    VATSIM UK Live! 2018

     

    https://live.vatsim.uk

    We are delighted to announce that this year’s VATSIM-UK Live! event will take place on the weekend of the 4th and 5th of August at Conference Aston.

    Live! is an annual real-world social event which is organised to allow VATSIM members, be that Pilots or Controller’s, to meet and work alongside each other. During the event, attendees will be working together in close proximity, which adds a new element to "as real as it gets".

    Our venue, Aston Business School, is home to a purpose-built conference centre and on-site hotel with plenty of space, and high-speed Internet for us to use. It's a great location in Birmingham city centre, close to road, rail and air links. During the weekend, we will be focusing ATC services at major (and not so major) airports so that members not in attendance will be able to enjoy the weekend too.

    Tickets will be go on sale in the next few weeks and will be available to any VATSIM member. We look forward to seeing new (and not so new) faces at this year's event. The number of places is limited, so when the tickets are available, please book early to be sure of a place!

    Chris,

    Why has a mid summer date been chosen again? We RW bods struggle to get leave as it's peak season, and thus cannot attend. On top of this, it tends to clash with things like holidays as its the first week of school holidays. And then, it's generally decent weather so people don't want to be cooped up indoors. 

    I thought this was all fed back from last year? I don't want to detract from what is obviously a difficult event to organise, but if Aston aren't willing to be flexible on dates, then why aren't we looking at another venue?

    I'll hopefully be a MSM XII. Its a shame there's a clash, but hopefully it can be resolved?

    Clashing with mid-summer madness I see? https://cts.vatsim.uk/bookings/calendar.php?month=8&year=2018 

    But perfect dates for me! :D 

    perhaps that was the point? ;)

    I won't be coming this year, but I'll probably control somewhere! If I can make it, will there be a Mil desk? ;)

    It certainly wasn't the point; I presume that this was the most viable weekend in terms of cost and availability of the organisers.

    Looking forward to a fun weekend!

    Have to agree with James, the dates are peak season for us in the RW Industry. 

    Trying to get the dates off even if we wanted to is problematic as the announcement falls after roster cut off dates for early August.

    Will this be getting any form of advertising on .net (forum/website), or on CTS calendar perhaps? 🙂
