If you really wanted to go that way, make it a "Workshop" with tutorials for the various apps and working with them.
Alternatively, let the LGM brand grow by letting it go, and support LGMs wherever they arise. The important thing for "the" LGM is the presence of core developers of key projects - but giving teams in other continents the possibility of getting together seems like a great thing to do. What you would need to make it successful is some common branding which people can customise for their event, and a common site top publicise all the other meetings.

What about a more generic Lg for users kind of name..... or is the
purpose to do a developer conference too?
LGUC, ie user conference. Then the same LGUC could be used for each
location.. LGUC, Scale 09... LGUC NZ 09..
