Can I suggest removing the Latinamerican meaning at all?
It also caused confusion this year for the event planned here in
Argentina ("PgDay 2009 Latinamerica"), that couldn't get realized by
lack of speakers and attendees.
I hope we (the involved in that pgday) had learned something...

So, I don't think inviting speakers of latin american countries is
enought to call it "Latinoamericano". If so, getting international
speakers convert it in a "PgDay Worldwide"?

I think it is an event organized by the cuban community, for the cuban
community.
Latinamerica is a big region, with so many interest and particular
needs that, in my opinion, an event of this type should organized by
all the communities, for all the communities (around 20 countries).

Yes, even for us, reaching Cuba from Argentina is expensive and a bit
more complex.

With the brazilean community we are planning to start to organize
talks (involving both countries) in more accessible places, like Porto
Alegre (br), Foz do Iguazu (br) or San Luis (ar), hosted in larger and
more established events like FISL, JRSL and Latinoware.
