Yes, while these Demo-Points with bar stools are very useful, they are
often simply not available. In this case, the exhibition hall was the
foyer of the lecture hall building and Debian got some tables from
seminary rooms.

That didn't stopped the people from other booths to stand, waiting for
visitors to come and greeting them eye to eye.

I wouldn't throw stools away, just put them in the background, just in
case there is a visitor, who gets something shown, which takes a bit longer.

Best regards,

PS: I would also like to note, that the organizers of this event did
take care, that there are tables, banks and more or less quite rooms
available for booth personal and speakers. So there was really no need
to sit at the booth hacking.
