Furniture etc you need to bring yourself

Some furniture is really expensive to order or not available at all. Try to bring them yourself. We might do some shopping trips on Saturday, May 18th, so if you need anything and can't organize it yourself, let us know. Or if you want to join us on the shopping trip and help with carrying our purchases, send us an email!

Item Name Comments
Shelves Ridiculously expensive when ordered from booth builder. But might be useful to utilize storage room better. Consider bringing a simple Ikea shelf or a shelf from a home improvement store.
Sofa tables I would suggest to get an Ikea LACK table instead. If you need one, let us know which color. We will go to Ikea anyway to get

some kitchen equipment for the project catering.

Flowers & Plants Way too expensive to order them through Messe Berlin services. If you want to decorate your booth with flowers or plants, bring them yourself.

Carpet and Flat Beam System

After having bland grey carpets in 2011 and blue carpets in 2012, projects can select their preferred color this year. Here is a photo of a booth with blue carpet (Mozilla, 2010):

We will have the fancy flat beam system again like in 2011. Projector boards ("Beamerhalterung") for this are really expensive, so we provide them only if our budget allows and only by special request.

A word about costs and budget

You all applied and were accepted to exhibit your projects at this year's LinuxTag exhibition. We provide you with a booth, including carpet, wall elements, and furniture. This means we pay for this, not you.

We have a limited budget for the booth furniture, so we need to use it wisely. This year, we have a lot of projects and a lot of booth space. So we ask you to only request furniture that you really need and that you will use it appropriately.


We love the Infopoints because they are great for presenting software on a screen or laptop to the visitors. They have an optimal height, storage space, and look good. But they are really really expensive!

So if you request an infopoint, please use it as it is intended to demo your software. If you don't really need an infopoint, request a table.

What we don't want to see this year is projects using the infopoints just for flyers or as a sales counter!

Of course, if you really want one and pay for it out of your own pocket, then you can use it however you like.

Storage Space

We have added small storage rooms to your booth. These storage rooms are 1sqm in size, sometimes 2sqm. So they take away space from your booth. They are necessary to hide the network switches and power supplies, but can be used by your team to store flyers, give-aways, and the bags of your team members. In 2013 these cabins (or "Kabuff" as some call them) do not cost us anything extra, as the price is included in the booth setup. And since we cannot provide sideboards this year, you can use these to store your stuff. They are not suitable to store valuables over night though!

If you need to store the jackets and backpacks of your team members, please consider using the cloakroom ("Garderobe") in the entrance area of hall 7.
