Both options are complementary. xmpp.org website is more like you give a
central, but rather static information link. But people are looking for
news on the blog. So on the blog, we can make a small entry "hey guys,
there is a conference this day this place, and we will speak about XMPP."
and add a link to the static website.

How I see it on the website:
- On the main page, I would add a link "Events" on the left which directs
to http://xmpp.org/events/index.html.
- In http://xmpp.org/events/index.html, there would be a list of upcoming
events (with just the name of the events, the date and the place) and a
list of past events. And if people click on the events name, it would
direct to dedicated small page (stored in http://xmpp.org/events/ ) with
description of the event, program and feedback.
- On the main page as well, we may also add, under "Latest Spec Updates"
and "Latest Blog Posts" a few direct links to the closest XMPP-related
events.
