Wikimania 2007/Las Vegas

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

At this point in time, the Las Vegas Wikiproject is discussing how much interest there is for hosting this event. I expect this page to change as more information becomes available. 19:29, 10 January 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Remember, the world is watching. Lots of encouragement. What a lovely idea! --Bronwyn Gannan 03:43, 30 January 2006 (UTC).[reply]
Well, in terms of time/scheduling, it should take place during the summer. That way, we're paying rather modest airfare and hotel accomodation. (Wikipedia user Vegasrebel29)

I don't know how much real interest there is with the Las Vegas venue, but I would be willing to both attend if held there as well as help with the organizing committee. Certainly there is the hotel space, scenic places to visit, and conference rooms available to host such an event, and as said there is a view on the part of the Nevada government to want to encourage "high tech" opportunities and diversify the Las Vegas economy. How much that translates to Wikimedia groups is another question. --Roberth 16:19, 16 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
