I work for a digital arts center in Leicester in the east midlands and am very keen to host an event similiar to the expo 74 in england.
I believe we have an ideal venue which is centrally located and easily accessable from Leicesters train and bus station. I would also be able to offer cheap 24 hour parking, onsite catering and a possible deal for cut price accomodation with a local hotel.
We are a modern building with several good spaces and great technical support with a good track record of hosting events similiar to this for 100+ people.
My main question is would there be enough interest in this to make it viable?
Is this something that people would travel to attend, I think the event would have to be ticketed but I am keen to keep the cost to a minimum as i'm much more interested in people coming.
Anyway, just throwing the idea out there, it would be really great to hear from people that would be interested in attending this type of event, and also anyone that might be interested in getting involved.
