The Events team coordinates the organization MeeGo events and the presence of the MeeGo project in other events.
Corporate sponsorships are welcomed as an opportunity for community growth, visibility, and the establishment of partnerships with businesses that look to support or utilize the development of the MeeGo project. With that said, there are a few things to consider when aligning a corporate sponsorship with your Local MeeGo Network or Regional Summit event.
Naming and Logistics
Please view these guidlines provided by the Linux Foundation with help from the Regional FI team as they started most of the Regional guidelines that are also organized here.
The information collected here is designed to assist you in organizing your local MeeGo event. Thank you for helping take our community one step towards greater visibility. In the MeeGo Local packages below, you will find various MeeGo Local collateral templates [badges, banners, email blasts, landing pages, logo lockups, way finding posters, speaker posters, and event agendas] to help you create your own local event, while still building equity in the MeeGo brand.Please take some time to read through this local event guideline document. Enclosed you will find proper usage guidelines for the MeeGo Local visual identity, voice, templates, available color palette, and event setup tips. Please help us bring further solidarity and community through these shared-use assets.
For questions about using these assets, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Below are modifications of the MeeGo Local lockups that are NOT suitable for distribution. Unsuitable usages are not limited to those listed below, but serve as an example of what liberties NOT to take with the MeeGo Meetup and Summit visual systems. Do not use these visual effects with the lockups:
Local MeeGo Networks organize face to face meetings and other activities on the real ground. They bring what no online social network can provide: real handshakes, real kudos, real applause, real face to face chat. They are free as in beer and you might even get some real drinks for free as well! These networks can organize certain events and there are three separate event types described below.
Local MeeGo Network Meetups are intended to happen on a regular basis, for the purpose of demonstrations, furthering the development of the MeeGo project, and community interaction. These Meetups are intended to be brief, lasting only a few hours, and to pull together a local development audience. Below are guidelines for organizing a Local Network Meetup.
Be predictable. Meetups thrive on participating members having a dependable date to plan for. An example would be a Meetup happening on every 3rd Thursday of each month. Establishing a dependable date is paramount to the success of these community-building interactions.
Naming the Network, and the meetups. To keep MeeGo community solidarity, MeeGo Network Meetups should use the following name syntax. Network Naming Syntax:

When running your MeeGo Network Meetup, we recommend that you create a page on the MeeGo wiki at: wiki.meego.com/Local MeeGo Networks#Local Networks in the World. This page can act as your Meetup homepage, providing scheduling, location, and other various informative posts.
Do your best to disseminate Meetup meeting dates, topics, and requests, using mailing lists, Facebook, Diaspora, and Twitter. Below are the MeeGo Network guidelines, to help you manage your Meetup.
Here are a few steps for keeping your Meetup structured, or at least a place to start:
Regional MeeGo Summits are to be hosted once to twice a year, and will often serve as a more formal micro-conference, bridging the gap between the international events and the Local Meetups. MeeGo Summits can be hosted annually, should last a couple of days, and should attract participants from the host region and immediate surroundings. Further attendee geographical reach is limited to the international events in most cases. The main difference of this micro-conference and the international project conferences is that the Summits are hosted by the community entirely and are not in any way managed or planned by the MeeGo Project. Efforts should be made to message the Summits accordingly, to avoid any confusion whatsoever. Because organizing a Summit takes quite a bit more work than a Meetup, there is a suggested process for creating your successful Regional Summit.
To keep MeeGo community solidarity, MeeGo Summits should use the following name syntax.

Title:MeeGo Summit $REGION $YEAR(For example: MeeGo Summit FI 2011) Body: We are interested in organizing a Regional MeeGo Summit in $REGION. If you are interested in attending, please respond. If you are interested in serving as part of the Summit Team, please respond with your contact information.
The MeeGo Project is solely responsible for the creation, planning, and marketing of international MeeGo events. An example of an international MeeGo event would be the Dublin 2010 event and the upcoming MeeGo San Francisco 2011 event. This guide is NOT intended for the creation of these international events. Instead, this mention is made to serve as a point of reference for the two event types and the distinct differences between the local events and the international events. Listed below are event types which the community should organize, and this reference guide and assets are intended to aid in the planning of them.
If you have further questions or would like advice on setting up your event, please come to the bi-weekly MeeGo Events meeting. They will be held on the #meego-meeting IRC starting Tuesday January 25th , 2011, 17:00UTC, 9:00PST.
