I reply as the previous year... it depends. 

How many persons must make a long journey? How many persons are 

I said that the previous year about the choose of Boston: how many 
participants has had Wikimania 2006?

To partecipate is important but not mandatory.

"For a Wikipedian"? I presume you meant to say "for a Wikipedian 
Europe". There are plenty of contributors in other parts of the 
including an emergent community across Asia for whom Taipei is a
highly accessible location.

It's expensive both ways to travel long distances, remember, so
choosing location based on population is a surefire way to 
that huge numbers of Wikimedians will never attend a Wikimania.
