I think you might be underestimating the eye-catching power of beauty. A person might attend such events for the tech, but from thirty feet away in a crowd of vendor booths, a beautiful woman not only can but does attract the initial attention. Whether it sells or not notwithstanding, it gets attention. And no one is threatening these women with death, they are accepting the job.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
