 More  than  pressurizing  IAH  big  shots,  its  a  matter  of  getting  the  Mumbai  folks  organised  and  able  to  spare  enough  time  and  effort  to  get  it  done  well.
 
 Not  an  easy  job  and  of  course,  the  "big  shots"   have  already  declared  willingness  to  allow  other  locations  to  organize.
 
 Don't  get  me  wrong,  I'm  not  saying  it  can't  be  done  but  we  need  to  do  our  homework  before  starting  to  "pressurize"  Smile
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 You  are  absolutely  right.  Personally,  I  really  don't  think  that  I  would  be  able  to  take  out  enough  time  from  my  job  to  organize  the  event  properly....But  if  all  of  us  in  Mumbai  get  together  and  plan  and  divide  the  work,  we  might  be  able  to  achieve  it.....of  course  with  a  little  help  from  IAH-ians  from  other  cities.   Thumb Up

 The  Admins  cannot  visit  a  city  2-3  times  to  help  organise  Aquatika.  Impossible.
 
 We'll  help  out,  but  the  organisation  has  to  be  entirely  from  the  city  hosting  the  event.  Firstly,  you  need  a  team  of  8-10  dedicated  people  who  are  willing  to  shoulder  any  financial  loss.  There  should  be  a  minimum  of  30  participants  from  the  host  city  itself,  don't  expect  30  people  from  Bangalore  if  the  event  is  from  Mumbai.  It  is  difficult  to  get  30  people  from  one  city  who  are  willing  to  pay  the  Registration  fees,  believe  me.
 
 IAH  is  not  looking  at  profits  out  of  Aquatika  2008,  that's  what  we  will  be  monitoring.
 
 There  will  be  help  from  all  Admins  to  help  make  good  any  anticipated  shortfalls  as  much  as  possible,  not  cash  contributions  but  by  some  other  means.  We  don't  want  people  forking  out  money  from  their  pockets  for  Aquatika.  Break  even  is  what  is  expected.
 
 FYI,  getting  one  outstation  speaker  from  within  India  cost  us  about  Rs.  12000  this  year.  This  amount  was  not  factored  into  the  registration  charges.  The  Registration  charges  only  made  good  the  Venue  Expenses  +  expenses  for  the  gift  hampers,  and  nothing  else.
 
 We  had  a  discussion  about  having  Aquatika  at  Mumbai  with  Ranjit  Pai  and  having  attended  Aquatika  twice,  he  knows  what  Aquatika  is  all  about.  Suneal  has  attended  Aquatika  4  times.
 
 It  will  be  better  for  the  organisers  from  other  cities  to  attend  Aquatika  as  a  group  atleast  once  to  get  a  feel  of  what  it  is  all  about.
 
 We  will  be  putting  up  some  guideline  proposals  for  cities  willing  to  host  Aquatika,  it  is  still  being  trashed  out  and  once  ready  it  will  be  put  up  on  IAH.

 Completely  agree  with  you  Madan.  What  you  are  saying  is  absolutely  right.  I  really  don't  expect  the  Admins  to  visit  the  city  twice  or  thrice  to  organize  the  event.  .  Believe  me,  I  have  every  intention  to  organize  Aquatika  at  least  once  in  Mumbai,  and  I'm  sure  it  will  be  rocking.  Where  there's  a  will,  there's  a  way.  If  not  2009,  I'm  sure  we  would  be  able  to  host  Aquatika  2011  in  Mumbai.  Yes,  we  would  need  a  lot  of  guidance  and  inputs  from  you  on  how  to  go  about  it,  what  should  the  best  practices  be,  agenda,  content  etc  etc.  I  will  surely  visit  Aquatika  2009  to  get  some  pointers.
 
 Thanks  anyway.

 Thanks,  Bangalore  and  Chennai  guys  would  surely  like  a  change  of  venue,  Mumbai  is  as  good  if  not  better.
 
 It  will  take  a  couple  of  years  before  another  city  can  host  the  event,  my  bet  is  on  Mumbai  or  Hyderabad  being  the  first,  mainly  because  of  their  proximity/connectivity  to  Chennai  and  Bangalore  which  will  get  more  participants  from  these  cities.  Hyderabad  though  falls  short  now  of  30  participants  from  the  host  city.

 Mumbai-ites.....WAKE  UP.  Are  we  ready  for  this?  Do  we  have  the  fire  in  us????  I  DO.....What  about  you.?  I  am  already  excited.  If  we  plan  each  and  every  thing  to  the  tee  from  now,  Aquatika  2010  or  2011  can  be  a  Rocking  success.  WHAT  SAY??  Do  we  have  30  participants?  Are  we  equipped  with  the  MOJO?

 I  am  ready  for  it.  Though  not  financially  as  I  am  student.  But  eager  to  know  how  I  can  put  in  my  Management  skill  in  the  event  as  what  I  have  done  for  3  years  in  college  Very Happy  
 
 Will  do  what  I  can  do  to  make  this  event  possible  and  successfull  in  Mumbai.
 I  always  wanted  Aquatika  to  happen  in  Mumbai.  Rock On

 Yup,  you  guys  get  together  with  Ranjit  and  Suneal,  Neil  Mandevia,  get  a  feel  of  how  the  event  is  organised  and  what  all  is  done.
 
 A  meeting  amongst  yourself  will  be  the  first  step.

 I  haven't  visited  Aquatika  this  year  and  last  year  I  didn't  even  know  about  IAH  so  I  have  no  hands  on  idea  about  the  event.  But  I  am  definitely  keen  to  help  out  and  be  a  part  of  the  team  from  Mumbai!

 Hi,
 
 Although  i  am  currently  based  in  Delhi,  Have  been  born  and  brought  up  in  mumbai  and  parents  still  live  there.  I  would  love  to  join  hands  with  the  mumbai  team  to  bring  up  a  spectacular  event.  I  can  help  with  the  event  marketing  and  media  relationships.  Also  can  get  sponsors  if  need  be.  
 
 Let  me  know  when  we  want  to  get  the  ball  rolling.
 
 Cheers   Thumbs Up  
 Nirav

 We  got  to  meet  up  first.
 
 Then  plan  the  whole  program  in  detail,  Approach  for  sponsorship  and  explain  what  they  would  benefit  from  this  event,  Budget  Analysis,  Scheduling,  guest  etc.
 
 But  before  all  that  we  need  manpower   Confused
