Dear all,

After one of the most competitive bids in our history, we have a winner for FOSS4G 2025. The conference will go to Auckland, New Zealand. Auckland LOC did great and the Conference Committee decided to entrust them with responsibility of organizing the most important event in our community. But, as you can see below, the vote was very tight! Both proposals were amazingly good. It's such a pity to have just one winner. The voter's opinion in this matter was already highlighted by Codrina. As a Conference Committee, let's have a discussion with the Hiroshima LOC as soon as possible, not to lose such great quality work. One may say, it was a competition and we have a winner. True, but, in reality, it is quite complicated to have a better proposal in 2026. Let's discuss this.

To conclude, huge congratulations to both LOCs! Much appreciated! Auckland, you did great  and you have the floor now!

Warm regards,

Vasile & Msilikale

Dear Vasile, dear Msilikale,

FOSS4G 2025 will be in Auckland, New Zealand!

The voting was very tight, the Hiroshima LOC lost to just one vote. We have received 11 votes in total, 6 for Auckland and 5 for Hiroshima.

Many votes were accompanied by messages of encouragement for either team to propose for FOSS4G 2026, as both bids were very good!

Warm regards,
Codrina and Till
