I sent out a quick email to some of the various community members yesterday regarding their thoughts for a Pentaho Europe Community Gathering somewhere later this summer.

The general consensus was that it was a good idea... so I'm now on the hunt for peoples ideas about location, last years meet was in Mainz, Germany, so personally I think it should be somewhere else, different town, different country(as long as its not the UK, this is my excuse for a holiday).

So far Cologne has been suggested(yes I know its Germany, I'm just passing along the ideas) along with Amsterdam or Brussels, but as this is a European event there are obviously plenty of other potential venues. The general rules being, somewhere commutable from an international airport, somewhere where we can find a venue to do some talks/presentations(Uni, hotel function room etc), and of course somewhere with a decent amount of beer.
