I will probably be the only one representing the Mapbender project at FOSS4G as the Intergeo runs parallel. It is a 15,000+ visitors Germany-based GIS trade fair and all and everybody in Europe seems to be going there as it is the place to spend money. As I also have to attend to a small WhereGroup booth at FOSS4G and will try to fulfill my new job as president showing up at the OSGeo booth at the same it would be just perfect if you could arrange to have the WhereGroup booth nearby. It guess it is only a banner anyway. Then I can also answer questions regarding Mapbender, give out brochures and show it live. I know this sounds like taking advantage of being president and it probably is - which is why I send it to discuss so that all can see what a mean advantage seeking business mucker I am. Hehe.
