Some engineers really don't like gimmicks at shows. they prefer the technical conference.

Fortunately, I don;t know any of those sorts of engineers -- I only know the fun and interesting ones LOL

I once had a contributor on DesignCon Community who wrote about how he dislikes the gimmicks and that's why he likes DesignCon. Solid, practical technical content without the gimmicks. IEEE-sponsored conferences are generally free of gimmicks. In fact, the same people would come if there were no exhibits at all. They come for the conference.

Uhm, well I see if I'd actually looked at the article that Max did already post some great images of the booth, so let me share one of the refreshments on offer there!

Now, here's a trivia question: What do you call the delightful confection that this engineering is stuffing his face in?

How about "Beard Misery Waiting To Happen"?

Or "An upcoming visit to the dentist is in this guy's future."

 

Seriously (if you can be serious, Max), what do you call that fluffy stuff? This is an important survey I am doing.

We used to call it "Cotton Candy" in england -- I think I've also heard the term "spun sugar"
