1.       The more people, the better. Figure out ways to cross-market this event to the ISACA, ISSA, BDPA, SIM, PMI, etc chapters in Chile. If it requires adding say a PM to the agenda to have a little something for everyone on topics such as managing a secure SDLC then so be it

2.       Blast, spam, etc everyone who is an IT professional in Chile using sites such as LinkedIn. Most humans sit on "invites" till the last minute and of course it is usually too late for them to "forward" to others. 

3.       Send invites out as a calendar invite and not an email. Remove the burden of folks "remembering" to put on calendar

4.       Forward the calendar invites to local newspaper reporters as well

5.       Ping Microsoft, HP, etc and ask for them to contribute door prizes to be used in raffles. Merchandising is not necessary.

6.       Make sure your slides contains lots of marquee names. For example, it will be more impressive if you quote the number of chapters and even mention some of the names (e.g. Boston to Bangalore) and even some of the companies that participate (e.g. PayPal, Virtusa, Boeing, etc) through space donation or other local means

7.       Do something really bold like asking the most prominent politican and CIO to perform your keynote. The media will follow...

Hi All

I am very excited to announce the proximity of our event "First OWASP DAY - Chile 2010"

At this moment we have a hard working to check and  meet all the aspects of the session, we expect  to which  120 people attend.

At this point, I wanna ask to all of you people, advice and "best practices" to obtain   an successfull session.

Example :  
_How to obtain maximun press coverage
_ Discourse (template ?) for promote  and generate affiliations and sponsors
_  Discourse for explain in simple way the benefits of starting a local chapter  (for the organizations, enterprises and community)
_What about merchandising, is really necesary ? 

Thanks in advance.
