I think that's helpful.  If nothing else, hopefully it will lighten
Matto's load, since a "talk room" poster could be a single source file
that I print N times.

And just for my edification, that's the single logo for the talk rooms
and the set of logos for the Front Desk, right?

Regarding formats, I noticed yesterday that 18"x20" is also an option
for smaller signs on photo paper.

Thank you for the suggestions.  I have seen some 36x48 boards, which
will only have to be cut once to get (2) 24x36 backings.  I should have
boards by Friday.

Timely that you bring this up.  Temporarily ignoring the ad-hoc badge
printing we will do, are we ready to get an export from the Summit
database that contains this information for the confirmed attendees?  If
so, any suggestions as to who might be the best person to produce that?

Thank you for the information!
