I think the real issue is that if there were an event we wanted to participate in there’s
not a great mechanism for us to collaboratively exhibit there. Other than one of the companies
involved in CloudStack to buy a booth and invite others to participate which has happened
but is far from ideal.

I wouldn't get too downbeat about it
Events like CWF are pay to play and always have been

Kind Regards

I just thought I'd share a conversation I've had with the organisers of  Cloud World Forum.

As I'm down to attend, the guy rings asking about Pointgreen and if we want to exhibit/sponsor
the show. I politely decline, but then ask would the show not benefit from say a 'Cloudstack'
presentation, to which the response is 'they'll have to pay'.

I'd explain this is Apache Open Source community offering, but the guy wont budge, rules are
rules, even though the benefit to the audience could be significant.

Question is, how do you educate folks, especially in the Enterprise market, if forums like
this are closed due to cost?
