Amazingly enough I go to tech conferences for tech, not for scantily clad women. If I wanted scantily clad women, I would be elsewhere, not at a tech conference.

Perhaps if people running a booth want attendees to be interested in their technology they should have people on the booth who know about their technology.

I was at a machine tool fair a month ago. A machine manufacturer had a beautiful girl showing the machine functions to interested people. She definitely had the tech knowledge.
But they put her in a bavarian dirndl wich in a marketing sense accentuated the wrong things.

So yes we definitly need such a policy on conferences.
