Booth photos from flickr:
That is our groovy new folding banner in the background. It collapses
down into a hard case approximately the size of a tuba, with rolling
wheels for easy transpo. It's a bit awkward for someone of my size
but not unmanageable. Two people makes it easier.
- We sold a lot of shirts. I did not keep an inventory & am basing
that conclusion on the amount of money we had in the cash box and the
fact that the remaining shirts fit in a single box.
- The USB keys did not do as well as we'd hoped. People really wanted
them as a freebie.
- We threw in a tin of M&Ms with t-shirt or usb key purchase. This
seemed to work well.
- The stickers were a big hit again & we were out of them by midway
through the second day.
- The bags remain a popular item.
- I believe we successfully deployed all of the EnterpriseDB mugs.
Two things I didn't get to do that I wanted to:
- Temporary tattoos. I couldn't find a merchant that looked
trustworthy & would make a run of less than 1000. I have some other
contacts for this item & will continue to look into it.
- List of Pg-related talks at OSCON. This was on my list of things to
prep and I let it slip. I'll try that again next time.
Thanks again to everyone who helped out.
