I apparently didn't hit reply all last night. It's a yes from me... I'd personally be for John Lemasny or Mairin Duffy joining us if possible. People who know it and like educating.

Hi Guys,

I was wondering if would want to offer a travel subsidy to help get a few people to our booth at SCALE 11x? We have a booth allocation, and 10 conference passes that go with it. At the moment I have just two bodies committed (myself, and a talented assistant in my now college student daughter), so more can be helpful. I live near enough so I just drive on in.

Rooms at the hotel are listed for $112 a night, and a quick spot-check on flights from the East Coast are in the $300-$400 range. Those might be a good benchmark for the upper range on a normal expectation of how far SCALE attendees might come. Sometimes even partial assistance can help get people there who otherwise might be on the fence.

As a follow-up item, might we want to try coordinating for any other shows during the year? I know we'd mentioned a few somewhere just about a year ago, so this seems like a good time to consider/plan.
