I have some questions on this proposal.

  1. The NEAR APAC is the official NEAR Conference in APAC regions, and the main Objective is to increase the NEAR impression. All of the KPI about increase the wallets , BOS users, and impression is the main Objective of the conference. why do we have booth for NEAR in the NEAR conference to promote for NEAR? NEAR also have the biggest booth in this conference already
  2. A little bit confuse on the booth budget, I don’t see any booth which is $10k. The elite booth is only 5k, why the proposal for 10k
  3. All of the KPI you mentioned are overlap with the KPI and objectives of the whole conference



@HaiVu while i support your proposal on needing to be at NearAPAC… But as @Riley mentioned

What is the need for the booth in your line item?

And why is there need for a $10,000 booth?

Thank you for your proposal and the interest of the Near Vietnam team in attending APAC.

Because it is a regional event, I can support your participation as a community leader.

Things to remove and edit from your proposal to have my full support

-250 pcs of T-shirts are too much since it is an NF event, i can support 50 Near shirts

-Booth reservations are not required for any NF event unless you are from another ecosystem, not Near.

-3 days of working and preparation time for the event will also be removed for the following reasons: you are not a co-host or organizer, and you don’t need to engage in these activities.

Looking forward to other members’ comments.

Hello @HaiVu kindly remove Highlighted items.

While i see reasons why you and your team at Near Vietnam should be there, we can not funds those quoted line items in your budget as @Riley mentioned, its a Near event and there will be an overlap

That being said…

I am ready to support with the exclusion of those quoted line items… Oh this line line item :point_down:

Dear @HaiVu ! Due to transitions into NDC, unfortunately, we need to close your proposal. Feel free to apply later
