SWAG saturation? A kinder gentler day has dawned
Tuesday, June 13: I had the chance to engage in some really interesting conversations with many IT heroes today... Gone is the frantic mob that during the expo hall break yesterday raided and cleaned out booths of anything and everything that wasn't nailed down. So wading through the much less crowded and endless landscape of posters, CDs, DVDs, bags, hats, shirts, lights, key chains, can cozy's, gadgets, and all things that fly, blink, whistle or are sticky, furry and squishy to choose a single best for the day is a daunting task... that said SWAG grabber tip #3: if it makes you laugh keep it. One exhibitor more than any other has embraced this mantra. AvePoint, inc. makers of SharePoint item-level backup, recovery & archiving solutions. If you are brave enough to venture deep to the back corner of the hall in booths 250/252, AvePoint has Got You Covered with their "Caught with your pants down?" boxer shorts. I have to give an honorable mention shout in this category to Sherpa Software in Booth 731 for their chic propeller beanie.
