Two examples, where local (national level) FOSS4G's happen(ed) close to
a global FOSS4G:

* FOSS4G Japan run in the same year as FOSS4G in Seoul
* German FOSSGIS conference will be in the same year as FOSS4G Bonn

I think the main reason why this has not been seen as a competition were
different languages.
There is probably a significant number of attendants, who would not
attend a conference with presentations in English.

In case of FOSS4G NA and FOSS4G in Bosten the language would be the same
