Hi US folks!
We SmoothWall types have recently opened an office in your wonderful country (Charlotte, NC), and have been doing the rounds of education expos from coast to coast, and a few places in between.
One thing we have found is that not all are suited to "IT tech" people, and a lot of them are showing interactive smartboards (or insert latest buzzword here) and so forth, and as such are attracting teachers rather than techs.
If you can let me know any expos or gatherings that you attend, which we may be interested in exhibiting at, i'd be most grateful, and if we end up going we will surely take you out for a beer when we get there to say thanks

I think the best one around is the NECC that is in D.C. this year. I believe I met someone from your company in San Antonio last year. I would recommend going to the WV West Virginia State Technology Conference
It is a small conference however pretty well attended by the state due to its central location. We were one of the first few to go to a Wide Area Network and I think many in the state are now moving. The firest thing I tell everyone of them is to make sure they have a filtering appliance as well as a packetshaper.
You guys may need to talk to me sometime. We are using a Sonicwall but the price is begining to get at us now on the upgrades.

Thanks! We will be attending NECC for the 3rd time this year.
If you'd like to speak to one of our US-based folk, or arrange a free evaluation do give them a call: 1 800 959 3760 or drop me an email and I will make sure your details get to the right people
The thing about tradeshows, expos, and what not, I realize not a lot of goers are IT people. A lot of the attendees happen to be people who thoroughly love and enjoy technology, but are working else where, or that they don't have that decision making power.
Lostsoul: we find that, yes.. but those folk can be good to talk to in any case. Come and visit us at NECC in Washington anyway if you're going
