Hello,

in May 2015 Berlin's Linux user group (BeLUG) has started a new type of event 
which has spread quickly all over Europe: the Linux Presentation Day (LPD)

2015.1: Berlin only
2016.1 & 2016.2: 120+ cities in 15 countries
2017.1: first locations outside Europe (Canada, New Zealand, probably more)

I contact you because we intend to expand the LPD beyond Europe next year.

The aim of the LPD towards the general public is to provide biannual and 
comprehensive information events about Linux for private users who would like 
to get a first impression of Linux.

The aim towards the media is to make the event so big (both nationally and 
internationally) that the nationwide non-IT media cover it regularly.

The aim towards the Linux community is that an LPD event can be so small and 
easy to organize (even without costs) that really everyone can try to organize 
an event with good chances of success. The local organizers decide on their 
own what their event shall be like; we just make suggestions and offer 
support.


You can find a longer description of the concept here:

Are you as an organization interested in participating in the LPD? If not: Are 
any of your members interested in helping us bring the LPD to the US?

This event is very useful for finding new LUG members.


Best regards,

(Mr.) Hauke Laging
