Given we only just managed a presence at Manchester MakeFest, we should see what we need to do to make it less stressful.

Might be helped if we get an events team as part of #244...

Here's how I see it:

  • Create an issue for applying to the event.
  • Apply the Meetup: Events Label.
  • Create a Milestone if many tasks are required.
  • Assign/choose/volunteer a champion to co-ordinate the event for DoES (it helps if they commit to going) — assign that person(s) to the event issue.

Using the main event issue as a progress tracker, the coördinator should:

  • Apply for the event as applicable (ideally from a DoES email, but from the event champion if suitable).
  • Recruit attendees.
  • Collate the exhibition.
  • Recruit/organise transport (as appropriate).
  • Help attendees find hotels (if appropriate).
  • Create a packlist.
  • Reply to any H&S and risk assessment requirements.
  • Liaise with the event organisers regarding any drop-off and pick-up requirements.
  • Go to the event.
  • Come back
  • Unpack
  • Report any necessary information and close any issues for the event.

I have not. My assumption was that, since we've attended quite a few events since this issue was raised, the people that were running DoES' presence had them internalised.

Probably should do that, to be fair.
