One important question certainly is: Who is going to invest
into the presentation. My company Intevation certainly has
the knowledge to show and support Free Software tablets,
likewise other companies and individuals have.
However even to do a one day workshop which of course should display a product
which is as good as it can, would be a significant investment.

Note that most sold tablets with Android are ARM architecture currently
and thus running Android. As far as I know there is no good Android-ARM
packaging for Plasma-Active so far.
So maybe demonstrating a non-Android or non-ARM systen could be easier
to show the maturity of the software.
As an office suite you can show Calligra.
For Email and Calenders you can try Kontact Touch.
