Then don't sell things.  You don't have to.

Quick info for running a booth:

First get:

  1. One table
  2. One chair
  3. A connected power cable
  4. One machine with monitor
  5. Get a banner or a poster
  6. Get two people to staff the booth
  7. Be around at least one hour befor it opens
  8. Be prepared for stupid questions and a lot of talking

IP connectivity is optional, get more people and space if possible,
table cloths always look nicer than a naked table, running X and
something impressive is helpful, don't forget your power splitter

Two people should be considered minimum staff so one person can leave
the booth for a moment.



This is Linux Country.  On a quiet night, you can hear Windows reboot.
