We need tables/demopoints, but we don't need tables for "sit down when
talking with the visitors". (IMHO)

a 'sit down when talking with the visitors' is not showing debian...

yes. This is a difference

to Thimo Neubauer: 
  make you a 'Debian on Laptops' talk on the debian day too?

to Thimo Neubauer:
  can we get some numbers? 
  How much must the distance between the white wall and the beamer to
  get a 1.20x1.5 Screen on the wall?

yes. I know this. 

We must put the beamer station at one site of the booth. This site must
have a Wall and we must seperate this whole site with something. Maybe
a small table, a shelf or 'Flatterband'....
