I am replying on behalf of OSGeo's conference comittee. Our comittee
cares about the RFP process, but after a conference is given to a
location, (as for 2018 to Dar Es Salaam), the local teams care for
the organisation on their own - if wanted they are supported by the
conference committee, but any agreements with PCO's are on behalf of
the local teams.
I am quite sure, that the Dar-team is well organized, as plannings
are already well advanced. If there is a need for any local PCO (if
there isn't any already), the correct address is to ask the local
team. You should find the contact to them via the conference'
web-pesence (2018.foss4g.org). As the Dar team is alreadyi nwork now
for more than one year, I thin, that they are already setup well.
Kind regards, Till

Not sure about the board being included on this
communication, perhaps intendee for the conference committee.
Looks to be a PCO reaching out to OSGeo as a
business lead. Going to guess they just checked upcoming
events and not our FOSS4G RFP processs.

Hello Mr Feldman,
I hope this email finds you well. I am writing to you
from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania as a local Professional
Conference Organiser (PCO). Our Company SRC is a member
of ICCA and we came across the FOSS4G Conference that is
being held in Aug/September 2018 in Dar es Salaam. (See
the reference file attached). I take pride that our
country will be hosting OSGeo community soon and I do
hope you get to experience all the beauty that Tanzania
has to offer.
The ICCA database does not show a local PCO appointed
to work on this conference. We would like to be
considered to work along side the Local Organising
Committee as local conference managers to support the
planning committee in organising all logistics
pertaining to a successful & seamless execution of
your conference. We have organised numerous events for a
varied list of clientele - World Bank, Commonwealth
Secretariat, GSMA, Govt of Tanzania, Centre for Global
Development & The Aspen Institute to name a few. I
have attached our company profile and client portfolio
