Report

The booth was manned by 4 volunteers, with necessary material (decoration, promotion and hardware).

As usual, a lot of visitors from 10 to 13 h. and quiet in the afternoon. We had contact with several people which we convinced last year to test and change to Ubuntu : they had sometimes a list of questions or problems they had to cope with, but were very positive.

With an initial stock of 50 Canonical CD's and home-burned CD's, we distributed approximately 40 CD's to apparently interested people, with a lot of explanation.

Finance :

- public gifts : 42,90 euros

- booth fees : 38,50 euros

- material (100 CD-R's, partly for the next Dipro fairs) : 25 euros

- saldo : - 20,90 euros

Remark : call for public gifts is not always successful to cover the booth fees and the cost of the organization (distribution of CD's and other material).

Selling the CD's for a contribution (minimum 1 euro/piece) is a possibility to guarantee a part of the revenue. Another possibility is to sell promotional articles, like T-shirts, pets, and gadgets.

Ubuntu-be should decide an Ubuntu-be policy in this matter.
