We can definitely create several panels like this.  I know many of these people and others similar to their experience who want to speak.  I've brought several of them to the Park, only to have people facilitating the GA completely blow us off because they are clueless to who the people even are.  It has gotten so bad / disrespectful that I don't even ask people to come anymore.  We will help direct people to a set panel, otherwise we need to get GA  facilitators who understand economics.
