Mark,
Has anyone asked the Grand Poobahs if they are willing to be there 2 days???
AKA; Papa and Son, Sigfried Linkwitz and Jan Didden. I'm sure I've forgotten some other very important people, it's not intentional, I'm old and forgetful.

I strongly suspect they won't be able to. They would need to spend the night and that means a hotel ( although I'm sure people would be happy to open their hmes!) Jan might make it , because he stays with me! But if we're doing seminars, then its only important that the seminar demonstrator/presenter/whatever and the participants show up. Quite possibly people with a new technology or somethin might want t o have a room to demonstrate it on the seminar day..

I'm not considering having 2 days that are like the current Burning Amp.

What a great article! A nice way to do it, IMO.

And not only am I in one of the photos, (red shirt, taking photo) the 'question from the audience' on page 2 is me as well! LOL.

I'm not considering having 2 days that are like the current Burning Amp.
The European Triode Festival is this coming weekend and starts Thursday evening, running until Sunday after breakfast. So that is two full days of presentations, listening sessions (about 7 rooms each with two systems) and even a 'shoot out' between like equipment.

Venue changes every three years and is in places like a convent converted to a convention center, a holiday village or, as this year in Berlin, a university. In other words, a venue with rooms, lodging, restaurant and main hall. Not easy to find for a reasonable budget and limited (ETF is limited to 100 participants). Cost is about $ 350 US for food and lodging.
So you see, if you go from a single day to anything longer will immediately have repercussions.
Organisation-wise, its not something a single guy can do on the side, not even Mark
The ETF team is about 8 persons, including a dedicated IT guy for managing the website and related IT.

I am tempted to hire a local hall (for example, there's an American Legion Hall a couple of doors down from Anchor Electronics in Santa Clara) and host a very limited edition of BA - limited list of presenters (not of listeners), each required to talk about his bit of gear, with schematics, etc, and a presentation of sound on a fixed system with discussion afterwards.

Would this place be suitable for a loudspeaker-focused group of 20-40 people and would you be willing to look into that for me? I am looking for venues in which I can host the next NorCal DIY Audio Group meeting, in April 2013. I'd like t do this somewhere on the peninsula between San Jose and San Mateo. It's largely a speaker building group, so the acoustics have to be pretty good...
