But... that's like the main point of traveling, no?  To walk around and see the sights?  Why bother having the meetup in a city at all then?  :P

KeyCon 2014 was in Mountain View, CA.  ;D 

It's only the last few years that have been east coast centric.  Earlier on, it was really hard to get the east coasters to band together for meetups.  I remember that New York of all places didn't have a local meetup until surprisingly late.

Well since I actually had to vote I picked Denver. Atlanta is too sweaty (Plus ATL is the worst airport I've tried to fly out of), and Vegas is too hot (plus there's no way I'll bring enough money to have all of the fun Vegas has to offer).

I don't think Denver or Vegas is a bad choice. Vegas has better infrastructure/public transit options(in my opinion). Denver has prettier scenery. Both have great restaurants and good weather depending on the month. Either way I'm just glad to see some non east coast choices.

With regard to venues - how many people are (likely) showing up and are we looking to book a block of rooms at a nearby hotel?

We're shooting for around 500. And yes, hopefully we can offer a discount at a local hotel.

If I remember this is occurring and depending on if I decide to go to Japan in March vs June (vs pushing it another year) I might try and make an appearance.  It's been a while and I love Colorado.  Mother grew up there and it'd be nice to revisit some of those areas.

I think a lot of people were unhappy with last year's venue. I've heard many folks express their willingness to pay a fee for this year's Keycon if it meant we could secure a venue that was more equipped to hosting an event like ours. I know I'm one of them.

I am in 100% agreement here. As a preface, I understand there was an existing relationship with the Ace Hotel and we were all able to attend for free. That being said...

The Ace Hotel in Manhattan was a very bad venue for this kind of meetup. From the start the entire thing was confusing, people were setting up their belongings, boxes of resin worth thousands of dollars, keyboards worth thousands of dollars, at tables located in the ENTRANCE of the Ace Hotel. I, personally, was informed that the downstairs area was specifically reserved for vendors only, but immediately found folks friendly with vendors placing their personal items on the vendor tables (probably because they realized how absurd it is to leave their belongings upstairs).

Once the meetup got into full swing, it became apparent that the venue was not adequate. Due to the majority of the things being displayed being located in the literal LOBBY of the hotel, people simply staying at the Ace Hotel could be seen walking over to the table with drinks and iced-coffees in hand, often held directly over the keyboards, disregarding signs that say "do not pick up," and even asking people how much certain items were should they want to purchase them. As the day moved along, it became difficult to even move around in the downstairs area due to the sheer number of people as well as the ambient temperature constantly rising (easily 10 degrees F higher than upstairs, and this is at the start of the typical hot and humid New York City summer).

I am 100% willing to pay $15-20 for a ticket where the funds go back to the organizers search for a venue that is comfortable and enjoyable for everyone. I know I'm not alone here.

Yup, noted. And I agree with you on many of those points. Much of which were already brought up when we asked attendees for feedback, but also some of your concerns are just what happens at meetups anywhere.

Ace Hotel was incredibly generous with their time and accommodations for the previous two KeyCons. However, it was increasingly apparent that the event has grown beyond their ability to host. Beyond that, the response for New York was much higher than anticipated and nearly twice as much as the previous year if we would've let the rsvp stay open. That said, as we're hunting for venues, we're making sure that we have a more open floor plan for the main section, consistent lighting, a solution for talks and presentations, and space for 500+. But, with that, we will definitely be looking for ways to cover the cost of the venue through paid tickets, vendor fees, and a few other avenues.

Again, the feedback is appreciated, and the planning committee and myself are working hard getting moving on 2020.

Is there any interest in a switch lubing testing station? It would be a big bowl of Gaterons linears plus several different lubes, brushes, and switch openers. You could spend a few minutes and play around experimenting with different lubes and techniques. Mostly targeted at "beginner/intermediate" attendees but could still be a good opportunity to try something different even for old heads.

This would be super nice. I'm relatively new to the community and there's so many different switches to try and it could answer so many questions too. Maybe have someone do a demo of lubing or something too?

Nope. Atlanta was in the running, but didn't ultimately win. Maybe next year.

Shucks!  Atlanta wouldíve been the ideal location. Cheap flights, great city, friendly, diverse and fun!  I get a sense that sinsemilla had a lot to do with the final choice, which is fine by me. LOL!!!

I am not sure if these questions have been answered but I was not able to find it if so.

Are Vendor tables limited?
If not can vendor tickets be purchased by non vendor attendees to guarantee a table to showcase their collection?
Will general admission attendees be limited on how many boards they are allowed to bring?

