Doing trade shows.

Most of the engineers I know love to go to trade shows. It means a chance to slack off, drink beers and generally have fun. Once you move from engineering to business however, the game changes. Bigrtime business deals take place here, and here are a few tips for dealing with the transition... How to DO trade shows once you are in business.

1) don't drink AT all
2) don't gamble (in Vegas). I struggle with this one.
3) set up meetings beforehand!
4) prepare hard for the meetings and bring demos
5) go to as many parties as you can, but see 1 above

that's it, follow my microblog for live updates from CES 2010!
