as long as you are a one-man-show, responsible for your own and just 
your own budget and reimbursement I absolutly agree Sirko.
BUT if you take care and be responsible for a wider area as well as more 
events and people, it is imho mandatory that you get all responsible of 
each country (either they are nominatd or not) to one place to get 
things and numbers done. And it is worth, that such a meeting happens 
because it brings a quality of numbers which are the budget for Red Hat 
for a complete year with a difference of maybe 10% between forecast and 
reality. This is what we did in the past years when FAD Rheinfelden in 
EMEA happened.
