Hi all,

I'm beginning to contact potential venues for next year's conference, and wanted to get input from you all on possible dates.

We're thinking July or August would be ideal, but did anyone have any preference on which weekend?
Or do you know of any potential event clashes that will either make accommodation difficult or expensive, or reduce our numbers, or prevent people from attending in any way? We could start narrowing down the dates by eliminating those.

Thank you all for any ideas or advice, much appreciated!
Have a great day!
Carly

I would avoid school holidays, as many people have family commitments and are unavailable, plus accommodation is less available.
NSW: Saturday, 6 July 2019 to Sunday, 21 July 2019
QLD: 29 Jun 2019 to 14 Jul 2019
VIC: 29 Jun 2019 to 14 July 2019

Ditto what Tim said, cost of flights from Perth -> East Coast jump up a lot during holidays.

So true!

Okay, so far, we're looking at weekends of:

27/28 July 2019
3/4 August 2019
10/11 August 2019
17/18 August 2019
24/25 August 2019

Other major Joomla events seem to be held more towards the end of the year.

Be sure you chime in if you think of anything else that might impact our event.

Thanks!

Other events that need consideration include:
  • Brisbane Ekka (usually held during mid-August annually (usually starts on 2nd Thursday for 10 days)
  • Rugby League State of Origin (know this a mid-week event but airfares & hotel prices can jump around

Ah! I completely forgot the Ekka!

Ekka will be 10-19 August 2019 and State of Origin Game 2 will apparently be 23 June 2019, so I might assume it will be over by the end of July, so let's narrow it down to for now:

27/28 July 2019
3/4 August 2019
24/25 August 2019

Thanks for your time on this team!

To me the end of July is the better option for scheduling purposes.
