I have been contacted today by FPT, an IT company in Vietnam (Hanoi
apparently), who is interested to co-organize the summit as well as
supply volunteers and maybe even become a sponsor.
Just read the email I received and let me know how you feel about it.
It's nice to see other parties interested and eventually willing to
bring a bigger audience to our conference.

Hello Frederic Muller,
I'm Nam from FPT, an IT company in Vietnam
I'm from Hanoi but currently I'm in a business trip to Saigon, and I met
several SaigonLUG people here, and they told me about Gnome Asia Summit.
I was the manager of FPT Open Solutions (open source development center
of FPT) and hosted a few big open source events. I'm eager about the
opportunity for Vietnam to host an important international open source
*development* event. There was many open source events in the past, but
there was not about developing software. The CEO of FPT, Nguyễn Thành
Nam, is also a big supporter of free software movement (he had a talk in
Software Freedom Day Hanoi 2007, organized by me
So I want to ask if FPT can join hosting the event. We can dedicate good
number of staff and many volunteers to help organize this event. I think
FPT may be interested to be a sponsor as well, but I am not responsible
for PR so I have to ask the PR department before being sure about it.
Looking forward to your reply,
