Taking off my cloudbees hat and putting on my old hat being based in Europe.

Getting approval to attend conferences abroad (outside Europe) for me was 
not always easy - as it involves large travel and time lost due to this. 
 As such it was easier to go to a european conference.   I also feel that 
yes you get more people in USA-CA but that this could just a critical mass 
and a direct result of its much easier to go to something local than it is 
to travel 9 hours around the globe.  Do you have stats of where people came 
from in the last even - where they predominantly from the bay area?
In the London event I met people that where very basic users of Jenkins 
(just starting) and it was easy for them to go to a local conference. 
 Would these same users make the same investment to go somewhere accross 
the globe - I personally don't think so - which would be a big shame.

The JAMs fill a gap - but I'm not sure that this gap is filled yet - or 
that it will be filled by next year  - certainly there is nothing in the UK 
that I know of - and even then we would need something based in the north 
west as well as somewhere around London.
