I think if we have the provisional hotel @gabriel suggested for a meeting point, maybe conference room, and then move on to pubs, bars, restaurants AND then; regarding accommodation :

The easiest way forward I believe for accommodation is to individually source it yourself

Because numbers could change, people might not pay, etc.

So I want to avoid group booking for accommodation

But I do still want 2 or 3 more venues so we have a little bit of a choice


#379

Agreed - group booking will be a shot in the foot… :slight_smile:
More thinking, that if we have a corporate rate, or a employee discount that we can offer without ensuring numbers - we should definitely leverage that, at that hotel - and let people take advantage if they want…
But only if it’s a no effort thing, which corporate rates should be at least :wink:

So I just need to know if @gabriel or me can get the best rate, through whatever channels we have at our disposal :slight_smile:

And yea - I’d prefer to have the actual meetup somewhere a little less sterile than a closed conference room, to be honest - for atmosphere, and to have the opportunity for walk-ins as well


#380

Right, so @gabriel good spot, and great if you can get us discount for staying the night. It looks good, and is located nicely.

I do however want you and @CryptoS17 to provide a few more venues for the attendees,

@CryptoS17 I respect you brother for discussing corporate discount, etc however; this is the first meet, and we will not have massive numbers to really justify the extra work in narrowing down margins of cost.

Also, I do not want us to put off potential attendees and decide on just one place without being able to select from a few, for the sake of saving a bit of money.

So, the plan is, I would kindly like to see at least 3 venues we can look at.

Do not worry if you can not secure us any special deal, I just want some variety for the users to pick from.

So, Action plan:

Provide 3 different venues with links, and a short description, and anything else you see fit to add


#381

I’m literally just talking about letting people book their own, and being able to shave some of that cost off, IF they pre-book on their own backs - I’m not about to pin my employers corporate deals on the hopes of people I never met showing up :wink:

So basically I’ll just find out how much of a discount I can offer if people decide to book their own at that hotel, and if they do, they’ll get a discount code or whatever - not sure how the BW partnerships work, I’ll just have to check on that :slight_smile:

So I’ll start looking for a venue close to the aformentioned hotel, as well as 2 more randomly centered around the transport hubs, so if @gabriel does the same, we should be left with a decent 4-6 venue pool to narrow from, from that :slight_smile:


#382

That would be awesome dude.

Exactly the path forward to finally ironing out these details.

Good man


#383

Little update Guys,

We are making amazing progress and narrowing down the details, we have established some core factors which leaves us with the following:

We will be deciding upon 3-6 venues in London, this will be THE FINAL POLL, so when the links go live for the venues, have a read up, see what you think, and then vote on that bad boy.

I expect by tomorrow to have a choice of venues from which to pick from.

Much love


#384

I’ll bring cake :joy:


#385

@gabriel @CryptoS17

What is good my brothers, have we found some links to post for tonight?


#386

Just finishing up the daily grind at the office, so I’ll have to look around a bit in a few, when I get back home and go through address book :slight_smile:

I’ll keep you “posted” :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#387

My maaaaaaaan!!!

I like it brother. I want to post the choices tonight.

If you struggle let me know, and i will find some too.

Poll goes live tonight


#388

Hey my man. How many details do you want me and @CryptoS17 to provide? I am watching now those coworkers places and I’m wondering if it’s if it’s ok?


#389

Co workers place, confused mate?


#390

Yes I’m. Probably lack of language is barier.


#391

Sorry brother, i am struggling to work out what you was originally asking?


#392

I have the same bro. I don’t know what you want me to do. How you see those venues will look like?
Give me a command.


#393

I simply do not care how the venues look, but lets have some atmosphere, something quirky, anything!!

Literally just some venues whether it is a bar, pub, restaurant, niche outlet.

What I want is at least 3 venues from you, and @CryptoS17


#394

I can arange one in the place I’m. Even next tuesday, but you said London only so quiet far to be on all of them.


#395

ALL i need, is 3 venues so i can conduct a poll, and 3 from @CryptoS17

Do not worry about booking, price, etc as that is something i will do.

I just want you two to scout some venues tonight, a quick google search, it takes 30 minutes.


#396

Camden: http://www.thefiddlerselbow.co.uk/ (attended a few jams, and have a direct connection, but no leverage)
Awesome little venue tho’ and very open to any kind of events.


Nice little pub, AWESOME grub, and a small capacity, separate room for presentations…

Kingston:
http://www.the-fighting-cocks.co.uk/
A great alt rock / stand-up venue, with a real rough cut look, but GREAT atmosphere and separate social room as well

Turns out I left my “rollerdex” in my other apartment, so this is just of the top of my head.

All 3 venues are 15-30 minutes away from Waterloo/victoria, and very easy to find.
Camden is £5-10 with an Uber from Victoria or Waterloo.
Kingston is £15-20 from Victoria or Waterloo with an uber, or there’s a direct train from waterloo.

Kingston and Camden is RIPE with options really, but it’s maybe not ideal for outsiders coming in…

I can find something more central if that’s what we want/need, but I won’t be able to spot those, until I get my hands on my books :slight_smile:


#397

This is perfect my brother.

Listen guys, I am no longer interested in getting a ‘good deal’, forgot the contacts, forget the corporate discount.

Lets just get some venues, that is all i want

:slight_smile:
