I think this approach would be fine.  I'd suggest:
  o Try to set aside a chunk of counter/table space for OSGeo handouts.
  o Try to avoid mixing corporate an OSGeo materials more than is necessary.
  o It would be nice if folks understood they could ask you folks questions
    about OSGeo.
  o Possibly have any OSGeo t-shirt for someone who is ready to answer OSGeo
    related questions.
