Thanks for the list....Can I suggest we form a wiki dedicated to events? There could be a few categories/columns, one of them being importance and another possible attendees. Otherwise, I *know* we will lose this information.
Who wants to start the wiki? The main page for the OOo wikis is: http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Main_PageStarting one is easy--I've started two already, one for major deployments of OOo (add more if you know of them), the other for derivatives (blank, so far).

Most of them are Australian, but I came across a couple of other very interesting ones while searching and have included them. Maybe we should start getting a list of events together, priority of event is unimportant, as possible places where people can present OOo, be it officially or otherwise.

I have given out OOo discs but never any reall formal focused OOo presence. BETT - January - Just gone. We were there on OpenForum Europe's standwith INGOTs and it does seem to have been useful in generating interestand leads.Apart from FLOSSIE, all the others are likely to cost around £1500 for abooth unless as we did with BETT its possible to get on someone else's stand. FLOSSIE is simple, if we have people willing to take a booth there I can give it free space. I will be at the others most probably with INGOTs so I will be busy all the time but I can provide advice if it helps. -- Ian Lynch <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> ZMS Ltd
