OSCON 2017 Booth application

Mark Wong
Hi everyone,

OSCON is in Portland, Oregon this year, July 16-19.  One of us in the
Portland PostgreSQL User Group will be submitting an application for a
booth when that opens up.  We will update on the results of that, and
continue to organize a presence if accepted.

Regards,
Mark

Unfortunately OSCON has informed us that our application for a spot in
the Non Profit Pavilion was been turned down.  We won't be exhibiting at
OSCON this year.

Mark

What was OSCON's reason given for turning you down?  Was there another
Postgres-focused booth in the community area? -- Darren

All of the Non Profit spaces were taken.

bottom of the page) [1] it doesn't appear that any of the 10 currently
shown organizations are another Postgres-focused booth in the community
area.

Guys,

So let me get this straight, Josh Berkus is a featured speaker, his picture is on the front page of OSCON website, but yet we don't have a booth right?

Yeah, I noticed that, too.

Unless they’ve significantly downsized the community footprint in the Expo for 2018, I don’t think that all of the nonprofits are listed as of yet. There’s several other recurring NPOs I’d expect to see. 

I’m going to reach out directly to my O’Reilly community engagement contacts for insight. It would be a shame not to have a Postgres organization (with roots in Oregon) to be left out. 

Mark — make sure that you ask to be waitlisted. We were initially told no in 2016, but I persisted and requested to be waitlisted. No issues for 2017.

Sincerely 
Debbie

Yes, the Portland group has certainly gone through that before too.

To be fair, Josh Berkus is listed as "Josh Berkus is a Kubernetes
community manager at Red Hat".
