MMA Expo Advice

I'm planning to attend the MMA expo in Toronto in May. There are no competitions, just a chance to cross train & check out other arts. (http://www.mixedmartialartsexpo.com for full info)

Here's the current list of instructors. Since I can't see them all, which ones are the "Don't Miss" people? (I don't want to find out after the event that I could have trained with "XXXXX" and didn't!)


Thanks!
