Description The Free Software Community is colored with many happenings and events. Very important on such events is the availability of the major players, including distributions. This sub-project tries to cover all events where Gentoo can present itself.

Project listing

The Gentoo Events project ("events") is the official Gentoo project for coordinating Gentoo's presence at various events hosted by the Free Software Community. This includes trade shows and developer meetings. By providing a single project to attempt to coordinate the Gentoo presence at events, it is hoped that Gentoo will present a more uniform and informed showing.


The goal of the Gentoo Events project is to coordinate the Gentoo presence at these events. This includes things such as procuring hardware, assisting developers in their travel and accomodations needs, obtaining printed press materials and release media, obtaining posters and flyers, and generally helping to ensure that our involvement in the event is a positive one that puts Gentoo in a good light, as well as making sure we have fun doing it.



If you wish to have your event listed here, please contact the Events team and specify the dates, location, and most importantly, a contact person/address. Someone from the Events team will contact you back.
