Hi to all,

Here the report on the Dipro fair Charleroit - 11/10/2009 (available 
with pictures in the wiki


/Ubuntu Belgium Events Team/


Following the last minute withdrawal of Ubuntu-be members, mainly for 
health reasons, the Ubuntu-be booth at DIPRO fair Charleroi was 
organized and manned by members of the local LUG's:

- Peter Lucas, Mark and Cedric Heerbrant Bernard Beekwilder, Bailleux 
Gilles and Didier Misson (CULButte),
- Pierre Willot of Sambrelug and Namurlug,
- Lawrence Pascozzo of Loligrub.

CULButte is a group of Linux users ("LUG") from Braine-l'Alleud-Waterloo 
and surrounding area (Brabant Wallon).

The booth (3 tables) was equipped with 6 laptops. The material supplied 
by Ubuntu-be (Cedric Janssens) (posters, folders and CDs Ubuntu 9.04) 
was very well suited to introduce Ubuntu to the public. The lack of 
preparation has been felt at the animation of the booth through 
presentations, videos and other promotional materials.

The public was interested, especially in the morning, with multiple 
questions, sometimes very specific. The atmosphere was nice. Among the 
questions, several looking for contacts "And in Charleroi, there is a 
Linux club ? Ubuntu club ?" ... There is a clear demand for more 
contacts about Linux and Ubuntu in Charleroi area.

Despite a very short preparation, the participation at this fair was an 
interesting event for the participants and for an active cooperation 
between Ubuntu-be and LUG's.

Finance: 19 euros for the stand, with 14.50 euros donations. A better 
presentation of the CD's with appeal for donations would have been more 
effective to solicit public donations.

_Summary_ : this was a positive experience. Ubuntu-be should repeat the 
organization of such events, in Charleroi and elsewhere, with a better 
coordination Ubuntu-be - LUGs and an improved preparation.
