I'll at least take the Amiga with me, as it also contains a good deal of
private data that I cannot backup/erase easily. As for the Sparc, I can leave
it there and someone else from Karlsruhe (like Juergen Erhard - don't know
with whom he'll drive) could take that machine back with him on Sunday.
Of course, I'll take my monitor with me already on Saturday as well.
Is there any chance that the Messe AG of Stuttgart or someone from LinuxTag
e.V. is providing monitors?

I did a mgp presentation last year for the LinuxTag though it was not used
there (it was much rather a slideshow to accompany a lecture). It's e.g.
at I don't know right now
how this cuold be modified into a self-running demo (that is, with certain
timeouts after each slide), but anyone able to do that is free to try so.

Such a demo could also run on a less powerful machine - I believe the
resources mgp requires are not all that high.
