+1 for Columbus.  Its a very underrated city, plus JacobsMirror has done an amazing job of hosting here.

I can get down with Columbus. Wont be able to make it to the upcoming meetup due to work, so a Columbus keycon would be just as good.

Poll added to get this moving along.  It will be up for 30 days... hopefully something is determined before then though.

Added organizers along with the city.  Didn't see where woodkeys offered Austin, but added him based of an early post.  If I missed any let me know and ill add it to the poll.

I think that having multi choice spreads it out too far and gives a less accurate view of the vote.  If more people want multivote I will add it as an option.

I cant confirm this, but please do not create alt accounts simply for voting.  There are approximately 6 brand new accounts that have casted votes in the poll.  This isn't a competition and just makes it unfair to the people that will be hosting.

I think multi allows people that are willing to travel to more than one of those cities to give an accurate representation of where people want? Also allows for me to cast my vote toward something else that might be a B for me but definitely do not want to go to C.

I agree with this; for instance, I voted for Columbus but Philly is a whole 1 minute further from me as far as traveling goes. Id definitely attend at either place, but had to make a choice when both are viable options for me.

Okay, I updated it to two votes per member, and set the poll for 7 days.  Next week ill put up a new poll with 'finalists' to narrow down the final choice.  Not sure if ill do top two or three, any opinions?

I would expect a number close to 100, but recent meetups ( NorCal, SoCal, Seattle, etc) show this number could go up to near 200.

keycon is traditionally a smaller event than the big reddit meetups, but honestly it's hard to tell

has puddsy gotten an award for person most involved with things hes not involved in at all, yet?

My company, a large NYC-based website creation company, would love to host KeyCon 2018. It would probably not be able to do so before July though, if we want to do it right.

We already have hosted many Meetups and the venue is really nice.

I can talk more about this in private.

Cheers,

2017 had some really fantastic meet-ups that were very well attended and even sponsored with vendor donations. I think each of the following locations are easy to get to and have a large and active group that would love to host.

New York City
Philadelphia
Los Angeles
Washington DC
Raleigh/Durham
Atlanta
Charleston
Austin
Houston
Seattle
Chicago

Big airports and direct flights are nice but cost of hotel is high and rental cars and such are a factor. We have a large range of people from broke students all the way up. On the other hand, there have been some really great meets that were actually quite difficult to travel to as well - like Asheville, NC where we had no major airport, expensive hotels, long drives, and no real local support group... yet I think we all had a lot of fun and quite a few people made the journey out to the mountains.

I think there is a happy medium for finding a place that has a popular airport with reasonably priced flights and hotels... and just as important, something cool that people would love to go do before/after the meet in smaller groups. Heres some places that have a lot of extracurricular activities and an easy airport but aren't your major metropolitans

Charlotte
Denver
Albuquerque
New Orleans
Nashville

Probably the best flight deals are always to Las Vegas or Orlando... probably have some really easy "group event" options too but I dunno - from what I've found, most of us are the 'chill, craft beer, indie rock, black coffee' kinda crew. I'm fairly confident if we decided to meet in someplace obscure like Wyoming, Utah, or Kentucky.. people would still show up.


I like this post!

I LOVE KEYCOOOON!!!

New Orleans is a really really fun city that is pretty different than most I've been to so it would be fun to go there if a lot of people are going to actually fly out / road trip for the weekend! It has some really great food, culture, art and music! i haven't been down that way in a few years, but I could probably point people to some great bars and activities down there! It's probably in my top 3 favorite cities to experience. Also has an airport!

Denver would be cool! Airport, weed and hiking!? hell yea.

Idk what is in Albuquerque so no comment there except I'm always down for new places!

Nashville I'm not to keen on.. a lot of people seem to like it I guess but I usually find it preeeetty pretty boring. I'd rather do Gatlinburg or (cough cough) Knoxville! If people are coming to Tennessee. Gatlinburg would be cool to like... rent some cabins for the weekend.

I really liked the space / venue / organization last year! buuuut i think it would be cool to move locations every year for keycon! I can see there being yearly city meetups (like seattle and philly/dc) but i like that keycon bounces around so people in various places get a chance to come out without having to trek across the country every time! Also, if it's in the same area every year I would be less inclined to go. I like new places & faces. :)  I understand you people wanting it close to home .. but I look at KeyCon as something I plan a little vacation for every year. If there are enough people in Boston to want it in Boston because it's where they live.. than y'all can just have a meetup. KEYCON IS A COMMITMENT. AND IT'S THE BEEEEST.

Either way! I do think we should get moving on the poll and stuff. The earlier we can set a date/location, the more affordable things are!

oh. also... I'd be down to help organize around here and in NOLA if people are into it! If I have a couple months, I can totally find a venue and stuff.

I've been toying with the idea of trying to get a meetup started in New Orleans. It might not have the logistics for a keycon this year but maybe we can get a meetup or two done in the area and determine how feasible a successful mk meetup can be in the area.

I have experience and know folks who have orchestrated low cost events around the state of Louisiana, New Orleans included. I just wouldn't want to commit to a major event without trying a smaller meetup first to test the waters.

Here's hoping for New Orleans Keycon sometime 202X!

Cheers,

Considering the timeline, and since KeyCon is slated to occur sometime in June, I think it would be a great idea to have your company host the NYC-local meetup. There was one last August 2017 somewhere near NoHo/East Village. There are some reddit users (/u/TrevorsStar, /u/shadowdude777, /u/xine007, and /u/Stevencz) who organized this meetup.

More details about the last NYC meetup here. https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/6p4ypv/nyc_mechanical_keyboard_meetup_august_5th_300pm/

There was a great turn-out, so it'd be fantastic to have more options for venue spaces for future meetups.

My vote went for Philadelphia. It was pretty good last year and I think we can build on that momentum. Philly also doesn't have its own meetup group, so you don't get the crossover you would with NY, DC, or Boston.

If it's in Columbus I'm 50/50 on whether or not I can carve out the time. I might make a road trip of going to to some museums in Pittsburgh and stopping at Falling Water on the way over.

People seemed to enjoy the poster I made last year, so once we nail down a location I'll start in on some designs a little earlier this year.

Portland Keycon would be amazing just saying.

Excellent airport that's usually pretty cheap to fly to and easy to get to/from,
awesome food + drink scene that doesn't break the bank
Legal....herbs
Pretty affordable housing in town!
Badass public transit: no need to rent a car.

And maybe have it at the same time as PDXLAN.

Seems like the best plan is for cities where there have been prior successful meetups, encouraging more cities to start hosting meetups. Having said that, I heard Austin had a successful meetups last year.

Also a good option, although I'd prefer Milwaukee between the two.  ;)

Okay so initially this was just a joke, but then jacobsmirror started looking into venue options in Pittsburgh and now he and att1cus have agreed to co-host the meetup in Pittsburgh if desired.  So we'd have a slightly more population-central location for those driving in, and a killer combo of hosts for the event.  I've never been to Pittsburgh, but I've heard great things about its recent revitalization efforts, so it seems like a great option. 

My current thought is to go forward considering Pittsburgh as the final-round city, in place of a merged Columbus and Philadelphia, and have that go against Atlanta for one final round of voting.  Does anyone have strong feelings against this?  Discuss.

I'm down for Pittsburgh, sounds like a great compromise, plus 2 proven organizers.  :thumb:
