I've never attended any IST fair but I participated in one of long-term
project founded by IST - http://www.felis.uni-freiburg.de/regeo/English/

AFAIK, IST supports substantial amount of GIS (and realted)
projects and programs in Europe, especially projects involving
international teams.

Personally, I see IST may definitely be an interesting
partner for OSGeo.

I don't know much.
I'd be interested to attend if time will allow.
