Givethers of the Galaxy will converge in Istanbul next month for DevConnect, and it’s a great time and place for us to bring our family, and our family’s families, together.
We will unite for one week of Giveth workshops, local touring activities, and daily communing over the feasts to be prepared for us and shared with one another. We will accomplish great things.
The GivConnect Pretreat will conclude on November 12th, and Giveth contributors shift to focus energy on DevConnect events. Accommodations will continue throughout the duration of both GivConnect and DevConnect.
Please help us NOT OVERSPEND on lodging. We are renting a combination of 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and 3 bedroom suites. I will do my very best to meet your needs for personal comfort and getting good nights’ sleep. To do this, I need to know what they are
Of great importance is understanding how many rooms we can release sooner, so departure dates for each person are needed.
Flights and Shuttles:
If you haven’t yet, please - book your flights ASAP to keep costs down; and submit the receipts for event budget tracking. We will announce shuttle options for getting to your Classy Suite from the airport closer to the event.
Turkey has amazing food. We are not looking to bring in a chef, rather to find a person, team, or restaurant/s that can take on meal coordination and provisioning locally.
We are doing our best to arrange breakfast and lunch at a restaurant below the hotel, where we can meet and eat all together. There will likely be other restaurants or eating spaces that will cater for our dinners - more to come on this as we review menus and pricing.
Yes, you guessed it - this space will soon be populated by a form to consider the many options that I know you all will be providing below regarding What The Heck Are We Doing In Turkey Together?
Reply below with your thoughts, suggestions, questions or concerns so we can consider and make some decisions.
