Yes, we'd love a Vietnamese version.
We are very keen to attract a lot of delegates from the Asia/Pacific region.

I've noticed Vietnam has been developing a strong OSGeo community and 
industry and it would be great to have Vietnam showcase this at FOSS4G.

I'm also keen to hear any suggestions on how we can make FOSS4G more 
attractive to Asia.
