Why exactly do you need a budget for this (especially the traveling/ hotel part). Why do you need to pay for a location?

Do you have a concept for this? So what topics, which speakers, which target audience, size of event, website, logo, name of event and stuff like this?

If this kind of events are sponsored from the budget, it will become a precedent. Every country want to have budget for a TYPO3 Days - [country] event. As one of the organizers of the Dutch TYPO3 Congres I know that it is difficult to get enough money to organize such an event, but looking at the amount of budget you need, you can surely find some local sponsors. Also traveling costs should be paid by speakers themselves or by the sponsors.

That's the way we have organized it. Also, when we started we used free locations provided by clients. Since two years now we are able to organize the event at a more professional level.

Also, have you thought about asking an entrance fee?

Based on the success of the TYPO3camps in the past (which were all funded by sponsors and entrance fees), I would suggest to organize a TYPO3camp in Poland w/o funding from the T3A. Let me know if you need help/ideas/suggestions for organizing such a camp.

Yes, we decided to create 2 events:
1) TYPO3camp in Poland for developers and others
2) Local event in Poznań University of Technology for students.

@Jochen Weiland - have you got experince in organizing TYPO3camp?
