Details on how to arrive, address of the venue, public transportation options, etc, can be found here (unfortunately it is only in Spanish):


The booth will be located in the Community Village.



We will have a portion of ASF swag to give away (mini USB hubs, pens, lapel pins, webcam covers, and stickers).

Due to circumstances, this will be a very limited supply so distribute sparsely!

Rule of thumb here: You talk to us, you get swag. If you're only there for the swag, tough luck, buddy!

Remember: Projects can bring their own marketing material to distribute on the booth

Marketing and messages

For the booth to become a success we need to do both internal and external marketing. We will be promoting OpenExpo on the Community Development mailing lists and will ask Sally to help us draw a blog post and news bulletin.

It might be good to send an email out to all our projects as the conference is completely free.
