Sounds successful, thanks for running the booth.

Yes, that's the usual situation at Linux@work shows.

The main interest lays in the talks and booths are only a nice addon.

That indeed sounds very little.  I had expected some 100-150 visitors.

For you as well?  For business people attending the show, that's the
regular case, they pay for the conference and for food.  Oh, and food
needs to be good, becaus at least that part is remembered when somebody
asks them, so good food implies a good conference which can imply another
visit next year. :)
