There are a few reasons why the budget for the APAC and LATAM FUDCons is
a bit lower than the NA and EMEA FUDCons. Most of it has to do with the
purchasing power of the USD around the world and the size of the FUDCon
* NA and EMEA FUDCons have been happening longer, and tend to be larger
events in terms of the number of people who attend. This makes
everything related to logistics cost a bit more.
* The EMEA FUDCons have a larger budget because the Euro is expenseive
compared to the dollar.
* The NA FUDCon is always the largest one in terms of overall size, and
it gets a bit more money.
* In all cases, if a FUDCon is being planned transparently and the
budget needs are clear, if more budget is needed, we'll find that extra
money. $20k for NA and EMEA and $15k for LATAM and APAC is a relatively
firm guideline, but not without flexibility.
