FYI, for the Ohio Linux Fest folks.  We requested power and contributed 
a bit extra for the Fedora table, but the event organizers should 
triple-check to make sure we have it.  Red Hat's also sponsoring, but I 
don't know what sort of booth or table the corporate folks will have. 
But there's a nice opportunity to try to have everyone go out to dinner, 
and share some perspectives from the community <-> corporate 
bi-directionally.  Someone can send me the receipt if one of my fellow 
Red Hatter's doesn't pick it up (which they should).  :)

  *Dear Ohio LinuxFest Exhibitor,

The purpose of this email is to inform you about your exhibitor space at the 
Ohio LinuxFest.

**Event Venue Facts:
Ohio LinuxFest expo will take place on Saturday September 11, 2010 from 8 A.M. 
to 6 P.M. at Greater Columbus Convention Center, 400 North High Street 
Columbus, Ohio 43215. The convention center is blocks North-East of the 
Nation-Wide Arena in downtown Columbus. Parking ranges from 12-24 dollars for

the Drury.

Table and Booth facts:
Every table and booth is in the foyer of ballrooms 1, 2, and 3 giving you 
maximum exposure to our estimated +1500 guests. Each exhibitor gets a 6 foot

either is against the wall or has a curtain back. **The Greater Columbus 
Convention Center does not allow any tape on the walls.  Please purchase 
"Teacher's Putty" if your booth is against a wall.**
