The annual Wikimania conference is to be held in Bibliotheca Alexandrina, which have won the bid for hosting the event against two worthy candidates, Atlanta and Cape Town.
Quoting from the Wikimania 2008 Alexandria blog:

The Wikimedia Foundation is a non-profit organization based in St.Petesburg, Florida, USA, with local chapters in several cities around the world. It was founded in 2003, since then it has acted as a portal for developing and maintaining multilingual open content through several Wiki based projects. Its annual Wikimania conference is intended to provide a venue for discussing various Wiki projects, their possible evolution, and to discuss several related research papers and topics. The conference typically consists of hacking days, workshops, panel discussions and presentations. The conference also acts as a meeting point for Wiki users, providing them with an opportunity to interact and exchange expertise.
