The easiest part of organising a conference will be getting approval and 
endorsement from OSGeo.

which has engagement from local communities and which considers impacts

greater OSGeo community. (The community will likely have many 
suggestions on how to tweak your conference, which will generally be 

So my suggestion is:
1. Flesh out your idea.
2. Engage key stakeholders
3. Put a proposal forward with key ideas
4. Work with community to refine initial proposal
