If you want to help spread the word about KDE, here you can find a list of upcoming events to participate in. Add your own event and ask for help on the mailing list, or offer to help someone who is already organising an event.

Check Upcoming Events

Past events we attended

We keep a record of who organized and helped with past events. This way you can easily find people to contact and get information about the events, the organization process, the attendees, and any other aspect of event organization you may be interested in. The more information you have, the more successful the event will be.

Check Historic Events

Materials for events

Information on how to set up a booth and represent KDE at an event.

Hosting a KDE event requires some work to make it successful. On this page you will find the information that will help you promote the event, and a list of things to consider while preparing it. If you need more help, do not hesitate to ask us on the mailing list, or directly contact a person who already attended or organized a KDE event.

Hosting a release party in your city is the easiest way to meet local members of the KDE community and have fun while celebrating the latest technology from KDE.

Here you can find more formal documents that could be handed out to the press for major events such as Akademy or the Desktop Summits.
