This is the overview of a good booth from the FSFE. Please pay attention to the following characteristics:
 * There should be at least two people standing at the booth the whole time. Even if there is no one in the moment to talk with - one person should keep standing. This makes it more attractable to other people to come and feel welcome to have a talk.
These are two '''examples''' of booths from the FSFE. They have different characteristics and each has its pros and cons. What is best depends on the audience and the event itself. You may want to follow a similar style as other booths at the event, but you also want to be different enough that people notice!

Please pay attention to the following characteristics:

 * There should ideally be two people at the booth the whole time. You can be behind or in front of the booth. Being in front of the booth is sometimes more welcoming, but you then need to be clearly identifiable as a booth staff by having a suitable t-shirt or similar. Sometimes one person behind the booth and one in front of is a good setup.

 * Keep your hands off private laptops, mobile phones, etc. These things should never lie around at the booth. If you want to check your mails go elsewhere.
 * In the front you should have some tables on which you present the different material from the FSFE. Please make sure, that the material is presented properly. For more details, see below
 * Behind your back you should present our posters from different campaigns. These are eyecatchers and will help you to attract people to come to the booth and ask questions. You should also have some posters with you to spread them if someone asks - see more details below.
 * In the right corner you see our roll-up. Having such a roll-up is very helpful in organising a booth, because it is an eyecatcher and it tells everyone which organisation is organising this booth - without having to ask

These are two examples of booths from the FSFE. They have different characteristics and each has its pros and cons. What is best depends on the audience and the event itself. You may want to follow a similar style as other booths at the event, but you also want to be different enough that people notice!

Please pay attention to the following characteristics:

  • There should ideally be two people at the booth the whole time. You can be behind or in front of the booth. Being in front of the booth is sometimes more welcoming, but you then need to be clearly identifiable as a booth staff by having a suitable t-shirt or similar. Sometimes one person behind the booth and one in front of is a good setup.
  • Do not sit at the booth! (this produces a lazy impression) Keep standing all the time. If you want to take a rest go elsewhere.
  • Keep your hands off private laptops, mobile phones, etc. These things should never be around at the booth. If you want to check your mails go elsewhere.
  • Please make sure, that the material you have is presented properly. For more details, see below
