We are starting to plan World Plone Day, a coordinated worldwide series of meetups, seminars, and workshops, first started in 2008:
Activities ranged from small, informal gatherings with ad hoc presentations to large, formal sessions with a half dozen presentations, refreshments, and door prizes. Brasilia, Brazil had the largest event with 128 attendees. Events were tied together in more than enthusiasm for Plone--live blogging, Twitter, and streaming video were all used to interconnect participants.

If you are interested in hosting a local WPD event, please stand by while we assemble the planning team.
First priorities will likely be:
- deciding when to hold WPD 2017: in recent years, WPD has taken place on the last Friday of April (would be April 28, 2017, but that is close to PLOG in Sorrento, April 18-22, and do we want to give ourselves more time?)
- determining how to have local events registered centrally so we can advertise most effectively, e.g. https://old.plone.org/events/wpd/world-plone-day-april-29th-2015 seemed to have been nicely thought out
- identifying all communications channels and deciding which ones to continue using (e.g. who controls the @worldploneday Twitter account?, a WPD@plone.org email address)
