The data of all attendee's is available to all exhibitors to purchase at a hefty sum. But you also need to bear in mind where your badge is getting scanned.
In San Francisco, many of the exhibitors hired in Staff (obviously based on looks) to just walk about their booth scanning passers by, the same goes for coffee/juice/beer bars, they always scan your badge first and boom, sponsor has some data.
I agree with you, I dont see the value in emailing folks (especially a, thanks for visiting our booth) when you've had no communication from them.
Due to the layout of VMworld this year I only made it to the Solutions Exchange once and that was during the welcome reception where it is too crazy to actually talk to anyone. I literally spent the entire conference at Moscone West.. I just never had a reason to be in the other buildings. In years past I would go to the Exchange numerous times, dropping by inbetween sessions and staying when I came across something interesting. This year, I was just never close enough to make it worth it...
The end result, though, is that every VMworld email and phone call I get is obvoiusly cold call fishing.. "Hi there.. We met at our booth at VMworld this year..."
Um.. Nope.. We didn't.. You probably just scanned me as I was trying to get to the beer table. But yeah, anyways, not interested in buying a SAN based on a cold call. Thanks.
