The PRO on that would be that we have a REALLY good Infrastructure.
But I had the experience from meetings here around where participants
are near their workplace that can be contraproductive (e.g. "hold on, I
had a call from ... I need to to do that ... I grab something from the
office, wait)...

All other places sounds good for me ... I did not know any of them ;-)

I throw some thoughts in: I think we did not meet together in THAT
particular group, meaning we had never before a MKTG FAD. We encounter
each other at FADs, Events, Office time, etc. but THAT will be the first
MKTG FAD where marketing stuff came up on the table and get things done.
I think we will become acquainted with each other, know how things work
in one or another part of the world, put together best practices, etc.
Therefore it will NEVER be enough time to do all things. But I think if
it will be possible 3-4 working days withing 1,5 days of planed leisure
plus some spare time would be a good choice.

Hopefully yes ;-)

Put my in the wiki...

hope 2 c u soon :-)
