Hopefully we'll see HostingCon move outside the states sooner or later. It's very peculiar for a global service conference to be stuck in one or two cities. Toronto, for me, is the best place in North America for a conference of any decent size. Hotels galore, international airport, lots to do. Heck, Montreal would be great, Halifax too (if it's good enough for two presidents, it's good enough for me
Unfortunately, it appears HostingCon is going to remain a US based conference for the time being.
