TTT bidding[edit]

Hi all, @VVIT WikiConnect Coordinators: this year CIS-A2K is inviting communities to host the 2019 iteration of Train the Trainer. It has opened up a bidding process for the communities to propose to host the event. Since we have experience in organising a wide range of activities over an year, I believe we are in good position to host the event in Andhra Pradesh. For the organising, I propose the present coordinators who already have event organising experience along with User:KCVelaga to guide us. We can propose a bid upto 30 Jan 2019, starting from 15 Jan. I have Vijayawada or Vizag in mind. Both of these are good options, but let us decide on one before we propose. To keep the process transparent, please add your opinion here. We’ll finalise on 16 January 2019, and propose the bid by 25 Jan 2019. Sumanth699 (talk) 15:56, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

FYI, please see the bids page, CIS-A2K/Events/Train the Trainer Program/2019/Bids. KCVelaga (talk) 15:59, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
I suggest Vizag. Though Vijayawada and Vizag are equally well connected by road and rail, Vizag has better air connectivity. So Vizag is better. We'll have more options for venue there than Vijayawada. Though it is relatively more distance for us, I don't think it is big problem. We can figure it out.

I second Navya's opinion. Because of better air connectivity and also several options that are available for stay. SuswethaK (talk) 09:43, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Vizag seems to be a better option for me as well. However, as Navya mentioned we need to figure out the logistical problem. Since we have regular buses from Vijayawada for every 1-2 hrs, and journey is just an overnight travel (~7hrs), it shouldn't be a big problem to coordinate. Relatively we'll have more options at Vizag than in Vijayawada. Nivas10798 (talk) 17:15, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
@MNavya, Nivas10798, and SuswethaK: Thanks for your opinions by taking them into consideration, we will fix Vizag as the city to organise TTT. MNavya please notify the Telugu community and also our members about this and then we’ll start the compiling details to propose the final bid. Sumanth699 (talk) 15:05, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
