Welcome to the Drupal Event Organization group. Here we share meetup, camp, regional conference, and international conference organization tips and tricks. The event calendar should be used to announce events, not this group. Feel free to share your tips about successful events and plans, find partners to organize meetups.
There are some lists of tips for event organization:
- Drupal Camp Organizing Guide v.2
- Drupal User Group Best Practices
- DrupalCon Organizers Guidelines
- Notes from DrupalCon Boston Event Organizer BOF
With over 500 camp attendees and 60+ session proposals, us organizers of Drupal Camp LA needed a Drupal site that was built for organizers and attendees, with lessons learned from 3+ DrupalCons & 2+ DrupalCamps. Here is our formula for our awesome camp site.
"DrupalCampLA.com was built on Drupal 6 using core & contributed modules to handle event registration, sponsorship management, featured speakers, user bio's, and session proposals. The website features an attendee driven event schedule where members propose sessions and only registered members pick which sessions they'd like to see (in the BarCamp style). Planning the schedule for the day of events has been made flexible enough to allow organizers to maintain a master schedule with ease. Not to mention that all attendees get their own schedule view with the sessions they pick."
"The web site was based on the latest Drupal 6.x release and utilized many of the current generation modules such as CCK for content customization, imagefield and imagecache to handle imaging Views & custom theming built on Zen for content presentation." (A full list of the modules used is in the case study - http://drupal.org/node/519100 )Read more

Con esta reunión cerramos el ciclo de reuniones presenciales.
Participantes: @Joyita, @rquilca, @juanlema, @develCuy y demos la bienvenida a Ronald Chilquillo (@ghiace)
Aprovecho para comentar que @ghiace se mostró super pilas y enganchado con la organización, alegra mucho saber que se puede contar con gente como el para organizar el evento.
- Los organizadores garantizan el espacio y la difusión del evento, pero los participantes(grupos/comunidades) arman las sesiones(ponencias, charlas, presentaciones, install fest, exhibiciones, etc).
Currently there are three teams participating: Joomla!, WordPress and Drupal. Anyway this CMS Showdown still call for participation from other CMS. The event is not actual competition but fun event of porting prototype theme to each CMS within the BarCamp night. All results from the Showdown will be released as GPL.Read more

I attempted to organize a "DrupalCon" last year in Australia with mixed results, and learned quite a lot. Several people in the Australian community are pushing to organize a "DrupalCon" again and I am aware that other people in this region and others are keen to do the same.
This highlights several issues with the current arrangements for organizing international/regional drupal events and how the community and the association work with them.Read more
We are in the early stages of planning an Atlanta Drupalcamp, and wanted to reach out to see if other camp organizers had best practices, tips, ideas, etc. to share. More specifically, I was wondering if anyone has kept any old notes or a checklist of tasks they could share. I've been digesting the BoF notes and organizer's guide, but since this is our first camp any further direction would be welcomed from more experienced camp leaders.
We have tentatively secured a facility from a local university and are targeting a September timeline (2 weeks before or after Drupalcon Europe).Read more
