Possible needs:
  • Poster?

  • 1 high table? drape? 2 stools/chairs? banner (1 FOSSGIS, 1 to be made), cloth banner ceiling (FOSSGIS)
  • screen? wired internet?

Please note: per august 2016 a new logo design and collaterale update is under way

  • stickers to be printed
  • OSGEo Flyer(s) to be printed

  • Banners:
I suggest both: OSGeo_popup and OSGeo_popup2
Ask printer/see on printer-site, whether  the PDF of SVG format is needed. Silk finish or silk matt finish for readability  (light glare during exhibitions is high)
  • Brochure:
(this is single A4 back and front)
I suggest minimum paperweight of 100 gram paper, silk or silk matt finished.
Ask printer to fold, preferably not do so yourself (bothersome and never a crips bend)
Usually I count max 100 brochures per exhibition day on average. Now, 300 will do I expect.
  • Table runner
If printer is able to print on cloth, you could order:
Please check with printer if PDF or SVG file format required
  • CD Live disk (latest version?)
Per FOSS4G 2016 this was 10.0 version

Presentations & Activities

  • not much space for presentations, perhaps rent a screen?
  • marketplace/message board (post-its and Header-sticker)
  • Happy hours Wed 24 & Thurs 25 17.00-18.30, format fixed #drinks in stock, first-come-first-serve.
