Unfortunately, the ones who SHOULD go to such a presentation would be at
another presentation, plowing through a crowd of people to get a handout
so they can leave early and collect another handout in another
presentation. Or else they'd be at the vendors' exhibits sweeping all
the freebies into their tote bags without even acknowledging the
personnel at the booth.
