Yes, the tour concept is probably more effective for the Asia region.
People indeed travel much less across the region compared to Europe or

in Tokyo. And I believe it also gave the Japan chapter an exciting and 
well deserved further energy boost. To some degrees AppSecs can be

AppSec. (after all, the effort the org team needs to put into this is 

Sadly, for 2015, we will not have an AppSec in Asia and I plan to have 
an Asia tour again in Q4 2015. Though we definitely need volunteers and 
speakers to help with that.
