The organizing team met in a Google Hangout this evening to discuss a number of things, including our need to find the venue. We have three locations which are promising and we hope to have something definitive by the end of next week. Once we have that, we will be able to do more promotion of the event as well as start a serious search for sponsors. It is difficult to ask companies to donate when we don't yet know how much we need. I will be happy when the venue falls into place because I know everything else will follow.
