[Marketing] Exhibition Pack

Looking at past events with OSGeo representation we have:
Skiming through and counting only one year for each past event, I get
between 25 and 30 events which have had an OSGeo presence.
Maybe that is a number we should be targeting, however I suspect that if
we set up an easy to use conference pack, we will likely get more
requests for the pack as people start branching out into smaller or less
