      • We had an 8’ x 4’ booth with two pedestals which had 2 laptops with monitors running Aperi demos, one with 0.4 and one with 0.2. We could not get SAN Simulator running, but had the Camtasia file. There was lots of interest in the simulator. We could have used one laptop dedicated to that with a demo.
      • We had a badge scanner, about 60 people were scanned. The scanner stopped working the second day, so we collected cards when we could.
      • The expo ran two hours on Tuesday during lunch, three hours that evening, and two more hours on Wednesday
      • There was heavy traffic at the booth at all times. We had 2-3 Aperi people working the booth at all times: Allen Marin, Russ Warren, Tom Guinane (IBM), Javier Lozano (YottaYotta), John Dobyns (Emulex), and John Tyrrell (NetApp). Also, Steve Gardner (LSI) and Hiroshi Yoshida (Fujitsu) dropped by the booth at times to talk to folks.
      • When not ‘on duty’ Aperi members were visiting the other booths talking to other companies about an Aperi relationship.
