ABQ Comic Expo 2013

Sooner than it feels possible, but ABQ Comic Expo is coming! At the ABQ Convention Center June 21-23, Quelab has been assigned Booth #521 with the Star Wars Cosplayers behind us. We’ve got a 10×20 booth, which means we have twenty feet of aisle-space to show off the cool things which Quelab members have made, are making, and plan to make.

This is our opportunity to show off why Albuquerque has a hackerspace, and what a hackerspace can do for the ACE attendees. Now, this isn’t the Artemis booth, this is the “come see the cool stuff we do” and ‘drop in hackerspace’ booth. (Hopefully, this year, “cool things” doesn’t include the air-conditioner).

We need to be able to find the same amount of cool things to show off to the public, and we need LOTS more swag to both sell and give away. Learning from last year, we need plenty of Cheap Freebies (flyers, cards, etc) to give away, and not so much swag, unless it’s Maker Faire pins or soldering kits (with a free, on the spot class). We also need to have people sign up to man the booth, as well as setup on Friday Afternoon and teardown on Sunday Evening.

So who has a thing to show off?
And stay tuned for a big announcement regarding the Artemis project…
