One thing that works against this, though, is crowding ... by having two 
booths, one would hope that things wouldn't *look* crowded ... I tend to 
avoid the crowded booths at a show, and come back later when there are 
hopefully less ppl, so that I can talk to someone, instead of listening to 
someone else talk ...
