This is exactly what we are doing with OSGeo.BE.
Last edition (Mar 2017) we attended BeGeo, an event where more than
1000 GIS experts attend.
In 2018 the event will be even attract more people. We want to have a
booth there, and are also organising one of the 9 parallel tracks :
I suggested as the title of the track: How open collaboration can help
geospatial intelligence to the next level?
