Here are two potential layouts for the booth space.
Here is the layout for the booth space.  A couple computer Internet cafe stations will be set up at the bottom of fringe of the booth.
The first one is nicer because it leaves more open space without blocking people into the booth space.  The following layout is more enclosed but allows more people from the aisles to see the video screen.  Included in both designs are informal seating, pedestal tables and literature racks.

Volunteers - sign up now, take a slot or two in the Schedule below...

Venue Info

  • OSGeo will be in the main exhibition hall, in a double sized booth that faces the rear of the hall (where some of the food/beverages will be).
  • The space immediately in front is emtpy and is the same size as the double booth. It will be clearer once I get a diagram together, but it could be used for a lounge or stands, etc. as well.
  • We have booth spaces 16, 17, 18, 19 - with the general idea that 17/18 are not normal booths but mostly open space covering a 16x20 foot area.
  • See room layout here.
