At NZNOG09 in January we are intending on trying something a little
new - having a "Vendor Reception" on the Wednesday evening.
This is to give vendors the chance to meet people with glossy pieces
of paper handy, and also to encourage the social aspect of the
conference and networking with industry peers.
The format of this is roughly:
- Vendors/someone wanting to sell something sets up some sort of
stand, table, demo, whatever around a room/pool.
- Vendor swag encouraged.
- Open bar, possibly dinner depending on numbers and budget.
We may do a bit at some point early in the evening where vendors can
stand up and read out a short personals ad - we'll decide how that
goes closer to the time based on how many people are interested in
participating and exhibiting, and other arbitrary criteria we have yet
This will be open to sponsors automagically.
Non-sponsors can participate, and would be asked to contribute to
offset the cost of drinks and food for the evening.
Please contact me on nznog(a)daork.net if you're interested in exhibiting.
 Jonny "Mr Marketing" Martin suggests a bar leaner with a bottle of
some premium liquor.
 Those FX coffee mugs from 2002 or whenever it was were great, I
still use mine but I feel it's time for a change. Hint hint.
 "Short": adjective. An arbitrary period of time in minutes counted
on one hand.
