6. I am not aware of any Dutch per se ISP conferences although that market is certainly quite vibrant.

See though "conferences" is not the case, then again there is RIPE + AMS-IX meetings, who needs more than that :)

Also see for the Swiss Network Operators Group, which I can really recommend for attending meetings as they are a lot of fun. (Hint: Generally the meeting is hold in the "Altes TramDepot" ( , which is a beer brewery and has a wide selection of beers ;)

I am also disappointed to see the Canadians and Irish have next to nothing despite Ireland being the European base of operations for Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Yahoo.

Ireland has SAGE-IE ( which fills in the niche quite well, together with ILUG ( for related subjects. I think they are quite well covered too :)

Germany btw has CCC Congress + SummerCamp (, thus they are also covered :) Though indeed not 100% ISP events, they are very much related and also a lot of fun.

8. Both DEC-IX and AMS-IX have member meetings each year. Not clear how difficult to get invited if you are not a member.

If you are not a member at either of these your network has a problem :) (Oh and you are missing out on the great AMS-IX parties too!)
