FOSS4G Calgary 2020 - Stage 2 Bid Submission

JonathanNeufeld

Dear OSGeo Conference Committee,

 

On behalf of the Calgary Local Organizing Committee (CLOC) we are pleased to submit our Stage 2 Proposal to host FOSS4G2020 in Calgary.

 

Links:

1.       FOSS4G Calgary 2020 Bid Book

2.       Appendix including letters of support

3.       FOSS4G 2020 Calgary Budget

 

Highlights of our proposal include:

-          A well established, dynamic, and growing geospatial community in our city

-          A diverse LOC with representatives from the local geospatial community, academia, and industry

-          A commitment to inclusivity and diversity through a fully funded Travel Grant Programme, and activities for families and spouses

-          Easy and cost effective access to our city through a major international airport, with daily flights to national and international destinations

-          Negotiated discounts for accommodation rates at local hotels

-          Subsidized tickets to the Gala Evening event at the National Music Centre, and an icebreaker event at a local downtown brewery, the National Beer Hall

-          A stable and conservative budget that delivers a profitable event, while keeping ticket prices low and affordable for all

-          Confirmed sponsorship of $99,857 USD to date from non-governmental organizations (NGOs), Universities, and private companies

-          The potential for an additional $200,000 CAD (150,940 USD) in sponsorship from Alberta Innovates

 

We hope that you enjoy reading the bid we’ve put together, and we’re excited to host FOSS4G 2020 in Calgary.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Jonathan Neufeld
