I think that stuff is excellent. I bet they would be really helpful when
organising a conference. I'm sure if you wanted to sell things like
t-shirts and stickers they would also be very popular.

IMO sending them out when asked for is the best solution: there may be
more than one conference in a particular place, and different people
might attend. I agree that the best solution would be to ask the team
contact to arrange this.

That is great to hear as well. Look forward to more news.

Sorry that this email isn't terribly helpful, but I wanted to express
something positive :)
