We are putting together this proposal for an Apache Roadshow in India.

Proposed Location: Gurgaon (officially called Gurugram)

Main reasons behind selecting this location are as follows:

  1. Financial Hub  : It is known as a financial and technology hub of india
  2. Tech Company Presence: All major technology companies have a presence there
  3. Connectivity :The location is close to Delhi Airport (12 miles) which has good domestic and international connectivity
  4. Local Support: We have contacts and local support in Gurugram that can take care of our local requests and needs

Proposed Date: Q1 2020  (Potentially 2nd or 3rd week in February)

Suggested date is 2nd or 3rd week in February. The reasons for this are as follows:

  1. Weather: The weather is very good in India at this time (i.e. not too hot, not too cold)
  2. Flight Costs: International flight rates are cheaper in February compared with other months
  3. Lack of Other Open Source Events: Not many open source events are in this time frame. The only main event is European based FOSDEM  which is usually the first weekend in February)
