No, it is actually Scope(the show organisors) who invited us to host a
stand at the show. I don't know why they put us in the IIA area, but
it's a chance for us to make some impact on the crowd.
FYI, the stand we're getting is worth almost £1000.. the Scope people
have been very organised, and even though I've been contacted about
advertising in the Sunday Business Post ("So, you haven't got any
marketing budget. Is there a Linux Company I can contact?") everything's
gone well so far.
Here's looking forward to Linux World next year ;)
