I personally like the idea of some kind of installfest, being a LUG member.

Probably in that environment the emphasis might be better put on 
liveCD's and demos of what you can do with the software - I can't 
imagine many being willing to "risk" the computer they were traveling 
with by doing an actual install... (but I would be pleased if I were 
wrong about that ;-) )
