    Hi Guys,

    Want to put something together in Sydney where we can all get together like the Melbourne one in February (only better:) )

    Prepared to put some limited resources into making it a fun evening, so wondering if we can have some suggestions to make it a good turnout & networking event. What would you think of

    1. Free beer (obvious I guess!)
    2. 12 Mth Nett Magazine subscription to all attendees
    3. 10,000 Netfleet Credits to all attendees
    4. An expert speaker/seminar (if so, who?)
    5. Live informal mini domain auction
    6. Other ideas???

    Of course the main value from these events lies in just chatting with other likeminded people - networking. However this is dependent on a good turnout so keen to find what would be a drawcard for you?

    Please participate in the poll too!

    Perhaps an SEO firm, ie Bruce Clay? (not him, but someone from his firm)

    Matt Cutts?

    Unless of course you just "park" it!

    Great idea. I'm more likely to attend if the event runs after 5pm.

    Thanks for the responses guys - the poll shows some good interest esp from interstate which is great.

    OK let's lock in:

    1) the beer,
    2) the Nett subscription (most people won't have one I don't think)
    3) weekday evening event

    I'll also investigate a guest speaker of some sort.

    Any other suggestions? Netfleet credits or auction not of interest?

    I'd like to see an Auction.

    I will volunteer some names.

    I wont be interested without reserve though. Perhaps you can ask people interested to submit names for consideration with reserve prices and just take names with realistic prices???

    Well we wouldn't want that :) OK let's throw in some Netfleet credits as an incentive to come too!

    Would be fun if there are enough buyers there. I guess if there are reserves there's no huge risk for the vendors.

    It will probably be in June sometime. Trying to find a 'guest speaker' to work around. Barack Obama's due in Sydney in June but he declined so working on my B-List...

    mmm

    What about Sarah Palin?

    (I still think she is kind of hot....) :eek:

    What about if each of us sells some nice domain names and we make the meetup in Fiji? :D
