Hi Astrid,
Looking back over the Marketing website[1], I see that almost all our 
material (apart from OSGeo-Live) is out of date. (The site would benefit 
a lot from a bit of a clean up, archiving all the old material).

With regards to fliers, my experience at OSGeo Booths is that it is not 
valuable to have many fliers at a stand.
You are better to have only one flier, which contains a URL to the OSGeo 
website, and OSGeo-Live project, where people can find the extra 
We did have a 2 sided A4 flier, but I can't seem to find it.

You can often do better just having a laptop running OSGeo-Live, and 
point people at the documentation if they ask. (The can search for 
OSGeo-Live on the web later).
