One reasons could be that by not having an event nearby we would loose
potential speakers and participants.

OSiM is not the biggest and best developer conference I have seen, but
there were some developers attending that were extending the visit to
Berlin to go to the Maemo Summit. And not only developers, it was good
to have Jay Sullivan from Mozilla and he could come because anyway he
was attending OSiM.

OSiM tries to do better with developers every year and my default
assumption is that more developers "in the business" will attend (people
from Collabora, Igalia and other small companies that also have a link
to Maemo.

I'm not saying that we should go for Amsterdam and I'm still seeing
whether does dates make sense in order to show something as cool as the
Maemo community deserve.  :)  But at least they would be reasons not to

By the way, I can prepare a rough summary of the Maemo Summit expenses,
