Why are booth babes still a thing at (some) Tech events?
Cate Lawrence

Being in the events industry I do see a few of the events I attend / work where vendors will have female booth babes. More recently though (which I didn’t notice until a show mgmt person told me and then it made sense), vendors were hiring male booth babes — for the same reason. The conference attendees were primarily women. So it seems its not only be men who are drawn by modelesque girls in skimpy attire, but women who are drawn by tall modelesque guys in suits or showing off their guns as well.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
