I’ve created a page which links a list of all exhibitors at this year’s General Assembly to its website. My way of adding to the virtual General Assembly experience I encourage.
It seems a rather small list. Several organizations that I assumed would exhibit aren’t and several that are share booths. (Signs of future mergers?) The best measure of health is returning organizations, especially those otherwise unaffiliated with the UUA. They would come back if they saw a good return on investment. Compare the current list with last year’s. (Warning: PDF download.)
If I ran an organization with programming, I would have members with identifying badges and handbills — perhaps in a business card format — promoting the events and steering people to the website. Which reminds me: these sites are like the Little Girl With A Little Curl. Be warned.
Lastly, if you see error or want to make comments, make them here and I’ll adjust the page.
A higher proportion than I would have guessed are UUA departments or functions and with changes in affiliate status I wonder if the exhibit hall (as we know it) is doomed. It should be a net money maker for General Assembly, but I can’t see how that is now.
