The Plone Foundation board of directors is pleased to announce that we've chosen Budapest as the location for Plone Conference 2009!
We received two *outstanding* bids this year, Budapest and Barcelona. It was a very difficult choice. In the recent advisory vote, Plone Foundation members voted 57%-43% in favor of Budapest, but there was lots of enthusiasm and positive feedback for both proposals.
We'd like to thank both the Budapest and Barcelona conference teams for all the hard work, creative thought and energy they put into their proposals. These were two of the best conference proposals we've ever seen, and a testament to the vitality, enthusiasm and organizing capacity of the Plone community.
