Thank you for the update.
It is good to hear that you are making progress on the list below. Good 

With regards to advice:
* Conference events such as FOSS4G succeed if there is a strong feeling 
of confidence from everyone that the event will be a success.

* Potential attendees will come, if they think that there will be lots 
of high profile and interesting presenters and exhibitors
* Exhibitors will come if they think there will be lots of attendees
* Presenters will come if they think there will be lots of attendees

So what should an organising committee do to help facilitate this?
* Do lots of talking and press releases, and blogs etc.
* Talk about all the good news stories.
* Do you know of a group of people attending? Talk about it publicly.
* Do you know about sponors? Talk about it.
* Will there be lots of local Chinese attendees? Talk about it.
