I can talk to Ask.

My only question is, what were the comments last year regarding 
employers being at the conference (good and bad)? I don't see any 
problem with it, but some might not like it for some reason.

I'd say as long as we don't muddy the waters between conference content 
and company tables or booths, we're OK. We want to avoid any cases where 
Company X has a table and is also giving a presentation about how cool 
their company is. They do this at other conferences and it really annoys me.
