Hi Gert-Jan,
The marketing committee is quite dormant, so pretty much any suggestion 
you put forward which you are prepared to make happen yourself will be fine.

In the past, OSGeo has made use of cafepress for shirts, hats, etc:

You might want to look into that, or find something similar.

I'd suggest also consider distributing an OSGeo-Live USB. (8 Gig or 
larger). This is a great marketing pipeline for each of the projects on 
OSGeo-Live. It can also be used in workshops. And delegates can use it 
when they go back to their organisations and are asked to give a 
presentation about the conference to their workmates. The OSGeo-Live 
presentation is on the USB.
