Conferences and trade shows.
What makes a booth at a trade show particularly compelling? Do schwag, trinkets, gewgaws, etc. do anything for you? What have been some of the more creative / innovative approaches you've seen to conference booths? [more inside] [more inside]

I work with a group of people that develop museum exhibits and I've spent a lot of time thinking about unusual interfaces and compelling non-traditional experiences. I've been deep in this for some time, but would be interested in the views of people not quite so close to the field. So, a few questions:
1.What and where are some of the most compelling museum experiences you've had and why, online or in real life (ideally using tech in a surprising or particularly effective way, but I'm interested in the core of any great museum experience)?
2.Given your druthers, what sort of interaction would you like to have with a museum that you're not getting?
3.What conferences or shows might I attend to be exposed to stuff of which I'm not already aware, in the US or internationally. (Obvious ones are the annual meetings of AAM
, Ars Electronica
4.What universities are doing compelling research and application in creating compelling interfaces and experiences that can work in a museum environment (such as the MIT Media Lab
or Fraunhofer Institut
5. What companies or design firms execute this sort of stuff like no other (such as Second Story Interactive

I've been dabbling in amateur photography for a year or two now, and I'm just beginning to work up the stones to try and arrange for an exhibit of my work. I'd like to approach a few local coffeehouses / cafes to display my work (for sale). How do I go about doing this? What are the usual conventions (i.e. commissions, pricing, etc.) Can anyone share their experiences?
