No dates or location have been announced yet, but here is a quote from Steve Brown on what the location needs.
“You need a city with a large international airport so that players can get cheap flights from anywhere in the world. You need a venue that can hold approximately 1500 - 1600 people, with a professional quality sound, stage, and lighting set up. You need lots of nearby food options, and you need after party venues nearby (walking distance if possible) that can allow for both drinking and non-drinking players.
You need a local infrastructure of players and help that can support the event, because you need a core team of 4 - 5 and at least a dozen volunteers to make the event go smoothly, in addition to your judging staff.
You need a location where the organizing team has good relationships with local press, local businesses, and local service providers and can leverage those contacts to get everything needed for the event at the best possible prices because it’s entirely funded by return top companies who have little to no money.
There are a lot of cities that would work, but having the local team to pull it off is the huge limiting factor. I’m putting together a proposal for Cleveland because it works, and I can pull it off. Other members of the NYYL are working on proposals for other cities, and once we have everything together we’ll all meet and decide where it’s going to be. -Steve”
