After the Event
OSGeo was present at the Géoévénement tradeshow with a booth inside an Open Source Village. A "big poster" was created as well as some brochure in french to present OSGeo Fundation and a short description for each project. The booth was in a great place (close to the main entry).
Conferences on Open Source thematic were a great success. People asked a lot of questions as we could see it at the booth: OSGeo presentation - organisation, incubation process, funding, ...- projects presentation - comparations, demonstration, ...
