    I'm not sure about Budapest either yet.
    If I can make it into the ASOP then I'll almost certainly go... but that's a very big IF! :rolleyes:

    Not going to Copenhagen as we are away on holiday!

    Just a side note - CAP has nothing to do with it anymore.

    I would love to go but am staying home this time for personal reasons - had to turn down an offer to speak at Copenhagen too, although I have a lot to say...

    I would really like to be at that meeting to hear what you have to say on that subject Bryan but obviously since I am the poorest affiliate for 2009 :( (is there an award for that title?) I cannot make it of course...:(

    Is there any way possible I could get you to send me a video disk or a transcript of your speech that you are going to give so I could read or listen to what the Meister has to say? It would be much appreciated...:notworthy

    Yeah, whatever...then the conference previously known as CAP Euro :rolleyes:

    Seriously, it's another bad decision to place a conference a week before another major event. How in the hell are small operators/businesses (like CM) supposed to cover both? It's not like Budapest is right around the corner from Danemark.

    There are a number of reasons why I'm not going; that's only one of them. I've got stuff going on at home anyway...

    /rambling commentary

    Back to the original topic: any recommendable hotels?? :D

    They usually upload the power point presentations after the conference. I'll send you a copy of it when it's finished.

    I'm looking at the following - they all seem fairly central to Tivoli Gardens, Nyhavn etc but it's some time since I was last in this city:

    Imperial
    Scandic Copenhagen
    Copenhagen Strand
    Grand
    Norlandia Mercur
    Best Western Richmond
    Phoenix

    If you get a good one let me know please! I will be there to cheer you on during your speech :) BTW Budapest isn't that far I managed to get a really short cheap flight. Most Operators I speak with are not unhappy about the closeness of the events at all from what I hear most never go to or planned to go to EiG anyway.

    I believe a good central point to stay is in the vicinity of the Tivoli Gardens, and there are a raft of 3 and 4 star hotels in that area judging by the Booking.com website.

    The Imperial, Grand, Scandic Copenhagen, Astoria and many others are close together from what I can see.

    OK Dom so are you saying that 100% for sure that CAP nor any of its previous owners benefit financially from the conferences organized by Alex?

    Just been wondering about this but nobody seems to know for sure.

    I had a great time in Budapest this was the best I think ever conference for me BUT Copenhagen was also very good only because I got to get the Meister drunk and take advantage of him in a cage..:lolup: JK JK.... he had the ward off all evil shirt on for protection... We did have a great time at a nice small Irish pub and at a dinner sponsored by Intertops. The Rosie MeGee's pub was the best get together out of the 2 trips I think because it was small and not a crazy club party where you cannot hear each other talk. Copenhagen reminds me of a mixture of Amsterdam and a bunch of corner pubs in the USA only much more expensive!!

    Bryan was great seeing you again and see you soon! Greedy can you arrange caged rooms on our next get together?:thumbsup:

    Had a good meal at Rosie McGee's one night but the next time I visited that pub it was so packed you couldn't get a drink, and the noise level was impossible.

    However, all was not lost because Bryan had recce'd a really good alternative just down that street full of pubs -can't remember what it was called, but it had more ambience and some great underground vaulted rooms....and even its own brewery. That was the coolest spot in Copenhagen imo.

    And there was a really good tapas restaurant called the Biscaya only a couple blocks from the hotel that would be worth a second visit imo.

    The city was very efficient, clean and charming but maybe not as exciting as Barcelona for me, although I really liked the pavement cafes, Continental atmosphere and the friendliness of the Danish folks, all of whom seemed to speak excellent English (which always makes things easier for the linguistically challenged like me!)

    And I've never seen so many people of all ages riding bicycles....that must keep a lot of them fit.

    I can recommend the boat tour of the canals and waterways - that was interesting and very informative.

    But my word it was an expensive city!
