[Owasp-board] [Global_conference_committee] AppSec USA 2013 - Updates

Is running a conference in Q1 with a goal to generate revenue for OWASP better than currently Q4.

Would a change effect a positive increase in sponsorship opportunities, available travel budgets and related end of year issues.

IMHO yes. That is the question about a shuffle on GlobalAppSec 2014 target dates. 

AppSecUSA 2013 is a different thread and should not be confused in the purposed topic presented.

>> Just to bring everyone up to speed on AppSec USA 2013 hosted in NYC.  The local team had a good call yesterday to discuss the initial event logistics.  The team agreed that we WILL have training at the event - so the model will stay at 2 days of training followed by 2 days of conference.
>> The only "hurdle" at this point is finalizing the location and dates.  Currently the only feasible dates for locations in NYC that can accommodate our large expected attendance (1500+) is Nov 18-21, 2012.  
>> From a larger Foundation perspective - I think we can make these dates work considering that we haven't finalized the dates for the AppSec Latam event and it sounds like the parties interested in submitting for that event would be willing to hold AppSec Latam in early Oct to avoid back-to-back global events.  Additionally, since there are a few other appsec events taking place in  Oct (ISSA International, Hacker Halted, LASCON), it works to move our event to Nov.
>> In another thread there was a suggestion to moving the USA event to March/April. Discussion on this is welcome - but should be separate from the NYC proposal as they need to get going for next year.
>> If you have serious concerns about these revised dates - please reply to this email within the next 24 hours or attend the conference committee meeting taking place tomorrow at 10PM UTC.
