We will have our team and a large booth at the SharePoint Conference next week in Las Vegas. We've designed the booth this year with a mini-theater area (50" plasma, sound system, chairs, etc.) so that our experts can conduct short sessions on topics that we feel we have a special perspective on.
We plan for these sessions to be short (approximately 15 minutes) and on a very specific topic. So, if you are in the exhibit hall and want to take a break from swag hunting for a few minutes and see a quick presentation delivered by an expert on the topic, we invite you to stop by. Like I said, this is a "mini" theater, so don't expect a big area that will accommodate hundreds. We'll have a half-dozen seats available and then standing room for another 10 - 12 people.
You should be able to easily find us as we will be right next to the Microsoft Pavilion where Microsoft will have lots of individual stands demonstrating various features in SharePoint 2010.
Here is the schedule we are planning for right now:

In addition to these sessions, we will always be available (when the exhibit hall is open - which, unlike previous years, is most of the time) to talk and do one-on-one demos.
Finally, we will be giving away one of the new 5th Generation Ipod Nanos (the new one that comes with an integrated video camera) each day. All you have to do to get in on the drawing is come by the booth and let us scan your badge to enter you.
If you are attending, make sure to stop by and say hello! Looking forward to seeing everyone at the conference!
