Recently, Italy, Ireland, and Scotland have adopted such bans. Germany
is thinking about it and in Austria local politicians have voiced
support for such a move. (that will take ages to get through)

So what about Dublin or Edinburgh during summer or Rome in the winter?
I've no idea about suitable hotels and one must make sure that the
meeting isn't quite at the height of the tourist season.

Another comment Re: smoking: Most of the smokers I saw in the Hilton
(especially those <censored> who dared to smoke at the restaurant
entrance) were in fact other IETF attendees. So the hotel needs to
protect the smoke-averse attendees primarily from the IETF smoking
contigent.

/ol (actually quite aggressive non-smoker, but harmless compared to what I've seen here)
