Correction from Oliver Zendel from the Unix-AG Kaiserslautern:
IBM _had_ a 28 m^2 booth at the Linuxtag.
Actually now I seem to remember their presence too ;-)
Probably I forgot about their booth because IMHO, like most of the big names,
their presentation wasn't particularly impressive. The difference between
the Debian booth and the commercial big names mainly consisted of a lack of
ties and professionally printed material. They definitly didn't shine wrt
interesting Linux demos.
When I stated that Linuxtag wasn't that big I compared it to the recent
US Linux events. Probably Europe needs some more time to catch up
popularitywise on the Linux train ;-)

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows,
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
