W-EBTM 2016 Post your candidacy here!

Postby eddydevries » Mon Sep 07, 2015 4:50 pm

The S-EBTM 2015 just finished, so you can start thinking about the Winter EBT Meeting of next year.

In this topic, you can volunteer to organize Winter EBT Meeting 2016.

Because this year there was enough time to organise both the Winter- and the Summer-meeting (unlike previous years), the BoD wishes also the next Winter meeting to be organized not too late.
The best period would be in the winter, so up until the end of March.

Requirements/conditions/guidelines for organizers:
  • Two organizers or more. One will be appointed as the main organizer
  • The main organizer is at least 21 years old
  • The main organizer should be able to communicate in English
  • At least one of the organizers should have participated in an official international Eurobilltracker meeting
  • At least one of the organizers should live in or know the city where the event will take place very well
  • At least one of the organizers should have organized a national EBT meeting

Requirements/conditions/guidelines for candidate city:
  • The city should have a certain touristic appeal. International EBTM participants will stay for more than one day and they should be able to see more things than they will see on the meeting day.
  • The city should be located near an international airport.
  • The city should have a railroad station, preferable an international railroad station
  • There should be youth hostels nearby where people can stay cheap
  • There should be a few restaurants which are able to have a large group of people eating there or two/three restaurants located near each other which can handle some smaller groups.

Remember this a checklist. If a candidate doesn't match all of these conditions, it still can be a candidate to organize an official international eurobilltracker meeting.
Still, the more requirements a candidate-organizing team has, the more credibility the candidacy has.

Candidates, place your candidacy here in this thread.
If you do so, please give us:
  • The name(s) of the organizing team;
  • The city you want to organize Winter EBTM16 in;
  • The dates that you can organize it; a detailed schedule of the event is not needed, the big lines are appreciated.

Please, keep this thread for candidates only!

The sooner the candidacy is posted, the more time the organizing team will have for organizing the meeting. It's a win-win situation if the candidature is published early.

I would like to discuss the candidacy/candidacies of the Wintermeeting. But if there's no-one who wants to organize one there's not much to discuss.

So please post here a message to candidate for organizing !!!.

Does anyone have some scratch\idea so far and is working on it? If yes, keep going!
If not, how about if we'll meet all together in :flag-ie: Dublin on the weekend of 02-03/April/2016?
(I sent a few messages to "locals" with this suggestion, but no reply so far).
But anyway, what we'll need? Make a City Tour? To book a place for dinner on Saturday, for example? A pool can be made later with 2 or 3 suggestions, and Internet will be our "friend" to book the place. This year we went to Cyprus for a meeting organized by non-locals and, in my opinion, was a nice meeting, right?

Why Dublin?
- Never was organized an International EBT Meeting in Ireland;
- Easy (and cheap) to reach by (and not only) low cost flight companies;
- Easy to get 2 dots in the city (even 3 or 4 dots, using public transport to reach, for example, Dalkey and\or Sutton/Howth, about 30min far away);

Suggestions? (extra)Volunteers? :roll:
(if is to exchange some ideas, maybe PM to avoid to create extra-spam in this topic that was created for real candidacy)

Never been in Dublin, and always postponed travel there into the future. It's a nice idea, but don't know if that can be be possible myself/ourselves in April...

Hello from Munich,

I have checked with the Munich trackers for the meeting in Dublin.
If the meeting could be postponed by 1 to 2 weeks later, it would be well and would very likely also be there.
greetings from Munich
Grüße an alle
