This is the first time I'm organizing an event for Fedora Project,
here I would start off with Fedora 9 Release Party on my campus. I'd
like to get some advices, comments, feedbacks, suggestions, etc from
those who've been more experienced in organizing Fedora events.
Here's my plan for the Fedora 9 Release Party at California State
University, Los Angeles:
1. Time, Date, and Place
Time: 12:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Date: Friday, May 9, 2008
Location: California State University, Los Angeles
Building: College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology
Room: E&T A220
2. Marketing Materials
- Fedora 9 Banners: Print these on this Friday at Kinko's like this
and post it around campus next week. I'm going to look for some design
from the Media Arts team.
- Fliers: To be given out and put on all around campus, the
fliers should have the design design of the Fedora 9 coming up design
release, and that there's a website where they could vote
(http://acm.calstatela.edu/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2487) on, time, date,
place where the event will be held. That way I could anticipate on how
many people would come to the event. These will be printed at the same
time when I print the banner. Voting is not required to come to the
event, some people have a time, some don't, but I encouraged them to
do so, so that I can anticipate numbers.
- Me and some of my team on campus would give some class announcements
about the event.
3. At the Event
- Someone gives a talk during the event about Fedora 9. I'm thinking
about Thomas , since he's probably also the only one who's around
in my area? Or someone from Red Hat?
- Free pizzas and sodas at the event for all of the attendance. (am I
going to get reimbursement for this?)
- USB Creation Stations
- Free Fedora 9 Live CDs
- Free Fedora 9 DVDs
- Questions and Answers sessions
12:00 - 12:30 Opening Remarks
12:30 - 1:30 Lunch
1:30 - 2:30 Guest Speaker(s) (will be decided)
2:30 - 3:30 Questions and Answers
Please give me inputs, feedbacks, comments, etc.
