Today I went to the Thon Hotel and signed the contract for the organisation of the Profoss on 9&10 october. Until now it was booked but needed a contract signed and a confirmation (by means of a payment :-)
It's good that I went to the hotel with Gerry, who will organise the network and visitors badges, as we discovered that the hall where I wanted to organise the coffee breaks and sponsor stands was in fact not exclusive to our event.... By luck, we can get a room beside the one we had, but by paying a supplement of course.
It's also a mess with the exclusivity contracts those hotels have with network providers.... It's 20€ per day for wifi for one computer! An event having 100 visitors for 2 days wanting to propose WIFI to it's participants would have to pay 4000€! It's really not reasonable. I hope to get a better deal (though other hotels in Brussels refused to even talk about group price).
