It's true that I haven't attended many events. I was at DebConf0 (2 years
ago) and at the french LinuxExpo in Paris in the same year. I
participated in several `Journées du libre' (a big yearly event
organized by my local LUG) in France and recently gave a talk about the
`Logidée tools' during an event dedicated to free software in
If I'm elected, I'll participate for sure in several of the biggest
european events at least. For the other continents, it will depend
on each case ...
I'll also repeat what I've said in my platform :

I hope that this will motivate some people to give Debian speeches at
the major events. They'll have the required legitimacy because they
are delegates of the leader and thus they'd probably have the same
conditions than the leader with respect to hosting/transportation
Of course, those representatives would be volunteers who have contacted
the leader and who expressed their interests in doing so. If several
people wish to be the representatives for the same "zone", either they
agree together to share the work-load, or the leader will have to
designate one according to the experience and so on.
I hope this answers your question, if not feel free to ask me again
on details that I have not adressed.
PS: BTW, that's one point of Branden's platform that I do like.
