Montreal would be a great place to hold a DrupalCon. Not only is it a great city that people actually want to visit, being outside of the US avoids participants having to worry about crossing the US-border, which is a widely recognised as a limiting factor for international events that take place in the US.
I have already initiated discussions with the main conference center in Montreal to evaluate the potential costs associated to a DrupalCon in Montreal in 2012. Unfortunately, at this point I don't have a sense of the Drupal Association's interest in this proposal and, in any case, I'll very quickly run up against questions that I can't answer on my own.
So I'm writing to the North American Regional Organizing Group (copied to the Montreal group) in order to be put in touch with an appropriate representative and/or pointed to the formal procedures for moving forward with this.
Thanks in advance.
