    Tony – are you anticipating being offered a free venue; or paying for this venue?

  4. Avatar Tony Scott

    Jon – well, ideally we would like a free venue, however we do have a modest budget available.

    I found details of Worldcamp UK 2009 while browsing the web. I work for an agency that provides corporate activities and venues. I have had a look at your brief and I may be able to help on the venue front.

    I just wanted to clarify what budget you were working within for the event, as there is obviously a wide range of venues that could be suitable.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards

    Hi Tony,

    Just to let you know, I’ve been chatting with the organiser of the (newly minted) Manchester WordPress User Group about this and we might be able to sort something out in central Manchester.

    Will be in touch via Twitter…
