This was the same to many people before they organized one.
So step up and organize a local event!
Start with a Perl Monger meeting.
Have a common goal. (e.g. a shared project, creating a web application to your local pm group). Or creating a Perl Tutorial in your language. (Hint, you could help translating the one linked there.)
Get a (local?) company (that might be looking for Perl programmers) to sponsor your meetings. (the venue, the food, the drinks etc.) an you will provide the content.
Get started now.
