I've been taking coreboot to LinuxTag since 2007 and haven't had too many issues; the organizers do a good job, but they're all volunteers.
Previous years Messe Berlin (the fairground company) has been sponsoring LinuxTag with exhibition halls and booth furniture.
This year it's a different location and Messe Berlin isn't involved at all. Everything is handled by the main organizers.
I think this change has great potential and can mean a much smoother ride for everyone involved. My impression of Messe Berlin over the years is that they're pretty bureacratic.
