ISTR there was a web resource created somewhere a few years ago for sharing helpful information about organising conventions.

If I'm right, can anyone point me to it? Specifically, if there's an index of recommended caterers for UK convention organisers, I recently discovered a Bristol-based caterer that I'd like to add to that list.

It may have been part of the wiki. Which is currently broken, unfortunately. (Somebody poke somebody relevant, please.)
Or there was a UK Juggling Convention organisers group, but I can"t remember where. Maybe it was a Yahoo group, in which case that may have died recently too, unless it moved elsewhere?
More helpful answers are welcome... :-)

The wiki has been broken for a few months, poking attempts have been made by myself and others without success so far.
The yahoo group like many other yahoo groups has gone, I think Richard posted asking if anyone wanted anything saving.
There is a BJC: Behind The Scenes facebook group.

oh, there is also a Convention Organisers Skillshare Group on facebook

I believe Richard had an "organising a one day juggling convention" website but I can't find it now, I guess it might be a bit dated.

If you are just interested in the old content of the wiki, have a look at the archived version:

Ah. Well, the front page of it is, anyway. Hopefully the rest will get fixed soon.... :-/

Thanks for the replies.

I'll take a look at the FB groups. ISTR the wiki was something to do with Mini, who I haven't heard anything of for a loooong time.

I believe there were two rival wikis, one dropped off the internet years ago, the other I think is currently broken.

Archives here:

I wrote content for the latter, and retrieved it to republish here:

Hmmm... it's almost like there should be a 'thing'.

There are at least 3 different FB groups regarding organising BJCs/other conventions. But none of them are anywhere near as useful as the wiki was (I though it was back but it turns out I've just got most of it cached on my pc already...)

Convention Organisers Skillshare Group
Flow\Juggling festivals\Conventions organizers from around the world
BJC: Behind The Scenes

But without a central something, word of mouth is going to be the most reliable way of informing future BJC orgs about possible caterers.
