Submission + - How to promote a small conference->

HLUG writes: "My Linux user group is putting on a one day conference introducing small businesses and end users to free and open source software (presentations planned include zimbra, openoffice, asterisk and of course Linux). While I am able to put together the conference — arrange presentations, the venue, registration, etc. — I'm at a loss of how to promote it effectively. The very people I'd like to reach are a couple of degrees removed from my normal networking ties. Has anyone else done something similar or does anyone have any tips?"
