Same here.

The problem was we didn't get new faces who were interested to get
started. Otherwise, it went well. My observation is that big events
are fine for meeting old friends and get ongoing works done. But these
are not very suitable for getting new contributors q(plenty of choices
for them?) or starting a new work.

As long as I am in Kolkata, I can arrange things in (preferably) a
couple of days notice.
There is not much you could do as the booth was really a surprise. :)
