I think Exkg has a good idea with regards to using the Zabbix partners, and the two year rotation.

In that case I volunteer to be the US partner for the event. :-D I'm willing to invest if necessary to make it happen. :-)

exkg. really thank you for this idea/proposal. because it scares me a bit to manage an event from overseas. but partner idea gives a relief on that.
my personal opinion (but not official position of Zabbix) is to have next conference in the USA.

I understand 0siris point, but I think that the poll under the previous attendees will give a false results. Many potential attendees did not come to the conference due to travel issues. If we always ask previous attendees, we will never move any further than Latvia, since many locals have attended the conference.

I see that our discussion moved from dates (and I did not hear any objections on those proposed) to location. So may be we have to concentrate now more on location and those partners that can help in organizing the event?

Sersor I think identifying locations would be the best idea for now, and in doing so try to identify people/partners who are willing to help make it happen. Zabbix SIA will still need to play a part, but the partner can be the local guide on the ground.

i'd suggest concentrating on the initial question - dates - first. i think the original idea was to finalise dates by december 1st, so if no significant clashes are found till then, we could start a new thread after that to discuss location.

i kinda like the idea of lv - somewhere - lv - somewhere cycle, although the complexities scare me a bit ;)

Wasn't Brazil suggested as well? Granted traveling to Brazil may be quite a challenge for most people. Speaking for myself only I think it might be cheaper to get to Riga than Brazil from DC.

Sersor,

You're welcome

I totally agree about local partners help to hold the next ones 'ZABBIX Conferences'. And (to be clear) we are really willing to help in next events ...

Some considerations:
* About dates: will be necessary adjust dates to better season in each country/continent. I think that winter and autumn are the best ones in any place (we dont have 'extremes' ... heat or cold). But I guess we can think about to have a fixed date (01/12 all years ...).

* About 'how local partners can help': ZABBIX SIA need have a pattern to partners follow. I mean ... ZABBIX SIA need to define how things need be managed/done. In this point our 'pattern' can be the same used in first ZABBIX Conference. ZABBIX SIA can send us a manual or something similar with this definitions.

In this scenario we'd have:

- ZABBIX Conference 2011: Riga - Latvia
- ZABBIX Conference 2012: DC - USA
- ZABBIX Conference 2013: Riga - Latvia
- ZABBIX Conference 2014: Porto Alegre - Brazil
- ZABBIX Conference 2015: Riga - Latvia
- ZABBIX Conference 2016: Tokio - Japan
- ZABBIX Conference 2017: Riga Latvia

Can I buy tickets and book hotels for all these years right now ?

[]s,
Luciano

this is getting slightly offtopic, but i'd slightly object to winter/autumn being the best. zabbix conference participants actually got incredibly great & warm weather for the time of the year (whether it was caused by global warming or whatever ). at least for this hemisphere, earlier time might be a bit more safe (which is also partially a reason why suggested dates have shifted one week before what the previous event was)
