Venue Informtion edit
Booth Setup edit
Approximately 200 DVDs were handed out. The openSUSE booth was a great attraction. We were the only Linux OS vendor there. The other OS was PC-BSD. We were also the only vendor with a fully decorated booth and our position was right as you enter the exhibit hall area, so openSUSE was the first thing you see when you get there. Don Vosburg and Bryen Yunashko both gave great presentations. It's a smallish event, mainly local people. Not many major projects there. But a very enthusiastic crowd, nonetheless with lots of good topics discussed.
Some notes for future reference: - While ILF is a two-day event, the first day is primarily workshops and training events. Exhibit hall and general sessions is only open on the second day (Saturday.) Advise, next time, if you are able to arrive in Indianapolis early morning and return home same day in the evening, this will save on future costs. - We paid additional for electricity in order to power our laptops in the exhibit hall. But it turned out, we simply used wall outlets which was available to everyone. Advise next time if event is held in the same hotel, we do not need to pay for electrical charges.
