    Hi All,

    Several SFers will come to Paris in April for the 2nd edition of the PISC.
    I would like to organize some get together, so that we can all meet up.
    It will be great to see old friends, and meet new ones.

    To get things going, i would like to know how many of you are interested and for what (dinner, drinks, whatever)

    Paris is not a cheap city, so restaurants will need to be chosen with size/price in mind.
    Most of the pubs also offer food options, but it will depend what everyone would like to have.

    I have yet to book my flight!

    P.S. - In my experience over multiple congresses, it is very difficult to get SF bunch to agree to a place and time :)

    Yep, that's right! Still, it's worth a try.

    Thank you @Hexlibris!

    I am have flights all booked for Paris. Arriving on 20th, leaving 24th.

    I haven't finalized the where to stay. Would prefer the Hyatt, which is the venue hotel. In case anyone wants to share the room, I am up for it.

    Unfortunately, I think the Hyatt was full several weeks ago.

    Full? Was there a link on the congress website? I didn't see any link and therefore searched by the hotel name in google. All the booking sites are showing it available for $182 (non refundable) a night. What was congress rate?

    I was going through booking.com; perhaps it was just them showing it as full. I didn't see a special rate for the congress. $182 sounds reasonable, as all the hotels in the area were $100 at least.

    I think the rooms were sold as a package with the various passes, I don't remember them being sold separately.

    The congress posted on FB that party passes will not be sold at the door - although a photo/poster shows advance purchase price vs door price (higher at the door, of course). Either way, I recommend buying your party pass online, at least make sure you're in. Everything else is sold out.

    Thanks, I already bought my party pass, booked the hotel and airport transfer - all yesterday :)

    I did read that they won't be selling the party pass at the door, somewhere. But then on their pricing page or elsewhere they have shown the price at the door for individual night and party pass. Is Thursday included in the party pass? Their single night dancing tickets are the most expensive that I have ever come across at a congress.

    P.S. - I got a good rate for the hotel, but I need to watch if the rate drops since there is a price match guarantee :p

    So what are our SF meet up plans in Paris?
     
  16. I'm down! But then I say that every time but fail to follow through. This time though........count me in for whatever.

    I'm very much a long time forum lurker, however I'd be very interested at the very least to consciously see or dance with any of you on the dance floor :D

    Perhaps we could at least try to find each other to say hello at one of the pre-parties, which won't be as crowded. I'm planning on going to the first one on Tuesday.

    Agree if you meet on the first day, then it is usually easier to track down later. Some of us already know each other.

    I really hope we can get together this time, I would really like to meet all the SFers. It is so much fun meeting the forum members in person rather than exchanging "pleasantries" on the computer. Hopefully I get to meet Flujo and hiken2367.
