|I'm one of those people who spends a lot of time at trade shows asking, "Where did you get that?"|
Not anymore. This week, the hottest Comdex ticket netted the holder a ride on the Altavista blimp, and I had two.
Experience the blimp!
I'd like to think that it was my superior inside connections that landed me a ride on the airship AltaVista, but the truth is that these days the best way to rise above the noise at Comdex is to fly over it. Seems that running the lighter-than-air rides all week not only craned a lot of necks around the Convention Center, but also cost a lot less than putting on a Comdex dog-and-pony show.
If it does, it's worth every penny. Not only did AltaVista get the attention of people who might never venture near their corner of the show floor, but it made me a very happy woman. For just one Comdex, I could smile cryptically and say, "I think they just ran out."
