a problem for some people to get to London

As in regard to media coverage - if it is really happening in Berlin I should be able to help in this respect. I only have contact to German media, though.

That's not really "freely" because they will still need Schengen visa, which is not so easy to get.
Hong Kong or Vietnam would be nice.

Me, molecular and Mitchell (worldly) weighed up the various options for the location of the next conference. Me arguing for London, and molecular for Berlin.
What about Munich?

True - I was talking for all foreigners who already are in continental Europe. Plus - at least according to my friends it is easier to get Schengen Visa than UK VIsa - never tried it myself, though, so it's just hearsay.

If it is held in London again, can we please get some restaurant to accept bitcoin?  I would go out of my way to eat there all the time.

SealsWithClubs poker room has  over 400 players online. Buy in from .01 to 60btc.      BTCSportsMatch lets you bet sports with vig free lines!  Best kept secret in bitcoin....          LocalBitcoins.com is very user-friendly now for bank transfers.  You don't have to live close to trade when in the same currency area.           
Electrum client is awesome. Try it. And please stop sending bitcoins to sites run by security newbies, or don't complain when you lose everything.

Would prefer London for obvious reasons (for me) but Berlin is doable.

Berlin has without doubt  by far the largest Bitcoin community in Europe. Alone because of the potential participiants who live here it would make absolute sense to choose Berlin.

Berlin is dead cheap, London is bloody expensive (I've just been there again last week and couldn't believe my restaurant bills Wink). This accounts for accomodation, cabs, food, drinks, conference space ... not to mention cigarettes  Cry!

[]

Yes, London is the biggest banking-place in Europe but that is the kind of banking where BTC precisely does not want to go.

Last but not least:
Berlin will still be part of Europe next year, the Londoners are not so sure about that (sorry, could not resist  Wink).

I'd say first we take Berlin!

Joe


+1 Berlin

I happened to be so broke in November I couldn't even pay for a trip to Prague at the time. And I live and work in Berlin, which is more expensive than Prague. Considering costs in London, I'd love to go there again but I'm afraid I couldn't afford it.

I haven't done an official count, but it looks like there's more votes for Berlin than London…
