Well, I am very sure that everybody here have the same opinion ;-)

I am very hopeful we will have nice Open Day here, good for our local community and good for Debian community.

My suggestion is:

1) If a local sponsor offers a talk in english about Debian, we talk with content team to see if is possible to schedule it on a DebConf slot (if in this ocasion there is a free slot yet).

2) If a local sponsor offers a talk (in english or portuguese) about Free Sofwtare in general, (after we agree it is good for the event) we schedule it on a Open Day slot.

Just to be clear: sponsors will not impose nothing to DebConf or Open Day. As Helen said before, we have experience to deal with this.
