Operation Eliminate Booth Babes

The goal: To discourage companies which hire booth babes from continuing that practice, by using a combination of peer pressure and negative reinforcement.

The Tactics: Actually, this part is pretty simple. When the first person at a booth approaches you, treat him or her exactly the same way you would a sales or implementation engineer. Ask questions regarding the technology. Ask about planned life cycles of the software, on use counts, and other things. Treat them exactly as you would an equal.

If this person is a booth babe (or a clueless marketing droid), they will inevitably hand you off to the lead technical (or sales) person at the booth. Here comes the important part: Demand to know why they wasted your time with manning the booth with clueless people. Don’t discuss sales or tech with this person (which is what they will desperately want to do at this point). Ask why their company wastes everyone’s time and their investors’ money using people who provide no value. Tell them that you will not be doing business with them, regardless of their technology, because you believe that any company that needs to hide behind tricks, gimmicks, and sex appeal, can not offer you any value. Point out that a great number of their competitors don’t need to use flimflam to sell their wares. Then walk away.

Your doing this will probably not unsettle the person. But the second time it happens at the same show, they’ll take notice. And the third. And the fourth. It’s more effective the more times a company encounters it. The next show they go to, they’ll remember what happened, but sadly, they’ll probably do the exact same thing. But when they get it again, and again, show after show, they will eventually stop because they’ll see that we are not interested in their worthless ploys.
