Hi all,

I was contacted by people organizing the yearly Finnish GIS expo. He 
wrote that they had thought about FOSS4G as a theme (there are probably 
other themes too) for the Expo and had already asked a distinguished 
non-finnish member of the community (he's in the OSGeo board but as I 
understood that he's not yet fully promised so I won't put his name 
here) as a keynote speaker. I also agreed to talk at the Expo.

I started to think that if FOSS4G is a theme, then maybe we should have 
a OSGeo booth too. We don't yet have a Finnish OSGeo chapter so this is 
a call for anybody living in Finland to participate. The booths start at 
105 €/m2 but cheapest may be a 3m2 booth which costs 720 €. Not cheap. 
We'd also need volunteers who know about OSGeo software. That might be 
the first thing to secure before going forward.

Help and advise appreciated,
