[Yapc-na-organizers] Vendors area at YAPC::NA

I'm not aware of any precedent with vendor tables. If they seem truly 
determined, how about offering them the same deal as the job fair folks 
and putting them in the same place? Seems this would be the easiest way. 
You'd just want to make it clear to the vendor that this was 
experimental so they don't have unrealistic expectations--we're not 
Gartner. :)
