Check out this article summarizing the FOSS4GNA Conference.  "The Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial North America (FOSS4GNA) conference was held in Washington, D.C. on April 10-13. Hot on the heels of FOSS4G in Denver last fall and a warm-up for FOSS4G 2012 in Beijing, China, the event drew 360 attendees, with many coming from the local area."

"This event is really a developer conference. The technical discussions seemed to hold the audience’s rapt attention. My sense was the less technical presentations (project-based ones, the app-focused ones, the “we did this, then this, then this...”) drove a good percentage of attendees to their laptops to surf and check e-mail."
