If we were going to do it, firstly it would have to be at BHX or MAN, because they are the easiest to get to for everybody, secondly because they have decent traffic and lastly decent places to spot!

If it is a worldwide gathering, an airport in the real world should be chosen. This precludes any and all airports in the United Kingdom and the United States  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
Amsterdam Schiphol is a good alternative.
Not only are there excellent connections to the world, but the catering is also taken care of by a Burger King (open again after a major fire earlier this year) and 2 (TWO) MacDonnalds restaurants (loosely termed) within easy reach of the premises.
