GUADEC Press Room

Posted by javi vazquez on June 15, 2006

The last days I have been working in GUADEC 2006 Press Room, something need to spread the existence of our great GNOME conference.

In this press media and press section, we will have basic press material such the GUADEC press kit, a link to the schedule, a couple of cool stories such as one about The Portland Project, links to pictures and, finally, another link to ads and posters.

The good points are that we have press section ready to gather all the important information for press and, for example, also a complete press kit and a couple of cool stories. However, on the other hand, the press kit is not translated to English yet, and the first press release is not ready either, beingMonday 19th June the deadline to send it .
One we have finished the material last, I hope that Vilanova and Generalitat press agencies help us to reach the mass media and get 500 people coming to GUADEC. Press agencies of our sponsors will help also to “spread the word” of GUADEC worlwide.
So far, one of our media partners, Gaceta Tecnológica, is going to publish an special edition about GUADEC in its next printed number, and it’s quite probable we could have several Spanish press’s journalists (ElPais, ElMundo…) phisically in GUADEC, living in the GNOME Village with hundreds of GNOME hackers.

Next week, I will be 50% dedicated to attend the media and help them to inform about GUADEC. In a couple of weeks, in Vilanova i la Geltrú, my mobile phone will be on 24 hours a day to ease press contacting our VIPs, knowing what’s going on and the like.
