Unless, that is, you want to end up like this guy— the poor soul who thought he'd been invited to sit in the audience during a roundtable discussion with President Obama, but who'd really been invited to participate in special roundtable discussion with President Obama.

The Obama administration sent an invitation in Utah to Hill Air Force Base We thought they wanted a representative from our company in the audience. Turns out, they wanted the rep for a special round table with the president. Due to this mix up we sent my friend instead of the CEO.
Luckily, he made it work — and even almost looks like he fits in with the presidential crowd.
