Koha World Tour - FINAL Itinerary

The Koha World Tour is on!

The itinerary has been finalised and the flights paid so on the 21st August I will setting off on my trip to visit Koha community members around the world.

I will speaking at user group meetings, attending conferences, visiting a 'go live' Koha site and attending a hack fest - oh and talking with lots and lots of people!

Sadly though, I have not been able to accept all offers of hospitality. Once the draft itinerary had been prepared I realised that I just could not visit everyone and I had to trim the trip back to 3 months and a manageable budget. Reluctantly I had to end the tour at San Francisco which means that Nunavut, Ohio, Chicago, Utah, Texas and Argentina didn't make the final cut.

The final itinerary can be viewed here and it shows who the local hosts are coordinating each leg of the journey.  As details of Koha events come to hand the timeline will be updated.

I extend my sincere thanks to the generous vendors who have made this trip possible. These include the following but there are others whom I havn't picked up on yet as I don't have a good handle on the groups or organisations who are supporting this trip - just the individuals! (I'll add them to the list if someone can give me a poke)
