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 ...
* 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 ?
