Maybe there is a location of the same size like Google with:
- - - free (firewall/charge) internet
- - - two projection surfaces, but only one mounted beamer (one unmounted 
beamer to organize)
- - - one flip chart
- - - open for us 24/7
- - - free of charge

There are two possibilities of full service catering in the room and in a 
neighbour building is a canteen (breakfast and lunch only)

There is no problem with public transport (200 meters from location)
