IMHO opinion having a spreadsheet with metrics could be helpful, but I
would like that to be made by someone who knows the region really well.
Otherwise the numbers will be as subjective as any other subjective

One of the things that helped for FUDCon Panamá was that we had some
bidders in the decision meeting sharing concerns about each location,
what helped the chosen one to work on the liabilities pointed out by
that time. This is basically what we are doing on this thread, and
certainly APAC bidders are reading it carefully.

If someone neutral from APAC could put a spreadsheet together, based on
the one provided by Joerg, it would be a nice to have in order to
support the decision. I would like to suggest an additional field
"community commitment to the bid" as one more aspect to be considered.
That was one of the main aspects we considered for FUDCon Milan, and I
think it is very important.
