The Five Types of Computex Booth Babes

Nothing Says Hot Like Babes Wearing Shiny Plastic

The use of booth babes (or show girls as they’re call in Asia) in a trade show is nothing new. After all, one of the best way to dress up a booth is by having it manned by a bunch of hot women. However, Computex uses booth babes for more than just decoration. Unlike other trade shows, where the girls just stand around and look good, the babes are Computex can be divided into five unique working groups.

The Eye Candies

The eye candy group is the booth babe group that we are all use to. They stand around their booths in shiny plastic clothing, next to the products the company wants to promote. Most of the time, these girls are passing out product spec sheets or bags. Sometime they’ll be asked to pose for pics while holding over sized markups of company products.

The Product Demo Babes

The demo group are generally the highest paid babes because they have to be more than just eye candy. They have to go on stage and do product demonstrations and presentations. I believe Jane May would qualify for this group. The demo babes are normally accompanied on stage by the normal booth babes, whose job would be to hand out prizes that they always give away at these events.

The Roaming Floor Babes

The third group of Computex show girls are the roaming floor babes. Unlike North American trade shows, where booth babes must stay at their booth, Computex allows the girls to roam around the convention center to get people to come to their booth. They walk the floor in groups carrying signs that reads “Welcome to visit us at booth XXX”. Often, these roaming girls are used to upstage a competing company’s product demo.

Roaming Demo Babes

These girls travel to different booths to do product demos for partnered companies. For example, the VIA girls above visit all the booths of the motherboard makers that use the VIA chipset to do their presentation and hand out prizes. Because companies like VIA, Intel, NVIDIA and AMD offers roaming booth babe services, some partnered companies won’t hire girls for their own booths.

The Dancing Booth Babe

The last group of booth babes are the dancing booth babes. These girls bust a move in order to stop show goers in their tracks. After they complete their dance, the demo babe takes over.

    2. Andy Dang says:

      i can see a contest coming up already…

      1. …it will be something like – write a post about this topic and link to this post with the anchor text “Computex”, and win a hot date with both of the dancing booth babes.

        1. And again the evil strikes! What kind of blogger would’nt want to date those girls? :b

        2. Hmmm…what if a woman wins and she doesn’t happen to swing that way? ๐Ÿ˜€

    3. James says:

      I don’t see that happening till about the time you get him to test that iBod thing.

    4. I would save that. The plastic might stick too much. I hate that squeaking sound. . . .

  2. Tom LeDree says:

    haha I love those dancing babes! I think John should show us a video of him dancing like that ๐Ÿ˜†

    1. Marc says:

      Now that would get some traffic. Toss that on here and it would go viral in minutes!

  3. Casey says:

    Nothing says it more like booth babes dancing to Britney Spears.

    1. Clearly, the woman with shorter hair dances better than the other one. The former does know how to shake what her momma gave her!

      1. Are you going to start an online dance off?

        :mrgreen:

    2. Marc says:

      Yeah, makes me want to buy AMD products… somehow… I guess…

  4. Alex says:

    Dancing babes? Funny ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Shaun says:

    Lol ๐Ÿ˜ฏ It must have been hard to not look at those babes when your wife was around ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. John Chow says:

      She took the pictures!

      1. PERFECT!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  6. kabalweg says:

    Those babes are hot. I wish I was there with you John. (^_^)

    1. Jack Book says:

      looks similar, but i don’t think they afford to pay her to be just a booth babe. but it’d be so nice if it was really her ๐Ÿ˜€

    2. John Chow says:

      No it’s not her but she was a very good demo babe.

    3. tofudds says:

      she looks like my microbiology teacher…

      1. I bet she inspired you to study really hard, didn’t she. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Jeff Kee says:

    Can you ship me one of those girls (preferrably one with a large rack) via Fedex?

    1. Joshua says:

      I’ll take two! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ By rack you mean server rack, right?

