Showcase your product or project at a table during breaks

There is space for 10 interested organisations to have a light weight show&tell table during the breaks. This is for free and it is intended to be simple home-base to showcase your doings for other participants, focus is on discussions and networking. Recommended setting would be one person and laptop (if you want to show something) + possibly a roll-up and some print-outs if you feel like.
