1. Stand space - do we have set limits?
We stayed clear from taping boundaries onto the ground, but we
measured the available space, did the maths and communicated the
area expectations to the sponsors. It all worked out and while some
sponsors used up more space than others, nobody complained or got
into each others' way.
I'd still think it's necessary to communicate the rules up front so
that it's easier to enact when necessary.
If you're planning 2×2 as your e-mail said, then that's pretty
tight. I'd probably go for 3×3 instead if possible, and also
communicate that there'll be 1–2m between stalls of space.
You usually want a hierarchy so (suggestion!):
Silver: 2m width (up to 1m depth), we provide a standing table and two
Gold: 3m width (up to 1m depth), we provide a standing table and three
Platinum: 4m width (up to 1.5m depth), we provide a two standing tables

As said earlier - 4h is enough for people that have to stand around and
talk to a hundred new faces in that time.
You can make it 2x4h on Sat. and Sun. _if_ you can generate enough local
people to come and visit the job fair.
For the DebConf participants just one half day (4h e.g on Sun.) would be
Small rooms nearby to go and have a quick private conversation are
helpful. But they need to be within 1-2min walking distance.
Having a storage room for swag (and parts of the booth if multiple days)
nearby is very helpful.
We used fulfillment@ as the contact point for sponsors of DC15 after
they had committed.
There were more than 100 questions mostly around the job fair, swag/bag
access and mailing stuff logistics handled so I suggest doing the same
for DC16 to keep the noise off sponsors@ with its RT backend.
