Logistics has to do with the movement of equipment.

Art Show BoardsEdit

The Art Show usually uses the Eastercon Art Show display boards, which are large sheets of pegboard/hardboard supported on frames of metal tubing and with clip on lighting systems. These are very heavy and awkward to move and require a large van or small truck to move them. Someone volunteers to look after them between Eastercons (and occasionally some or all are loaned to other conventions) so part of Logistics job is finding who has them and then transporting them to the convention, and making sure they are returned or delivered to the next lucky person who will be storing them.

Ops EquipmentEdit

Ops usually brings a few boxes of stationery and other supplies, plus computers, printers, laminators and other essential material. These need to be moved to and from the convention

Registration Equipment and PublicationsEdit

The ReadMe, Programme/Souvenir Book, other items for con packs, badges, lanyards, computers, printers, laminators or badge machines etc. have to be collected and taken to the convention, and that which is not distributed must be returned afterwards

Tech EquipmentEdit

Usually the majority of the tech equipment is hired and delivered directly to the hotel/site. But some may be borrowed from fans and need to be collected, taken to the convention and returned afterwards.


Depending on the site, there may be a necessity to bring along extra soft furnishings and other furniture.

Other StuffEdit

Anything from Chaos Costuming's sewing machines and tailor's dummies, to an exhibition of early convention t-shirts, or even a supply of real ale for the bar ...
