    There are only two reasons, IMHO, that people go to (un)conferences:

    1. To learn something new.

    2. To network.

    In particular, at an unconferences, speakers who are not established get a chance to speak and present new ideas. Fresh speakers; fresh ideas!

    > Where should the event take place?

    I think there are two key points here:

    1. The location must be very easily reachable from the EU and US.
    1.1. There must be at least one (ideally, many more) low-cost airline that flies there.

    2. Accommodation very near by must not be too expensive (EUR 40 to EUR
    60 per night).
