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
 * Behind you, you should present some posters from different campaigns. These are eyecatchers and will help you attract people to come to the booth and ask questions.
 * 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.

How to design a booth

This page shall help you to set-up and design your personal FSFE booth. Because although that each booth is different, we try to represent a corporate identity. Also, we like to share good and bad practices to learn from each other.

Below you find various pictures 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!

Make a good first impression

There is no second chance for the first impression, so pay attention to your appearance

  • There should ideally be two people at the booth the whole time. If you are two person, one can be behind and the other 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.
  • Do not sit at the booth! Sitting produces a lazy impression, so 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.
  • Keep your eyes and arms open, look welcoming and easy to communicate with.
  • Do not wear a brand of any disputable organisation including political parties, soccer teams, national flags etc. In the best case you wear an item of FSFE or something neutral.
  • Do not leave anything else on the booth-table than the booth-material (eg your water bottle, food, a text-note etc).
  • Try to use the surrounding: If you have a wall behind you, you can put some posters from different campaigns. These are eyecatchers and will help you attract people to come to the booth and ask questions. Maybe you can also use a pillar or a wall next to you, but in any case ask the organisers and neighbours first before you improve your environment.
  • Make use of our Booth-Equipment (including our branded banner and donation box)

Little helpers

  • If you run an outdoor booth, use binder clips to keep stacks of flyers from flying away (pun intended).
