Question

Is this your kinda thing?


My brother has a company that, among other things, promotes tradeshows/conventions. It got me thinking: is there a Web hosting convention/show that's aimed at the sort of folks who frequent WHT (small to mid-size hosts)?

If not, would you be interested in attending such an event provided it was priced within your budget?

It would be something if you could actually get all the webhosters away from their servers to come to this

We'd probably be talking about Orlando, FL USA and in the middle of the year. Attendance fee would include a theme attraction admission as well. Since it's a vacation destination folks can do a working vacation trip and write off the expenses.

That's so unfair only to hold it in one state. You need multiple states if it was going to work

There was a webhosting expo in Washington some time back...
I guess that went off quite well.
There were some real big names there (Microsoft, Hostopia.... )

Have a great day

Regards

I think we'd be going for the small-to-mid hosts.
