Another suggestion to raise visibility is to invite recognizable speakers to give a keynote or to host a panel about an interesting or controversial topic
Dave Sonnen, IDC, A panel discussion on "Open Data and Data Quality"
- could include speakers from the US Census, Stats Can, NRCan, BC Min of the Environ, City of Van
- Dave is located in Wash State
Michael Jones: CTO, Google Earth "Google and Open Source"
Speaker from Can Govt (Geoconnections) on "Open Source and Govt Policy"
These things can help attract the press because they are good stories.

On a local level, I write regularly for MondoGIS
http://www.mondogis.it/, the leading IT GIS magazine, and reported about
osgeo and foss4g. Ok, it's not NY Times, but I think we can improve
visibility this way, if others do the same.
In my country at least, I found that direct contacts with journalists
help a lot.
