They only bought Sparky this year, they didn't even bid for the Sparky available at the next conference. My guess is that you should at least be able to be amongst the final bidders if you sell your house and car just before the next conference...

Define cheaper - do you mean a cheaper hotel or country? In theory, I like the idea of moving the conference, so that local developers can attend. My country, Norway, could be excluded due to few Firebird developers, high prices and probably that it is so remote from many European countries. I noticed that the word 'European' weren't on the posters this year, does that mean that the venue isn't even restricted to Europe? And, are there lots of persons who want to host conferences in 2009 or only a few, if any?
