    The Online Retailer Event would be best for me, just based on timing, would also help out some with CarParts.com.au

    I've already reg'd for cebit

    Regging for the onlineretailer.net one now.

    Agreeing with Soj, Online Retailer some seem more relevant to those of us with online retailing plans, could also assist with the discovery of the ever so elusive end-users.

    OK guys, let's set a date:

    Thursday 8th July at a pub in the CBD to be advised. This coincides with the Online Retailer event too which will give an extra reason for our interstate guests to attend.

    Still working on a few things (such as the venue & the beer allowance :) ) however I'm delighted to announce, we will have secured a high profile guest speaker for a chat and some Q & A.

    We'll be welcoming Jo Lim, Chief Policy Officer from auDA. Jo will be presenting her and auDA's views on domainers and domaining and will provide invaluable information on AU policy plus some insights into the future of this space.

    The domainer-auDA relationship has not always been as close as it could be, so this is a chance for each side to get a better understanding of the other's viewpoint. I know Jo is keen to demonstrate to everyone that auDA is far from 'anti-domainer' as some people may have you think but on the contrary is as keen to grow the AU space as the rest of us.

    So, now we have a date, let's firm up on numbers... who's in?

    I'm in.

    Would be good to have someone from AUDA there.

    Wow, watch a great catch - hat's off to Jo for agreeing to attend. I've had a number of discussions with Auda recently regarding policy so I welcome hearing Jo's views first hand.

    I've seen the poll - how many people are going? I'm thinking about flying up from Melbourne or in from LAX (not sure where I'll be yet).

    Good stuff, guys. I reckon we should have about 30 people at a guess. Nice work Simon - flying in from LAX - that's commitment!!

    I'll pop in, but for how long I don't know. Depends on the time and whether anything else comes up (wedding or volcano eruption etc)

    Anyone have any good suggestions for a venue. Got a few ideas but I don't go out in the city much these days...

    On that note..anybody heard of coworking? Might be a convenient way to meetup. Apparently it's a new trend...Let's ride the wave :D

    It's also called 'Jelly'.

    OK guys just a reminder to book flights and/or confirm for this event. Also have some special entertainment coming in at 8:30pm :) so please try to get there as early as possible for some great networking before the entertainment.

    Again, please confirm by email PM or FB as I need to confirm numbers next week (as I'm away the week after). Will be a great night!!
