>    hosts a variety of information about planning an OWASP event, as well as
>    various requirements and policies that have been put in place by the
>    foundation to govern Global AppSec Conferences.
>    - Gather a small team together who are interested in working the
>    event.  Trust us, you can’t do it all yourself.
>    - Work with your local planning team to acquire some basic information
>    (location, tentative dates, possible venues, costs, theme, etc) about your
>    event.
>    - Prepare a rough budget plan plan using the OWASP Budget Planning
>    Tool (http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Conference_Budget_Planning_Tool).
>     We understand that you may not have quotes and good estimates for all of
>    the budget items but please put forward the best information you have.
>    - Some events have chosen to put together a short presentation
>    describing the organizing committee, previous conference experience,
>    existing local supporting organizations, local attractions, access to
>    transportation, local culture and more. In general, these are presentations
>    to 'pitch' your city to the committee. Examples of successful presentations

> locations and not every proposal will be approved.  We also realize that
> this could be very early in your planning process, and therefore

> available information.
> The conferences committee has been working hard to improve conference
