[ETC 2019] 2019 Host Bids - Applications

Fellow ETC people,

A new year approaches and with that it is time for 2019 host bids. Just like last year this topic is only for those who are interested in organising the 2019 ETC. An example for a potential host cadidacy post can just have something like;

ETC 2019 - Turkey (Ankara)

When everybody interested posts here we will have a good idea of who is thinking about hosting the ETC.

The deadline for applications will be the end of January. You do NOT need to have a complete proposal by the end of the month. You will have until the end of April to finalise your bid package and after that we will have a vote. There should be enough time to finalise bids and the potential candidates can reach out to the chairmen about questions and proposals before they are posted online.


DEADLINE to post Candidacy for ETC 2019 Host Nation is January 31st.

DEADLINE to post Final Bids for ETC 2019 Host Nation is April 30th.


Vote for Host Nation 2019 will be held straight after that with a closing date of May 11th.

PS: Feel free to get in touch with any or all of the chairman for feedback/ advice about their potential candidacy. Time over the phone can be spent to facilitate things if need be. Just let us know if that's the case.

This is NOT a discussion thread but a place to collect candidacies for ETC 2019 Host Nation. Looking forward to seeing the applications!

See you here in May,

The Chairmen

Although the deadline to declare candidacies has passed. The Chairmen Board has decided to accept applications past the deadline for a while. If you are interested in declaring candidacy, do post below.

Can you put a deadline on the extension at least or are we going to have this run indefinately until you guys arbitrarily decide it has been enough?

Is there any view on possible extra candidates or are you basically living on hope extra bids will come in? If the first and people need more time to get to the basics then great. If the latter this is a silly decision.

Imo it is a very bad call to delay these proceedings. It takes a lot of time to properly prep organising an ETC. Over the years we have gone from a November vote to an April bid submission. That is a very bad evolution imo as organising an ETC becomes more and more complex and challenging but there is less and less time to account for it...

It was considered but the venue there is waaay to expensive. Can probably be done, but it will reflect on entry price...

I can't remember the exact prices but wasn't novi sad a lot cheaper than Athens/Salamanca?

If the increase in price for the potential to visit a new city, then I wouldn't mind paying a little more than I did for Salamanca.

Belgrade venue is about 30000 euros, Novi Sad venue is about 10000 euros. The rest is almost the same. It might be lowered somewhat but not too much I think. If there is a lot of interest we can retry negotiations that we had few years before.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply, Romania is also interested in posting a bid for hosting Etc 2019.
