Shouldn't there be information about sub-projects available at the booth
that could be handed out to visitors?

Food is a problem all the time. I've also had too much foo due to
incorrect planning and told some projects that they're invited for
lunch so I don't have to throw it away.

Don't open it up for everybody too late.

There was storage space and it was announced in the sixth infomail:
If you don't need random access during the day, it was suited perfectly.
If merchandise at the booth takes too much space, and the booth should
be used for the projects' products after all and not for merchandise,
we can move merchandise into the Stadthalle. The left bar is unused
except for business congress registration. There's also a bit of
storage space within the counter. It could be separated into 1-4
parts for 1-4 projects.
