I have been posting photographs taken at the NGS 2010 Conference in Salt Lake City. Unfortunately, I took relatively few photos, so I don't have much to show my faithful readers. Here are some "crowd shots" rather than "people shots":
1) Ancestry.com was a major presence at this conference, with at least three exhibit areas, two of them in the GenTech zone. The one in the general exhibit area looked like this as you entered the Exhibit Hall:
On the left is a small seating area with a large screen where Ancestry employees gave short presentations about Ancestry.com products.

There were always several Ancestry.com employees available to help researchers. Duff Wilson manned a Family Tree Maker 2010 table in one corner of the exhibit.
2) FamilySearch.org had perhaps the largest display area in the Exhibit Hall. They had many computers and many employees available to help researchers.

5) Footnote.com had a fairly large exhibit area that was always busy. Dick Eastman had a table in this display:
6) When you first walked into the Exhibit Hall, you couldn't miss the National Genealogical Society display - there were many society leaders and members to talk to and help visitors:
