I think adding a NZ bid to go with the other two is an excellent idea. Why not have a stellar Kiwi year?

Kia ora koutou,
I'm Kathryn, if you don't know me, I work on the Koha team at Catalyst IT from the Wellington NZ office.
Kohacon2020 you ask? Well, I don't know what I'm doing in 2020 either, but it turns out some people are already making plans :)
I attended a meeting recently because New Zealand is bidding for two international library conferences in 2020, and Kohacon could make it three. The other two conferences that will have bids in from NZ are:
* http://ifla.org/ The International Federation of Library
Associations and Institutions, which some of you may have
attended in Ohio USA this year
* and http://www.iamslic.org/ The International Association of
Aquatic and Marine Science Libraries and Information Centers,
that recently held their annual conference in Mexico.
Koha will be 20 years old in 2020, and some guy who's been working on Koha for a long while started a rumor that we should bring it back here for the big celebration. So, I will follow how the bids for IFLA and IAMSLIC go over the next year, as it's possible we could try and bring the conference dates together. Not that we can do much about it from a Koha perspective until 2019!
I would be curious to hear from any Koha libraries out there who regularly or sometimes attend either of the other two conferences.
