CMP Media's Interop 2007 Las Vegas attendee bag contains a water bottle, t-shirt, and a ton of marketing material.
Interop 2007 attendee bag
Compared to Microsoft's Tech Ed 2005 and Tech Ed 2006 bags, CMP Media's Interop 2007 bag disappoints. This lightweight shoulder bag, emblazoned with the Interop and F5 Networks logos, works fine for toting around the marketing slicks and swag attendees score on the expo floor. But, I wouldn't dare carry a laptop in it.
The bag has a small internal compartment that you can access from this zipper on the side.
I'll use this handy outside compartment to store the heaps of glossy 8 1/2" X 11" spec sheets and marketing slicks exhibitors hand out.
Marketing material, a water bottle, and a t-shirt
Opening the Interop 2007 bag I got my first glimpse of its contents.
Leed's Horizon Polycarb Sport Bottle
At first glance, I assumed this was a water bottle. But, it doesn't have a small pull top and seems to work more like an insulated beverage container. After a little digging, I discovered that it is actually a Horizon Polycarb Sport Bottle sold by Leed's--a provider of promotional products.
If you didn't get a chance to attend Interop but want one of these snazzy containers, they run $7.20 a piece in quantities of 1-47.
According the Leed's product description "Constructed of high impact resistance polycarbonate, this tough 18-oz. sport bottle resists stains, odors, and sub-freezing to boiling temperatures. The stainless steel lid and base add an aesthetic ruggedness rare in active drinkware. Lid attached with nylon strap. Rubberized skid-proof bottom."

Novell ZENworks CD-ROM
Novell placed two identical CD-ROMs in my bag. I didn't have a chance to install the software before publishing this gallery, but according to the outside cover the disc contains the following:
