Richard,

What happens at these meetings? I was discouraged from going to the one in my area (Silicon Valley) because it was just a big meeting of vendors pushing products, but I never verfied this.

Hi Joe,

The NoVA meetings, at least, are almost anti-vendor. One of the guys there told me they have been continuously rejecting a sponsor who wanted to talk abou t his product!

I think meeting quality varies widely though. NoVA is heavily federal due to the DC influence.
