Just discovered today the dates of the event, as well as the beautiful logo.
I see this was discussed in 
, and I also find the dates to be super early (I found Bonn to be already quite 
early...) and collide with the summer vacation period for I guess most 
Europeans. Not sure about the customs in other parts of the world. IMHO 
there's a risk a significant portion of the European planned attendance might 
not be able to join specifically because of the dates (*). I'm not sure how big 
European attendance is usually for a N.A. event, but I found it was worth 
mentionning it.

Best regards,


(*) I was trying to find some statistics backing that. For France, I found in 
this news article 
"En 2010, environ un salarié sur deux était en vacances pendant la semaine du 
9 au 15 août" --> "In 2010, approximately 50% of employees were on vacation 
during the week from August 9 to 15"
