Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit 2006-The Vendor Showcase

in ,

Most conferences these days have a vendor exhibition. This one is no different. Many of the vendors offer give-aways, usually pens, mice, sometimes golf balls, USB hubs etc. This year a popular hook was a draw for an iPod.

One vendor was handing out loot bags full of goodies. I grabbed one and retreated to a quiet place, only to find it was full of educational material. How disappointing.

The game is you give them a business card and they give you a gift. The downside is that for the month following you get calls from all sorts of sales people. No problem; this year I went with a stack of my boss’s business cards. I just hope he doesn’t delegate ๐Ÿ™ I’ll give him the loot bag.
