1. Assigning booths
I've finally managed to assign space to all booths, in the hope
that I took care of all space requirements. Please find the
current map of all projects at the following URL. There will be
six different pavillons, hosting two or more projects. To give
you a better view of the size of each booth, I've added dots to
the graphic. The distance between two dots is one meter.
When I've written "booth" expect another booth on that side.
When I've written "wall" expect a wall on that side.
Also expect a wall to be between two booths, except where I
haven't placed a line (i.e. between Gnome and GIMP and between JLA
and the booths in 5.0.434.1. The other sides of the booth should
Note: Some people already knew this url, some things have changed
since you last viewed it.
There are three storerooms which are dedicated to all projects.
These areas don't have dots, so you should be able to detect them
easily. Please use them to store your stuff like bags, coats,
superflous shoes and computers etc. so the booth will look
They can be entered through these booths: Debian, Linux-Audio and
Linux User Groups. The doors will have locks so they can be
locked during the night. One of the booth staff will get the key.
3. Supplies for the booth
This year I've got a little bit more time before equipment has to
be ordered. Unfortunately I've used the time to assign the booth
and now there is not much time left. (Note to self: next year
pester officials about deadlines much more).
However, I've created a list of possible equipment that we can use
for the booth. Please pick up the things that you would like to
use at the booth. And, sorry, please hurry up with selecting
Please be careful with ordering tables, there should not be more
tables than there is space at the walls in the booth. I've added
size information to all supplies, if I was able to discover them.
4. Arrival via plane
We will have a shuttle service between the exhibition and the
airport on the 4th and 5th of July and on the 8th and 9th. If you
want to be picked up from the airport or taken to it, please tell
me your flight details (date+time of arrival, flight nr, next/last
airport) and I'll add you to my list.
5. Arrival via train
If you will arrive by train, take the subway U7 driving into
direction "Messe/Killesberg". The last station is Stuttgart Fair
where you should be able to get into the exhibition area.
6. Computers on tables
Last year we ran into big trouble after the show when the company
came to pick up their tables. They had to find out that most of
them were scratched.
While I don't want to instruct you how to set up the booth I'd
like to urge you to use table cloths ("Tischdecken"), cardboards
or some plastic stuff between metal stuff and the tables. Apart
from keeping tables unscratched table cloths would make the booth
look little more professional and hide whatever you place below
7. Social Event
We will have a social event to which all exhibitors are invited to
attend. Those of you who knew last year's social event may be a
little bit surprised, since it will be different. Enjoy it.
It has been acknowledged that we will get a special price of DM 30
(instead of EUR 30). The tickets can be purchased during the
exhibition and the days before by Dennis Daniel at the LinuxTag
office. It's possible that he's going walk around the exhibition
and visit the pavillons. He did that last year, only to confuse
my plans, I'm pretty sure.
You will be granted the reduced fee if your name is listed on the
list of staff for the Projects Pavillons or he is able to draw a
line between you and a known project. Thus it's much more secure
if your name is on the list. Thus the best way is to tell me who
will staff the booth, if you haven't done already.
The Social Event will take place on Friday at 18.15 at the lobby
at entrance south. There will be something to eat, to drink and a
band, and maybe something surprising. :)
For those of you who will stay at the gym hall, the FaVeVe folks
have compiled some questions and answers (only in German, sorry,
bug them, not me) regarding the accommodati at Nili's. More at:
