Interesting suggestion. If over 20 people come, the introduction will take quite a while, so it's better for people to write it themselves.

Also, I gotta think of something if this event becomes popular. With 30+ people it would be difficult to support one conversation circle. Maybe attendees will split into groups. I guess we will require a bigger room if that happens.

P.S. The next iteration of PC shall take place at NordicFuzzCon2016, so if anyone is coming, drop by!  ;)

Maybe we can made it more like a meet then or something. I mean like, we meet and walk around in the room talk with this and that person. (Hmm don’t know, I felt maybe so we could come more into conversation with each other.)
 I was at a polyglot meet-up in Zürich and there we made it like this, that we wrote down the languages we can and then we talked to each other, but mother tongue and English wasn’t allowed. (Oh maybe we could make something like that too. I’m not sure if we should do that all the time, maybe a part of it. Don’t know, if people would like to do that.)
Anyway I think you should choose 3 hours or so, for your meet-up. (I don’t know how long it went, after I was gone)

Ok, I've sent a request. I expect to run this event once again this year.

I requested a timeframe in the evening, so if you work in the Dealers' Den you would have an opportunity to attend.

I will try to make it more like a meet 'n greet kind of event. A projector will be set up to show some language-related videos in the background to set up the atmosphere.
Also, I will bring some learning materials, including some vintage Soviet German language textbooks. And I encourage you to bring your language-related stuff to show to people.
