    I wish you could come to the one being held here, as much as I wish I could also attend yours. Especially if held at arigram's beach suggestion!
    Wether it's a full fledged Conf. or get together or a small meeting of two photographers over the local brew, I hope it happens for you all!

    I also do not see the problem. In a lot of European APUG contacts there seems to be some interest to meet each other, exchange experiences, maybe combined with a seminar or whatever. We are just checking out some possibilities and European members who are maybe interested for such a day/weekend.

    Travelling to Canada or USA is quite different than driving a few hours in a car for a seminar and /or a meeting.

    But for further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Hans or me.

    Best regards,

    Robert

    OK I don't understand. The APUG Conference is suppose to do just what you described.

    If you are putting together a 'get-together', I don't see a problem. We just had one last weekend in Asbury Park.

    But, if you're putting on a 'conference', then that's another story. Many of us here in North America would FLY OVER THERE to attend a conference - even if it's a weekend. Maybe that's the difference in our philosophies.

    Organizing two conferences will dilute people's resources. I would hope that many European APUGers will travel to Toronto, Canada for the APUG Conference and meet other APUGers from around the world.

    So can you see why it would be conflicting and confusing if you are putting on a conference? I am hoping this is just an English language thing....

    Relax Art, nobody's stealing away your future attendees.
    I would have loved to attend a conferance if it was somewhat closer or
    somewhere more exotic (well, for me that is) even though I imagine is a lot
    easier and less problematic to travel to Canada than the US.
    If there was a conferance somewhere in Europe, let it be after the American one for obvious reasons.

    simple solution. North america one year, Europe the next. No interference at all. Then those that can attend both can. Those that can only attend one, will at least hopefully have one closer to them. No harm, no foul. It was only a simple question about holding one in Europe, and not the same year as the Toronto one. After all North America is not the center of the apug universe. I think it resides somewhere near Auckland NZ

    Go back to the first post: this is just a call for interest. Obviously, no one is going to arrange a conference that will dilute the Toronto APUG conference (as if!)...

    BTW, Return fare London <--> Toronto = 250 GBP, London <--> most places in N. Europe = around 125 GBP. Given all the other expenses: accommodation, meals out etc, it makes little difference from the UK perspective.

    Yes, I think it is.
    This thread is going to be a threat (I made already this mistake )

    I apologize for this inconvenience. We fully understand that two APUG conferences (same year) is something which is out of the question.
    We call it a meeting, combined with maybe a seminar or so. But that does not mean that we can not offer an attractive weekend for some APUG members. So far we count approx. 15 positive reactions together with some response on some German forum.

    For the APUG conference it is indeed a good idea to organize it on different continents in a time period. I am sure it is going to be a succes.

    Best regards,

    Robert

    I for one would attend an European Conference in 2007. In fact John Eric and myself will be making available all our notes, discussions, contacts bla bla bla to anyone interested in holding a conference elsewhere after ours. Let me assure you that organizing this event is a lot of work and requires a 2year planning stage. John Callow has and is doing an amazing amount of work getting the groundwork started on this. I am excited to already know that Europeans (Denmark) are confirmed to be here as well give an lecture. Also an instructor from the UK is also onboard.
    I honestly think every two years is more practical as we analog people move a bit slower and just by being involved in this project since last May (John vistited Toronto and the idea was formed then) has given us an insight on how to organize this conference and workshops. Passing on our experiences will be a pleasure, but be warned it is a lot of work and commitment.
    As of yet we have all our ducks in a row, but we now need commitments from APUGers from North America and abroad.

    Art by the way is working on the committie organizing field trips to the many photographic shows that are on at the same time as our planned event. I went on a day trip with him and must say had an excellent time.

    I also would be interested in a European ... meeting if traveling and accomodation is not too expensive. I would prefer having a meeting over a weekend, or three days Friday-Sunday.
