Previous: Wiki:

Update by Attilla In april no reachout because of Corona. Mails to previous sponsors where done. There are two interested. There will be a wiki page with a sponsor document. The idea is we hope everyone can reach out to potential sponsors.

Question: should we request for sponsors via social media Answer: Various answers. - Amongst: this might work with warm contacts, otherwise might sound like a cashgrab. - Raising awareness works, don't ask contacts publicly over social media - Asking specific organizations/people in public over social media might not work

Action: Attilla will share the wiki page over mail, next week. There *might* be some hardcopies on the field, bit tje PDF is already on the wiki anyway ;)

Presale tickets/(coupons)vouchers

Update by Attilla No, not vouchers", but partial ticket payments. For example 40 euro. So there is more time to save up for it. And it's clear how many people will attend the event. Will help with estimates.

There are enough cash reserves till ticket sales will open.

Question: what is holding us back from selling tickets today? Answer: technically we can open the ticket shop. We don't have the ticket price yet. There are some large unknowns.

Remark: it shows early commitment, creates a bit of buzz.

Question: will there be ccc-style vouchers, so you're in front of the queue (will we sell out) Answer: We don't know, that's why this subject is on the agenda.

Question: What do we do when "2021" has to be cancelled Answer: We have set go/no-go moments, around the time we want to open the shop, near december. With low ticket sales there is another go/no-go moment. In case we have to cancel very close to the event, we'll have a number of protections in contracts. And there are of course like money back to people who bought a ticket.

Someone summarizes: administrative effort versus knowing commitment.

Conclusion: we can try it out. Run till december.
