And they have people willing to pay a lot of money both to attend and
to have booths. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but if it
wasn't for the financial support of all the corporate sponsors, the
anniversary summit simply wouldn't have happened.

Hopefully at some point there will be enough commercial interest
around PostgreSQL that such sponsorship won't be required, but I
don't think we're there yet.
