Yes, but it's tricky when you factor in sources, DACs, amps, and headphones. Even if say vendor X will be demoing all their products, they may be using them with different gear. It's unlikely they will have exactly the same gear as another member. Then it's also unlikely that they will let you take their gear to another table to try out a different combo. Right?
I am not saying we shouldn't worry about duplicate gear, but just because Sennheiser will be there doesn't mean no one should bother bringing any HD800's, etc.
