Has anyone attended the Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference in Beijing? I'm not a lawyer or an academic, but I am interested in learning more about property rights in China. Should I attend?

Inexpensive camp-like location for very small conference?

I'm looking for recommendations for a location in New York or southern New England to have a 3 day/2 night unconference for a 25-30 folks max, relatively close to transportation. I'm envisioning something like a camp with cabins, electricity, a usable kitchen, and a common room for meals and discussion space. Most importantly, it needs to be cheap. [more inside]

Are you a member of Society for Neuroscience or ASBMB or FASEB or something similar? I have a doctorate in biochemistry/pharmacology. I've completely left academia and work at a small biotech firm as a scientist. I don't want to permanently narrow my field of interest, so I thought it would be helpful to become a member of one of the science societies and/or attend some conference(s) separately from those that come up for my job. I'm having trouble deciding on what would be the most efficient and enjoyable option. [more inside]

Out of my element in Charleston music scene

Let's say you're looking for a band to play at a conference for 500 river and watershed activists in Charleston, South Carolina in June. Let's also say you're doing this from Portland, Oregon and know next to nothing about the music scene in that beautiful coastal city. Finally, let's say that your fellow staff members have barred you from booking another bluegrass band ever again, yet this isn't exactly a Top 40/cover band crowd. What's a soul to do?

Cheapo audio setup for small conference room (with wireless mics?)

I work for a nonprofit that rents out smallish space for other nonprofits to meet in. We have one room that's big enough that soft talkers are sometimes hard to hear in back, and one of those soft talkers has recently asked if I can set up a wireless lavalier mic for her. So I need to solve too problems: the mic system, and the amplification system. [more inside]

What's a great place to hold a conference in Portland?

I'm helping to plan a weekend conference in Portland, OR next June. We hope to have 300-500 people attend. We'd like to have some sessions in which everyone gathers to hear featured speakers, and we'd like to have breakout workshops featuring smaller groups. Plus it would be great if we were near food and lodging. My question: Where are good locations in Portland to hold a conference? We're not keen on cold, soulless places like the convention center. What about the art museum? The Baghdad theater? The Aladdin? The Kennedy School? What venues can you recommend?
