Drenching rides on rubber boats are a popular way to take in the thundering spectacle. Weather: 28°C, Wind NE at 14 km/h, 65% Humidity (Source: Wikipedia)

FUDCon Inside Latinoware Advantages

Silvio is one of the organizers of Latinoware, proposing a FUDCon inside a Latinoware will make US spend better our money and achieve better results: it would be like an event happening inside a bigger one. The advantages of doing that from a marketing perspective There would be a lot of FLOSS people there, 2015 edition had 4k+ people and 2016 had 5k+ people attending.

This would probably be the biggest FUDCon LATAM ever had.

Foz do Iguaçu is a great city because it's in the Border of Paraguay and Argentina making ease from these people to attend this FUDCon.

this event will be held inside Itaipu Dam, that's 50% Brazilian and 50% Paraguay,
