First of all, congratulations to both teams for making the bids. They're
achievements in themselves and we hope we can pick the better one and
grow from the experience as a region.

Looking at what Panama did, we may have three major criteria and lots of
equally important sub-criteria. The percentages limit the total points a
criteria can have. Sub-criteria adds up to criteria points.

It goes without saying that below shows my bias.

Location (20%)
- venue
- cultural interest
- safety

Costs (40%)
- venue
- travel
- accomodation

People (40%)
- local support
- local and foreign contributors
