to date we have 130 inscription.
as we all know, looking at the great metrics Cameron created most of the
subscription happens in the last 2 months. We are still 90 days before our

Our very early bird (Jan 15) has been good to see the first money move and
to check the registration platform. Very early deadlines help the group of
the LOC to start to be effective.

We have some very good sign from the abstract submission (more then 360) and
the sponsorships (70% of the expected budget already covered).
It is supposed to be the worst year for the crisis but lots of companies are
investing in the sponsorship and more are coming soon. It's an index of the
growing interest in FOSS4G, IMO.
There's still a lot to do. We still expect more then 1000 attendees but at
the moment we are only 130 and the volunteers :)

if you need more stats I can get the raw data of the subscribers but I
cannot see great stats for 130 pax.
