@KLans_WMF will be TPG'ing this - please be sure to include both her and myself in planning convos :)

There is a digital hub in Lyon "La cordée". They have at least two locations suitable for group gathering:

Liberté / Guillotière
61 cours de la Liberté
69003 Lyon
Presentation (english)
The biggest of their places, apparently have a couple meeting rooms big enough for us.

4 quai Jean Moulin
69001 Lyon
Presentation (French only)
Two meeting rooms for 12 or 25 persons.

Itinerary between both places (OpenStreetMap).

I have mailed the managers of both sites (Opéra: Hugo, Liberté: Philippe) enquiring the availability of a space for 5 days and ~ 10 persons. Will get some more details and a rough quote estimations, then loop back with @Rfarrand and @greg.

Thanks guys! I am also looking at locations outside of Lyon (but close by) at Greg's request. Will get back to the team shortly with some options.

Finalizing contract with venue in Annecy - once I have a first draft I will get a group approval for the trip and we will be able to being booking flights. Hoping for Friday. Monday is more realistic. :)

This task was part of ECT-March-2015, and it is still open and assigned. Assuming that it belongs to ECT-April-2015 as well. Otherwise please edit accordingly.
