I don't know and couldn't see it on their site. I have sent a short 
message. Would the OpenCD be appropriate, with the OSI logo emblazoned 
on everything?

Researching new trends: this could be planned and structured data 
collection if we have some ideas about the trends that we are 
interested in; or it could be data gathering on some general topic in 
the hope that we can identify some emerging trend and verify it later.
Trying to find deals: look for other people who are at the fair and 
can give us things we want, maybe in exchange for something we have.
I'm not sure that they require more work at the event, but they do 
need a bit more thought and planning beforehand, to avoid stumbling 
into wasted effort.
I don't think we have enough resources for "all of the above" (but I'd 
be happy to find that I'm wrong: for example, if we have over 30 
person-days of time on offer, that should cover it), so we need to 
prioritise them. If we can't do that on-list, AFFS should hold a real 
or virtual meeting of interested people.
