The concept of “booth babes” has been around since 1967, when the first Consumer Electronics Show was held in New York City. Back then, they were known as “CES Guides,” a title that has been replaced with a less discerning one, “booth babes.” Since then, the marketing ploy has drifted into other technology trade shows and events, such as RSA.

We are honored to be mentioned alongside some of Maryland’s most successful cybersecurity companies like Sourcefire (who was acquired by Cisco for $2.7 billion just a few days ago), Tenable and Lockheed Martin.
