How do I find people and conferences in my region?

Forgive me if I missed this. Any way to choose a region to help connecting physically around a conference speaker or related?

Thanks for a great mechanism for virtual connections!

Not sure if this will answer all your questions but here is a link to RZIM main site. It is an event calendar with a number of filter including location. I hope this helps.
