Potential Venues for Florida Drupalcamp 2015!!

Florida Drupal User's Group logo

Its that time of year again.. Florida Drupalcamp planning season.

This year, we're looking for a larger venue if possible. Florida Technical College is awesome, but experience and feedback has shown that their classrooms and auditorium are too small for our usage. In the event that we cannot find any other space, we'll likely go back there (assuming they'll have us).

What are we looking for?

Requirements

  • Single room that can hold ~300 attendees for keynotes plus 5-6 classrooms that can hold ~50 attendees.
  • Area for the 300 or so attendees to eat catered lunch.
  • Greater Orlando area.
  • Cost less than $3-4,000. We're also willing to order catering from the venue and provide ~80 room nights. Obviously, cheaper is better, and free is best.
  • Great Customer Service - we want someone that gets back to us quickly and works for our business.
  • Audio Visual Equipment - Projectors, mic, sound, and screens in every room
  • Wireless Internet Access - Cheap or free is best

Nice-to-haves

  • Quick access to after-party venue (it would be best if this is located at the venue).
  • Located near tourist-y area that would attract Drupalists from around the country (to turn it into a vacation)
  • Inexpensive room nights ($100 or so)
  • Power access in the classrooms.

Deadline

We’re working on a deadline here to get stuff done. The deadline is Monday, September 15th. After that, we’ll reach out to potentials and do further reseach.

Potential Venue List

We’re compiling a list of potential venues at https://docs.google.com/a/herchel.com/spreadsheets/d/19VVBkXGMTW7spYTr83...

Hey Florida Drupalers and Drupalistas!

We're looking for volunteers to man a Florida Drupal booth at http://fossetcon.org this Sept 11-13

More details can be found on their website at http://fossetcon.org. The conf will be held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel off of I-Drive.
