Well, our last location was indeed great from the perspective of hosting 
the conference and the location/weather, but for what it's worth, a few 
points I brought up during the Summit:

1) We are an international organization, and I think that rotating 
locations around the globe helps emphasize that to the outside world.
2) Rotating locations can also help those outside of the US and Europe 
to feel more included and considered.
3) Hosting the conference closer to Asia may help get better 
representation from that part of the world.
3) Albufeira is a pain in the ass to get to and adds substantial travel 
time for most participants - thereby increasing the level of commitment 
required and likely reducing overall participation.
4) RE: the above, the location should be a major transportation hub 
(would also help reduce costs).
5) From my perspective, it only seems fair to share the burdens of 
travel among us over the years.
6) Brazil was the overwhelming choice of participants last year.  Unless 
there's a good reason to choose otherwise, the people have spoken.

Just my thoughts.  I'll participate wherever it is.
