They traditionally do switch between US and Europe, but if someone makes 
a compelling case for it to be held somewhere different and a suitable 
venue can be found, then that will happen.

Also worth noting in general the service in the US is better and far 
cheaper than in Europe. Not wishing to sleight our European cousins, but 
for events, the US really does have venues and facilities really sewn 
up. Just a shame that some of the venues are so far from places for 
evenings out, but that's nicely offset by all the coaches that Canonical 
lays on for attendees. :)

I was lucky in Florida, the cheapest flight we could get included a car 
in the deal, so I could drive around. Conversely in Europe we've tended 
to have good public transport.

Swings and roundabouts.
