Hi Guys,

I am looking from some feedback, so I hope that you can help.

I am a Microsoft Excel MVP, and I will be in your homeland in Oct/Nov. Whilst I am there, I though about giving an Excel session, on the new self-service BI addin, PowerPivot.

Now, I have never been to NZ before, I do not know much about your community, so I looking for some advice on the following:
- whether there is an active Excel community
- whether there is a market down there for such an event, any Excel events
- whether the attendees would be willing to contribute to the event costs (nominal amount to cover events costs)
- where the best place might be to hold it (Auckland, Wellington, New Plymouth?)
- how easy is it to get suitable venues, how much, would any company offer their premises nominally/for free?
- anything else you can think of.

Thanks for anything you might give.
