Scratchpad for ideas for OSGeo Booth at FOSS4G

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

  • develop a mini-park in same spirit as OSGeo open source park at InterGeo ?
  • help promote non-software projects/ideas, ie. host local data and interop demo (discuss with conf. committee) ?
  • split booth between basic organisational info and software demos ?
