From Fedora Project Wiki

The Southeast Linuxfest is scheduled for June 9-11 at the Sheraton Charlotte Airport Charlotte, NC.

Why Does FEDORA Attend SELF

Southeast Linux Fest covers a region that spans from Florida through Virginia on the east coast. We as Ambassadors see the event as the major venue for the south that draws many visitors from all over the southeast. Since this event is the only one in the area of its kind we can distribute and educate the versatility of Fedora. Most of the attendees are from areas that have and participate in Linux User Groups in their local states. It is imperative that these same individuals take back an impressive and memorable experience with Fedora. Its more than just showing up to an event and promoting our vision or like other sponsors just to give out prizes or swag to draw attention, but to give those who visit our booth more than just items to pass out, but to give each person an experience of Fedora they can remember and bring that same experience to LUGs in their locality. SELF also provides the opportunity for ambassadors with different expertise within Fedora to provide the best possible experience to our audience.
