[openstack-dev] Save the Date- Queens PTG

0 votes

We are excited to announce the September Project Teams Gathering in Denver, CO at the Denver Renaissance Stapleton Hotel this September 11th-15th.

As mentioned at the Atlanta PTG feedback session in February, we had narrowed down our PTG location options to Denver and Montreal. Based on attendee feedback we received in Atlanta, we knew keeping room rates down was a priority and are excited we were able to negotiate a $149/night for attendees in Denver versus nearly $200/night in Montreal.

We are sensitive to international travel and have heard and understand concerns regarding both travel to and from the U.S. amidst political uncertainty. We are reviewing options for remote participation for those unable to join us in person. Moving forward, we are planning to host the February/March 2018 PTG in Europe. Stay tuned for additional information on future locations for the PTG and look forward to Sydney in November 2017 and Vancouver in May 2018 for the upcoming OpenStack Summits.

We will share registration and sponsorship information soon on this mailing list. Mark your calendars and we hope to see you in Denver!

According to xe.com (my favourite currency exchange rate website) $140
USD is equivalent to $189 CDN (Canadian currency), and $200 CDN
(Canadian currency) is equal to $147 USD.

Sound like a difference in room rate of about $10 per night in Canadian
currency and $7 per night in US currency.

I must be missing something.

Thank you,
Anita.

My mistake I mis-read, $149 USD is equal to $201 CDN (Canadian
currency), so it looks like the same price to me.

Thanks,
Anita.

I believe (although I do not know for absolute certain) that the prices
given were already normalized to USD. So it wasn't $149USD vs $200CDN it
was $149USD vs $200USD.

It is, of course, worth clarifying.

I take offense to the idea that USD is considered normal, especially
when referencing hotel rates in a Canadian city. $ means dollar, it
doesn't mean USD as a default and Canadian only if we feel like it.

Are we still an international organization?

I further question that you were unable to get any Montreal hotel to
take a substantial piece of business for anything less than $270 CDN.
That seems very usual to me.

Thank you,
Anita.

I believe he means normalized in the programming sense. Like for the
sake of comparison.
