CES booth gimmicks


At CES, booth owners will do almost anything to get your attention, from "booth babes" to all sorts of silly give-aways, to gimmicks such as the oxygen bar at the wall mounting solutions company Vantage Point. Attendess looked for a quick hit of energy but remained apathetic to the product pitch.


Meanwhile, at Showstoppers on Monday night, exhausted show-goers enjoyed a short massage. I'd listen to a sales pitch for anything after one of those.

By far the favorite attraction seemed be the free cappuccinos; afterall, if you haven't slept in 2 days, a pen inscribed with the company's name isn't going to get you very excited.


One company offered free international phone calls from a traditional English phone booth. I was too tired to think of anyone to call.
