Today I was at Solutions Linux, with the Debian France team. We weren't presenting something special, only showing the Debian Installer in babelbox, some Etch/Sid desktops (mostly Xfce, currently).
Lot of people came to see Etch, and asked about the release. There
were lots of questions about Xfce too (as the two pcs we had there,
besides the babelbox, were running it, my laptop using 4.4 and
MadCoder's one with the default Etch configuration). Lots of
visibility for Xfce and Debian, yeah.
You can see photos there.
