Lobbyconners crash tech conferences to schmooze, cut deals
Lobbyconners crash tech conferences to schmooze, cut deals: "They simply loiter in the venue s lobby - without paying - in hopes of mingling with other entrepreneurs, collecting business cards and cutting deals. Who cares about hearing Microsoft s CEO opine on stage? Schmoozing in the hallways for free is far more valuable, many technology insiders say. The phenomenon has become so prevalent that it has been given a name: lobbycon."
