There's an e-commerce track, so that would be one idea.

And then there is the "vendor offerings" track, which is dedicated to showing 
products. There are extra brownie points (i.e., it's easier to get on the program) 
for vendors who demonstrate products that are standards-compliant and work 
together with products from other vendors. Proposals for the vendor track aren't 
due until October 1.
So I guess it depends on how much talking vs showing products you are intending 
on. If lots of the latter, I'd put it in the vendor offerings area.

Does that sound reasonable?
