I suppose my situation is somewhat unique. I only work on open source
GIS as a hobby, and it isn't really something my day job will support
financially. So in my case only events that are hosted locally or
regionally are possible.
I'm likely the exception to the rule, and not the rule.

Well, North America's "West Coast" includes the
'foreign countries' of Canada and Mexico, if you
live in the USA.
If people are saying they can't attend [insert name
of OSGeo event here], then it would be useful to
state why they can't attend. There is a difference
between "travel/accommodation cost is 'too high'"
and "my workplace has to authorize the travel, and
they do not send people to events outside the
continent, regardless of the costs".
