Hi All,

Since the Q&A portion of Stage 2 is coming to a close I'd like to do a final shoutout for Calgary (c:

-            Our LOC has direct experience leading events with attendance of 800-1,000 people

-            Calgary is easy to get to, and get around in

-            There is no provincial sales tax in Alberta, which means budget dollars will go further.

-            Our budget is conservative and will still provide at least $26k USD back to OSGeo, while ensuring an ethical and memorable experience for attendees

-            Calgary has a large geospatial community; with support from BC, Manitoba, and even Washington State

-            We have confirmed $98k USD in sponsorship, and the possibility for another $153k USD ($200k CAD) from a government agency

Thanks for your consideration - we're excited to learn the results of the vote.
