borrowing a red hat summit idea for fudcon [May. 1st, 2011|05:20 pm]

I'm up in Boston for some Red Hat meetings, and I'm staying in the same hotel that is being used for the Red Hat Summit.

When I checked in and indicated I was with the Red Hat group -- which is for all Summit attendees and Red Hat employees -- I was given a room key on a customized key card with Red Hat artwork, messaging, and the Summit logo.

The name of the company that made the cards is printed on the back, so we can do some research into what it would take. But if the cost isn't prohibitive, I think this would be a cool thing to do at a future FUDCon, since it combines something that people need to have anyway with (if the artwork is cool) a souvenier.

Details on hotel key cards

Hi Max,

The key cards cost about $2,500 to brand with Red Hat for all of the conference hotels. The cost would go down if it was just for one hotel. Let me know if you have any questions about it - swhite@redhat.com

Great idea...

...especially if paired with the booklets as we did in Tempe.
