    We don't have any plans at this point to do a HostingCon in the UK or anywhere else outside the US. That may change, but at this point, we're sticking with one per year here in the US.

    I have heard of plans for a European HostingCon, organised by a WHT member, although I cannot remember who it was who was supposedly organising it. IIRC, Amsterdam was looking the likely venue.

    I think a London based hostingcon would be a fantastic idea - I'd get to write off a trip back to visit home...

    Sounds like an alright idea for us Brits, but... If it's going to be in Europe shouldn't it be somewhere which is accessible for all?...Nah, London will do. Or hell go for London#2. Otherwise known as Birmingham.

    I haven't heard, but someone may be planning something for Europe, but it would not be a "HostingCon" unless we produce it.

    That being said, we have looked at doing a HostingCon in Europe but we do not have any plans yet at this point.

    I best there would be more than a few people up for that, including me. Maybe I will just save all my pennies this year and get a fligh to the USA for this years - looking at all the photos from last year it looks like a worth while expericence and there are a few people I would like to meet face to face.

    What are you talking about ?

    Anyway there is already an equivalent in the UK and has been for the last 6 years - Internet World, which largely each year degenerates into ISPs meeting up looking at a few stands, and ending up in O'Neals enjoying large amounts of alcohol...

    While I'm sure there are some good networking opportunities at Internet World, from what I can see on their website, this looks like a completely different type of show than HostingCon. Internet World seems like it's targeted towards people who need internet-related services who work for businesses and such to be attendees.

    HostingCon is targeted at hosts themselves to be attendees. The conference program and exhibit hall are all geared towards those in the hosting business. It looks like hosts would probably be exhibitors (or maybe attendees to check out the competition, etc.) at Internet World.

    Having been to 5 of them, it's mostly large hosts and people selling things for hosts exhibiting, and hosts/website owners that visit.

    The show is secondary to most of us to the "networking" that goes on in the bar ... its just a "reason" to fix a date to get together.

    I think the last topic on this, had about 5 who wanted to com to such an event. Not a real great start I think.

    Adam/iRacks suggested A'dam (what's in a name?), but it would also be a good moment to finally visit London

    You can get a flight to Vegas from the UK for £650 ish... which is a bargain.

    Hosting Con is the perfect excuse for a business expenses trip to Vegas!

    Im actually currently in Australia so my flight to Vegas is going to cost £1200+ ... im still going for sure!

    why not use the XcEL Centre in Docklands London, FANTASTIC PLACE. Or Paris, us UK people could get there by Eurostar but again more cost.

    The problem with these events is that they end up a bit a bit like the stag rutting season.

    Don't forget it's a good place to stock the stationary cupboard for the next year as well

    I've found that Internet World has really refocussed to Mobile Internet technologies over the last couple of years.

    However, one thing it has taught me is that Rackspace really do have fanatical support
