That's not possible.  We can't put their logo somewhere for sponsoring
something similar to EUR 600 while other companies have to actualley
*pay* EUR 10,000 for that.

They'd have to pay a lot more to be accepted as sponsor.  We can't
provide sponsor space like that, it would make real sponsors angry,
and they do actually pay for the booths for the projects.

Haha!  From my experience, I won't get proper results, and apart from
that three days in advance is not enough.

I just want to let you know that, even while the situation with the
social event was public for quite a while, about 30 people still
didn't manage to hit the proper button to get a ticket reserved.

Do you really believe it'll work better with tram tickets?

Ok, are you going to purchase the tickets from your own pociet and
find the person who has to pay for it to reimburse your costs?

(* 60 4 1.90) = 456.0 EUR
(* 50 4 1.90) = 380.0 EUR

I don't really believe that's worth my time when there are more
imporant things to do.



There are lies, statistics and benchmarks.
