This is definitely a failure case if this presentation actually happens.

If I do make a connection with them, I'll be looking for them to send an
engineer and not a sales person. I think I would not want to do a shoot
out with competitors, that seems like it would head right into sales
pitch territory and out of interesting technical discussion.

The company agreed to put on a technical presentation, not a sales pitch. They agreed to take specific technical  questions. What they delivered was merely a mind numbing tech-free sales pitch. and so I do not trust that company at all for anything.  And I do not look forward to having any other company desecrate a kwlug meeting. The experience was horrible last time.
