Reason: We had a lot of bad experience and lost time with broken Hotel/University-WiFis
Hint: the router hides all users behind a NAT, so if there is a per-user-limit in the network of the venue, all participants will have to share it
The upstream connection must allow outgoing VPN connections
Some wired internet connection must be available for those attendees that can't use Wifi.
Video-Projector with HDMI-input and enough to overcome the daylight (Some individuals don't like to sit in the dark)
Whiteboard or Flipchart (with Consumables)
The location should be accessible reasonably by public transport from international locations
This essentially means either an airport with a reasonable number of connections / day or a high speed train station with acces to an international airport.
The meeting venue and the hotel venue can, but do not have to be, in the same location. For the Hotel Venue there is some limit on the price of the hotel nights. The price per night at the Hotel Venue should be:
Around in the 100 Euro / 120 USD to 120 Euro / 140 USD range (including breakfast and Wifi).
In a fairly central location so evening dinner and drinks are in walking distance
If in a more remote location there should be public transport from and to the hotel that is available until around midnight
