The 2013 free AWP giveaway (while supplies last):

In honor of our soon-to-be-launched mobile website (!!!), this year we are giving away simple stands for your tablet/phones to encourage you to read and visit KR from those devices.  The stands are made from oak, and were milled from a tree that fell during a summer storm in Worthington, Ohio.  Supplies are limited, so be sure to stop by booth 1105 early in the conference to gets yours!  (Supplies would be unlimited, but sanding takes a long time and oak weighs a lot in checked luggage.)

Be sure to visit our mobile site! Launching soon!

The stands will accommodate a wide range of mobile devices. But there are so many devices! And they are all different sizes! While the stands will accommodate many devices, they may not fit yours perfectly.
