Oh, we hear you, we're just not sure what to do about it ...

I don't much like this one, because it would skew the playing field in
favor of smaller companies.  If there were someone out there able to
field 100 events, but they could only advertise 5, how is that good for
either them or the potential attendees?

Conversely, I think your ultimate concern is with companies that can
really only field 5 events but advertise 100 to see what will happen :-(

Maybe we should try to discourage that sort of gamesmanship by instead
allowing/supporting ad campaigns on the order of "call us, we'll bring
our training to you", or "vote here for course X offered in city Y at
time Z".
