State versus state *competition* is great. Trying to do better than
Sydney, specifically because it was Sydney, was one of the motivations
for us doing the Brisbane l.c.a, and I think that one of Perth and
Adelaide both got a bit of extra motivation from trying to prove they
were a better host city than Canberra (and after they got the conference,
proving they could do a better job of it than anyone previous had).

As long as it's in the right spirit (which l.c.a definitely has been),
that sort of thing's both fun and productive.
