For the planning and implementation of Wikimania Esino Lario we are preparing a series of meetings. We need to store and provide all the information and references in one place so anyone can prepare it, contribute to it and do it quickly.
Book the space, check the equipment and connectivity, check the maximum number of people who can be accommodated.
Make it efficient
Clearly define what you want to achive, make sure you involve the right people to achieve it and tell these people why you need them and what they will be asked to do.
Prepare a poster in which you include all the necessary information (full date including the year, location, the aim of the meeting, and the contact information of a reference person), and a report (with at least a photo) in which you summarize what happened.
Authorization to upload photos of specific people.
Print the poster and the material (and make the distribution in Esino Lario and small towns)
In Esino Lario you can ask for help to Ester Maglia and Tecla Bertarini who will manage also the distribution. Print 10 copies of the poster.
Small towns. Print 12 copies of the poster (keep 3 for the venue; you will hang them the day of the event.
