  6. Swag and printed materials (hcderaad, 13:15:18)
    1. With little over 3 weeks to go we also need to start to focus on the physical conference items! (hcderaad, 13:15:20)
    2. This presents us with a challenge, because we expect quite a lot of last minute registrations, we’re not sure how many items to order. (hcderaad, 13:15:21)
    3. We therefore suggest to get some extra “headroom” and ordering plastic bags instead of cotton. We’re simply using the Conference Logo as startint point. (hcderaad, 13:15:23)
    4. From the Tourist info board we will receive enough city maps and other tourist info. (hcderaad, 13:15:24)
    5. The sponsors will be approached to deliver their swag in time as well. (hcderaad, 13:15:26)
    6. If we save money with this approach, we’ll be sure to spend that on the conference itself and the social events! (hcderaad, 13:15:27)

  7. Other points by participants (hcderaad, 13:17:03)
