Here's the issue. At least amongst the facilities we reviewed last year,
this was perhaps the best last year. Others were larger but older or newer
but smaller. There were nicer and larger facilities but they were really
waaaay out of town (we would need to hire buses to take people to and fro).

Not meaning to suggest that we should not explore a few more facilities
this year, but I wouldn't hold my breath much. I think it will boil down to
within central pune or way far out if one wants "newer" facilities. There
just aren't too many "new" places which can seat 700 in an auditorium, and
have more capacity for 1-2 additional tracks and classrooms etc. I think it
will be important to understand our apetite for out of town venues.
