We still need help! This means that we still need some guerrillas who can help us out at the booth for some of the days (we  have only one helper, Phillip! he well be there the whole day, each day presenting Blender (all Credits for now go to Philip :) woot!!!)).

We also are asking for donations to help with the cost for hotels, food, etc for the helpers. The Blender Foundation is limited to it's contributions so any additional financial assistance is greatly appreciated.

The PayPal account for donations is blender-cebit [ at  symbol here ] We also have 500 guest tickets so at the least everyone who helps out or donates will get a free entrance.

Thanks in advance :) if you need more info, please let us know.

  1. cebit will those presenters from wdr computerclub be there too :) used to always watch that show before wdr was kicked off the cable for some commercial shit.

  2. Hi,

    i could imagine helping out at the booth. Not every day, but at least the last two days possibly. I live in Hannover and would go to the Cebit either way. Please contact me and tell me, what you need.



  3. You know, this sounds like fun, and I checked the distance, it's about 5 hours driving. If I went, I'd like to go see the scribus booth as well... (how I love the idea of their open source program, and how I hate the fact it spits out these extremely large pdf files, I know the reason behind this is so their pdf's look identically when handled by virtually every print system, but still)

    from 3-8 march, where do you guys stay? what do you estimate staying there would cost? I might have a few things which could be cool to show (latest rigs and testanimations and the likes, if they are good enough)
    And I wouldn't mind the drive, I'd like to help at the booth if needed, but where do you guys intend to stay, eat, what do you expect it to cost etc? (it's a full friggin week after all)
