We once held GHM in Dusseldorf.

     I could arrange something at the hackerspace and social community
     center it is located in (Soziales Zentrum Bochum) or something
     in the broader region of the Ruhrarea.

Those kind of locations have been used in the past.  However there was
a concensus that the 2017 meeting was very successful because the meeting
and accommodation was all in the same building.   I think we should try
to reproduce that.
     But as some people have already noticed, past GHMs have been in
     Europe and for location diversity and good oportunities of people
     living elsewhere it would be good to organize in different regions.

     But I have notived that in previous years we had multiple GHMs in
     different countries or regions of countries in one year.
     So if we had GHM 2019 Brazil and GHM 2019 Russia and Germany, would
     that work out?
     I've noticed that handling of payments should have been moved to an
     external organization after last GHM. Local people organize the
     venues. Are there any major roadblockers for multiple regions per

I'm not aware of there ever having been more than one GHM in a single
year, and we're struggling to organise that, so I think that more than 
one per year is probably too much at this stage.

There have been several GHMs in Germany.   I think, if possible, somewhere
else would be good, if only to give people in other countries, who can't
afford to travel long distances a chance to participate.
