The Expo Space will be (together with most of the classrooms) upstairs (1st floor) of the venue. These rooms a classic classrooms and are normally used by a school. Main Expo Floors are in one 80 and two 50 square meter rooms with windows inbetween classrooms, so sponsors will not we all in one room, but right within the event. We will also have (ONLY TWO) small rooms of 18 sqare meters that can be booked as an exclusive room. First pick of those will go to our Sponsors of last years Online-Conference … after that they will be available until booked. There are only two, so that is a natural limit. Rooms will be locked (latest) 1 hour after expo closes and will be opened (earliest) one hour before expo starts, except for setup on friday and closing on sunday. There is an elevator that can be used!
This year there will be no full day food buffet, we will have snacks and fruits etc. available all day so nobody has to leave the venue to eat a bit, but it will not be a restaurant like it was in Unperfekthaus before. Softdrinks and Coffee/Tea will be available all day.
The Expo setup can start on Friday already from 9am – delivery and storage before that is NOT possible! We are checking with the venue if and when they will be open and available for possible shipments or such on wed and thu, but can’t promise for now! We will be at the venue thursday mid-day, it might be possible to have a room we can lock already late afternoon, we are still figuring out details!
For the participants, the Expo opens this year at 1pm (first class is fri. 11am – 12:30pm and a lunch break until 2pm), so there is at least 4 hours of time for setting up the booths! The (already 2019 established) new schedule structure will have two bigger breaks: from 12:30-2pm and 5:30-7pm. There are also short breaks between classes at 3:30 and 4pm. Expect those to be the “hot” shopping hours.