Quick question! If I were to buy a half table, and a friend buys another half table, would we be able to put them together?
I know vendors get first pick and all, just wondering!

I do have a cap on all ticket levels based on stats from last year. If certain levels start to sell out, I'll reassess.

Vendor tickets are for vendors. Despite having a lot more space, we are still anticipating a pretty massive crowd.

Two board limit for general admission tickets.

If both you and your friend are vendors, sure, I could make that happen.

Is there going to be an accommodation sharing/etc. thread like previous years?
I posted it in the discord, but I'm not on discord much.
I want to go, but I am just one person, which makes accommodations expensive. I'm looking to split an airbnb or hotel with some peeps.

you're pure evil. i need this set so bad that i'm actually about to pull the trigger on a plane ticket and hotel room to attend the convention just for the set.  ......i'm dead serious.

i mean i'm sure i'll have an absolute blast at the convention in general too, but honestly that set only being available at the con is what got me started on this insane, spur-of-the-moment vacation plan. now....to plan an explanation my boss....

how many tickets total will be available for the event? is there a way to monitor how many tickets are still available at a given time? i'm still trying to figure out if i can make it to the convention so my ticket purchase and hotel booking may be last minute.

I assume you are monitoring the current situation about COVID-19?

I figured I would chime in here, as I've been working on COVID-19 in the Canadian equivalent of the CDC since the very first reports of a novel coronavirus out of Wuhan. This includes working with and supporting a team of epidemiologists with travel expertise, the nurses responsible for quarantines at border crossings and on conveyances, messaging and signage for risk reduction at airports for travellers, and the team that posts up to date outbreak information and risk levels for travellers by country.

To be clear, I'm talking just as a member of the public, and my views here are my own and not reflective of any government or agency or policy. I am not a major decision maker. But I've also worked on this outbreak non-stop, including weekends, nights, etc. from the first reports of the coronavirus to present.

All that can be done at this point is to monitor the situation to determine if there is sustained community transmission in Denver come June. I know the organizers of keycon personally, and have attended several events in the past, and speak with them regularly. They are intelligent and up-to-date on current events, and I have every confidence that should a situation arise where the event needs to be postponed, they will do so. Thankfully, the demographics that are most at risk (the elderly, people with compromised immune systems, and those with chronic conditions) are unlikely to be in attendance.

There are steps that can be taken prior to and during the event that can reduce risk. All attendees should:

Wash your hands regularly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. This is the most simple and important advice anyone can give.

Use alcohol based hand sanitizer

Have antibacterial wipes on hand that can be used to wipe down boards/caps, especially if people are trying them out

Cover your mouth and nose with the crook of your arm while sneezing/coughing

Buy trip cancellation insurance, and ensure that it covers things like cancellations due to infectious disease outbreak (some insurance companies are no longer providing refunds for COVID-19)

Avoid prolonged personal contact, such as shaking hands

Avoid touching your face, nose or eyes

Avoid contact with sick people. If you start to feel sick, isolate yourself as quickly as possible. If you start to feel ill before the event, PLEASE reconsider attending, especially if you are coming from an area with a confirmed outbreak.

Check your travel plans regularly to see if there has been any change in status. This can change very quickly and without much warning.

The truth is that no one has a crystal ball, and the situation is changing so quickly on a day-by-day basis that trying to predict if there is going to be an outbreak that affects keycon is not possible. All that can be done at this point is to practice safe hygiene behaviours, stay informed of current situation, consider the advice of your local health authority, and to make the most comfortable decision possible for you as an individual.

Fear is a normal reaction to this type of outbreak. However, I would ask people not use social media as a source of news for anything COVID-19 related. Perspective is important here. Car accidents kill 37,000 people in the US every year. In comparison, there have been a bit over 3,000 confirmed deaths from coronavirus in all of China, the epicenter of the outbreak. I'm not saying the situation isn't serious, because it is. But when I feel my own anxiety rising, that is something I use to bring myself back down.

EDIT: 6 million car accidents, 37,000 deaths. Sorry, I'm tired!

While your overall recommendations seem great, I have to correct one thing.

There are 6 million car accidents in the US, of which 6% result in death.  (see https://www.driverknowledge.com/car-accident-statistics/)

I have flights booked but if the opportunity to cancel for free comes up Iíll be taking advantage.  Prices have plummeted lately so rebooking will yield a nice savings.
