Agree with that!

Guillermo, best of luck for organizing FOSS4G-EC.
Let us know if you need any help. You can also
think of an wiki-page like our friends are done
for FOSS4G-EU 2017 [1] and requesting for
who maybe interested to join FOSS4G-EC to
add their names to the wiki. Once the dates
are fixed, you could send a upcoming event item for
the OSGeo website [2].
