i think it is always possible to organize some sort of table like a
bar-table or so used for all kinds of events and availible almost
everywhere for like 10 a day for rent...

very right. but for me, it would certantly be easier, if i had a table
to stand on, and not just look like another "ordinary" visitor. it
will also be easier to draw attantion and to get the people ask you

i think one table and a few ( no more than 4) chairs would be
apropriate... as this booth looks pretty small.
