Equipment

What kind of equipment should be available? How large is the booth footprint? Will internet taps be available?

Basic Booth Includes:
   8’x10’ exhibit space
   Pipe and drape, 8’ back and 3’ sides
   1 table
   2 chairs
   Wireless internet
   2 booth personnel passes
  • OSGeo booth will be double-width - so 8x20' with two tables, 4 chairs.
  • Volunteers should bring their own laptop if possible. Maybe have a larger desktop monitor there too. Or projector? (or JumboTron...)
  • Pop-up Banner: Robert Hollingsworth shipped the banner, it is available behind the black curtain at Registration
  • Consider adding 1 "discussion" pedestal table and chairs?
  • Monitor rental?

Handouts

What handouts will be available, who/where will they be printed?

  • Brochures, sponsorship postcards, business info cards - Tyler/Robert shipping to GITA, will be available at event registration
  • Poster showing sponsors! - to be printed
  • ...

Presentations

What kinds of live demonstrations or recorded examples can be played at the booth? Where can they be downloaded from or who can run them?

  • If there are multiple booth volunteers, therefore multiple laptops, might simplify by having canned demos/videos, manual demos, and associated data living on a server somewhere.
  • OSGeo Live - Everyone is getting a DVD or USB in their bag, so either boot from media or run in a Virtual Machine.
