W-EBTM 2015 Post your candidacy here!

Postby eddydevries » Sun Aug 31, 2014 9:46 am

Now we're cooling down from the S-EBTM 2014, you can start thinking about the Winter EBT Meeting of next year.

In this topic, you can volunteer to organize Winter EBT Meeting 2015.

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 EBTM15 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!

This topic will be closed on 12th of October (around 17:00 WEST / 18:00 CEST / 19:00 EEST), so the BoD can start to discuss about the candidates afterwards.

This will give the organizers enough time to organize.

I would like to candidate Larnaca, :flag-cy: for the Winter EBT Meeting 2015.

Even though the organizers are not locals to Cyprus we still think we can make a nice meeting there.
The organisers will be Crazy Bob and me, both from The Netherlands and both experienced in (co-)organizing EBT Meetings (WEBTM11 and SEBTM13 respectively).

About
Cyprus is an island country located in the Mediterranean sea and consists of a Greek part and a Turkish part. Larnaca is located in the Greek part where the official language is Greek, but English is also commonly spoken.

Connections
As Cyprus is an island, the only way to get there is by air or by boat.
The main airport is Larnaca and has connections to various major airports in europe. An alternative airport is Paphos, served by several "low cost" carriers, and approximately 1.5 to two hours (by car) from Larnaca. For the more adventurous EBTers, connecting through Istanbul to Ercan in the Turkish part of the island is also possible.

About the meeting
The meeting wil be held somewhere in March with activities on Saturday and Sunday (morning) with a pre-meeting drink (or dinner if you're early) on Friday evening.

Some useful links
Tourist board of Larnaka http://larnakaregion.com/
Youth Hostel http://www.youth-hostels.co.uk/Cyprus/Larnaca
Hotels http://larnakaregion.com/en/directory/accommodation but there are many sites where you can find hotels
