Hi Bex and Alick,
We already add the goal of this FUDCon APAC 2017 and why we held in Depok
City in the wiki.
Fo the concern about team :
We only two for now just for prepare bid proposal. After we get green light
about it. We plan ask student council in University to join as Local
Committee. And we plan open registration for volunteer. We need about 10%
from total participants, around 30-35 people.
For Ticket sale like bex already mention before :
Ticket sale is commonly in Indonesia. Why not set as free? Because when we
set free, people just register but not come for event. It is make difficult
for local committee. This decision (Ticket Sale) base on our experience
from GNOME.Asia Summit 2015 at Depok, and openSUSE.Asia Summit 2016 last
October in Yogyakarta.
Travel expense just for speaker and some people who make contribution for
Fedora (Amba, etc). For ordinary people, they just come with their budget.
We will spend budget from ticket sale to t-shirt and meal. Why we cover
meal for each attendee? Because it will save time for people search food
court and keep attendee in conference venue.
