Logistics and Hotels

This 2-day meeting is hosted at one of Google's London offices: 123 Buckingham Palace Road. It is next door to Victoria Station.

Please see Dan's mail for other logistics info.

Please be aware that there are several other Google addresses in London, including another office nearby on the same road.

Two (different) rooms are booked: a 12 person meeting room (day 1) + an 8 person room (day 2). These were the largest available; Dan is investigating possible improvements.

At this time we have no hotel recommendations. Please share any useful links and information here. Local host contact is Dan Brickley.