    2. wine_review says:

      Yeah, one of those huge server racks :mrgreen:

      1. Jack Book says:

        can i still join to the party? i’ll take 3 ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    3. ms danielle says:

      this is geeky and perverted at the same time ๐Ÿ˜‰

      jeff you should live inside a trade show. lol

  8. That wasn’t cool?

  9. Alex says:

    Does your wife care if you look at them?

    1. I guess “look but don’t touch” works for them, Alex. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  10. Wallace says:

    Wow,pretty girls,my choice is the Roaming Demo Babes! ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Michael says:

    What is the ROI on a “Booth Babe”?

    Michael

    1. Marc says:

      Now that’s a really good question. It’s all fun and games, but at the end of the day, the “babes” go home and all you’re left with is the leads/sales ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Bang on. You might get more eyes to your area but there has to be a strategy in place once their looking.

  12. Roaming Demo Babes are the best! ๐Ÿ˜‰ roaming floor is not that bad either! good marketing lol

  13. Wish the AMD processors move as fast as the babes did ๐Ÿ™„

  14. Andy Dang says:

    pretty girls mm mm mmm

  15. InvestMe says:

    wow! sexy girls on the road ๐Ÿ™‚

    john, you can choose which one of them. ๐Ÿ˜†

  16. Robert says:

    For next time, I suggest investing in a wide-angle lens. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. I think John uses it for special occasions — like spying on that girl (was that in Montreal?) with a tattoo on her lower back. That camera had a lot of zooming power alright.

  17. They seem less intimidating then North American booth girls.

  18. derek says:

    I was just at EMC World conference and there was one company that had a knockout booth babe and you can guess which booth had the largest crowd each and every day.

    It was pretty funny to see the crowd of geeky guys hanging around this booth just watching as she moved through the crowd scanning badges.

  19. Mr. Chow, I come back from a two month absence and what do I find? You reveling with booth babes.

    Indeed, some things never change.

    =^..^=

  20. Nomar says:

    Does your wife like it that you take pics of them??? ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™„

    1. He said earlier in the post that the wife actually took the pictures :b

  21. Dancing booth babes… just goes to show that in asia… no one can dance hip hop

    1. Joey says:

      No offense but you have no idea what you are talking about.

    2. Shypy says:

      Might be because they were sponsored by/running on AMD. Intel Inside, Idiot Outside. ๐Ÿ˜€

    3. That Nicole lady from the Pussycat Dolls is part Asian…so was the girl who won the Next Pussycat Doll contest. The dancing girls at the show could’ve used a little bit more practice though, sure.

    4. Mason says:

      huh?? they’re BOOTH babes. true hip hop dancers don’t really attend such events. why do you think they will work at one lol.

  22. GPTnews says:

    They should teach these girls to dance better.

  23. Wasn’t there any hot girls who didnt actually work? Who just attended like a regular.. ๐Ÿ˜€ That’s the fifth kind.

  24. I was waiting for the babes since Day One :mrgreen:

  25. Sofcore says:

    Out of curiousity…

    Booth babes aside, was your time at Computex productive?

    1. John Chow says:

      Yep! I met all the people I wanted to meet.

  26. That music was awful… I guess it had something to do with the recording!

    Yuck.
    Kenneth

  27. BTW, I can’t believe how some people manage to get 67 or 85 comments! I struggle to find enough to …

  28. Now I know why AMD is cool! ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. They need to add a 6th class of stripping booth babes. That would make people excited to go to one of these shows.

  30. Douglas Karr says:

    You’re trying to make me buy you more beer aren’t you? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  31. wow, these girls are all around, i bet John is having a great time checking them out

    1. Mason says:

      who wouldn’t? ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  32. rahul says:

    Jane May for demo babes ๐Ÿ˜ˆ when where ๐Ÿ™„

  33. The dancing babes actually scare me a little, so I’ll take the eye candies.

    I’ve never been to a trade show, but I’m getting tickets right now. They do mud wrestle, right?

  34. Mason says:

    haha reminds me of e3.. too bad they’re banned there.

  35. Richard Miller says:

    This is yet another example of the selling power of sex.
