21th night (social event)
I request a meeting of 5 minutes to list the video-cameras for covering the sessions.
It should be perfect to have three video-cameras from different angles in each session.
9 cameramen in total and 5 sessions of record for day and a total of 10 hours of recording for camera.
At the moment THE VIDEO-TEAM,
The 22-23 Federico and CONSEN will coordinate the coverage of the three parallel sessions, the video-shoots and interviews of the DrupalCon.org conference, to edit:Read more
I've just posted this request to the front page of the Drupalcon site:
However, having looked into getting coverage by a firm that specializes in such things, it looks to be 900EU for one cameraperson for only one day of the conference...which would only cover one room as well. This looks to be too expensive for us.
So, we are looking to the community to come up with some ideas. One person in a comment said they could bring their camcorder, but we need commitment from people to setup and run such coverage.
Anyone have other ideas regarding video coverage?
Other ideas and/or organizing to get full coverage -- please post below.
Does anyone know if there is a trainstation in the neighbourhood of the SAP Lounge? Or any other public transportation to get there easily?
I checked the site of SAP Lounge but there is no mentioning about this.
Furthermore perhaps someone knows if the car parking mentioned on the SAP Lounge site is free, or if not, the costs to park there?
I havn't booked my plane tickets yet, and I'd be able to book cheaper if I book a package.
So I would like to know where all of you guys are going to stay, and - if possible - book somewhere near.
I plan to stay in the center of the city, but realized that the SAP lounge is outside of the the city.
Any good suggestions?

As you might know, we try to organize at least two big Drupal events a year: one in North America and one in Europe. The latest Drupal conference took place in Vancouver and attracted more than 150 people! That is almost 6 months ago so a couple months ago we started scouting venues for this year's European Drupal conference. We are pleased to announce that this year's DrupalCON Europe which will take place in Brussels (Belgium), the second half of September (two months from now!). We'll communicate the exact dates and location as soon we have confirmation from the venue -- hopefully by the end of next week.Read more
I read at http://wiki.fosdem.org/tiki-index.php?page=FreeSleeping_and_Internet_in that there was free sleeping possible in Brussels and Leuven (~ 30 km from Brussels) in 2005 for fosdem.
Would that be interesting for someones? Does anyone have well contacts?
I thought that "DrupalCon Brussels 2006" would be something like DrupalCon Amsterdam 2005. Isn't it?
Following events take place:
|GovCamp 2006||September 15||Friday|
|Euro OSCON 2006||September 18 - 21||Monday - Thursday|
|BarCamp||September 22 - 24||Friday & Saturday|

Time is not on our side, we have been spending much time on venu. The international press center was close to the center, but quit expensive. The SAP-lounge that offered us there support is even a more beautiful location, but is out of walking distance and worse we are trying to get clarity for 20 days on the location. So I'm going for plan-B. The SAP-lounge is next to my university (vrije universiteit brussel) and I'm making arrangements to organize the conference there, when no clearly on SAP is offered by the end of this month the conference will take place on the university.
So for planning, there will (and shall) be a two days of DrupalCon on 22,23 September.Read more
Two weeks ago Dries was contacted by Gerard Fauchey with the suggestion to organize the Drupal conference at the SAP-lounge. Last week Bart and I had a look at the place, we where surprised, the place was more than we could hope for. We where especially interested in the open aria and the rooms around it. I had planed to wait with this information until we got a reaction on our visit last week, so for now I can only let you know we are working on it. I'll hope to give some more concrete information, as soon as possible.
What we have in mind so far is to get the open aria and the rooms around it for the Drupal conference and BaCamp for 22-24 while we can have a GovCamp and more general Drupal presentations on Friday 21 on an other location. Also the SAP-lounge is more out of the center, but very close to the Petillion station (tube).Read more
I'm just reviewing the EuroOSCON site, and have the contact to request booth space. Looks like they have made space available.
Has anyone else been in contact? If not, I'll get in touch and see about reserving booth space, as well as promoting it to other communities (i.e. Joomla).
