I was wondering about events LIKE Scale, and not Scale itself. I know that Jean a the crew that deal with Scale are good at getting what they need for their table, but there are events like Scale that could use help.

That is way I stated "planned to have" in the 2013 and 2014 budgets for such events. Last year, there was a FOSS presence in an event about an hour's drive from me in a city that has one BIG and a few smaller colleges in and around it. If there were events like that that could use help getting the needed items to make a good LO booth, I hope there would be plans in the works to help these events that are much smaller than and event like Scale.

I see a listing of what a "marketing booth kit" could include, in earlier postings of this thread. It is really nice to have marketing materials, handouts, and such. But, I am just concerned with the abilities of the smaller local and regional shows to get the needed materials that the larger shows have access to. If there was a "tech show" in my area, it would not be even 1/10 as big as Scale could be. I know that I would not have the ability to get the funds locally to put on a good showing at a LO booth. There are few options for the smaller communities like mine or in my region of the State.

What I hope is that there would be marketing funds available to these smaller groups and their region's shows.

Yes, the big shows like Scale can really have big turnouts. The problem is that there are not going to be any big events that are less than a 5 hour drive from my area for local business leaders and user to go to. I would like help figuring out how to best market to these people, including a private college that is over 150 years old and a community college that is over 50 years old.

Hi Tim,

Le 2012-11-17 11:45, webmaster-Kracked_P_P a écrit :

SCALE 11X show/event is coming in a few months. I wonder what they would
list for items needed for that type of show?

I know they hand out DVD "professionally" made for that event. What
would be that type of costs and would TDF/LO have marketing funds
available [or planned to have] in the 2013/2014 budgets to help defray
those types of marketing costs?
Jean is point person on this particular item. As far as I understand, yes there is money available. 
The budget money needs to be requested/approved by the BoD (Board of Directors) and submitted, most 
likely, by Jean.

This is different from what this thread is about as we are just getting our wishlist together and 
it will try to be a generic approximate price for budgetary/planning purposes.


I will reply to this on a separate thread a bit later today. --Jean
