 *2. - What is your proposed venue? (include access to Internet, room
sizes, maximum attendees)*

Initially it proposed by the LCC - Lima Convention Center built by 2015 and
where the most important national and international events are held in the
country and in the city of Lima.

It has the following rooms sizes,

It is a 10-story building is designed for FOSS4G event and offers services
of restaurants, cafes and underground car parking.

The internet service is guaranteed by having connections 10, 000 computers
at the same time inside the building the Convention Center of Lima.

*3. - What are your provisional dates for the conference? (I could estimate
sometime in September, as you lined out the september temperatures, but is
it possible to be more precise here?)*

We do not want to break the tradition of the last FOSS4G so we believe that
the fourth week of September 2018 is our initial proposal.

The average temperature in September in Lima is 20 ° C / 68 ° F.

*  4. Early thoughts on prices of conference attendance? (Indicative

Perú is a middle-income country, but according to statistics from the last
FOSS4G between 75% to 90% of the participants are from high-income
countries therefore wish to have greater participation of emerging and
travel grants be given to low-income countries, with preference to students
OSGEO community representatives from other continents, the same will apply
to teachers and researchers that their exposure is deemed important and
they bring to the OSGeo community.

The projected price for an average of attendees as breakeven this is
between 600-700 people and this gives us the cost of US $ 650 per
participant and as all events are only initial estimates and references.

*   5. What is the price range and general location of your proposed
accommodations?  (hotels)*

Lima has hotels from 3 to 5 stars and among them totaling approximately
7,500 rooms. The benchmark prices according to our queries via web and

Hotels 3 stars

Single room 100 to $ 180, depending on the services and location.

Double room 120 to $ 200, depending on the services and location.

5 star Hotels

Single room 200 to $ 500, depending on the services and location.
