Hi there, this one is for the suiters and attendees of last years EF.

As you will remember, last year the parade started at the stage hall, through the lobby, left the hotel through the front door and walked all around the hotel over the parking, to the backside with payground. Then on to the terrasse and stairs with a break for group photo, through the lower level door into the lower lobby, dealers den and back up to lobby, where it ended.

I would like your feedback and if you have any ideas for improvement. The Hotel is not so big that we could walk very far without crossing the same rooms over and over again. And it is surroundes by parking lots, so there isn't very much to see for the suiters and photographs...

well, make yourself heard.

I only would suggest that someone leads the suiters to the stairs so that they can arrange themselfes there for a proper Group Photo.
Last Year we all just stood somewhere between chairs and tables >.>

Not enough stairs for all the suiters ;D I think the route we took is pretty well OK.

I like what LeTigre said.  It would be good to keep the route the same, but to have the suiters pause on the stairs leading down to the barbeque area for some group photos, then continue into the hotel through the lower levels.  As long as the lower area is remained clear of other folks, the photographers can stand far enough back to get some good shots without having people's heads get in the way.

But, it would be good to have someone at the smaller stairs leading up to the playground, as those can be a little tricky getting up in suit.

I agree. The route was good.
I like the idea with the stairs and maybe some help for the vision-impaired on the smaller stairs, so they don't trip.

I like the idea of line-up on the stairs, since everyone will be clearly visible for the mass photo shoot, even the smaller suiters :)

I have anther Idea ... it is very adventurous ... but would us make immortal ... or would at least destroy the world :D

If we would be able to arrange on the stairs and have the photo done,
we could make a short video where we all do the Caramelldansen?
We would just need a camera (maybe there are one or two at the EF ...) and someone in front of the suiters to show the timing.

What do you think? ^^'

I am sure that I am not the only one who would never participate in THAT.
Let alone that the suit doesn't even allow me to lift my arm that much.

I think I've seen your suit somewhere before.

Thank you, those who gave me feedback.
The route will more or less stay the same, with most likely 2 photostops,
one in front of the hotel and one on the terrasse.

Route was ok last year to me.
Just one thing would be to announce it to non suiters that we're going outside and all around the hotel,
as there was almost nobody outside last year.. :)

Beside that a quick stair photoshot on the way definitely sounds good :)
