I’m trying to keep the number of vendor meetings I do to a minimum at RSA this year. I’ve filled up my schedule at previous events and quite frankly it’s more trouble than it’s worth for me. I’m planning on scheduling just two or at most three meetings each day and spending the rest of my time in sessions or wandering the expo floor to see what’s out there. Rich and I will be doing a daily wrap-up from the show room floor, hopefully fifteen minutes or less. Even limiting the number of scheduled meetings, I think I’m going to end up totally exhausted by Friday morning.
Most of the bigger vendors have more than enough media coverage already and I probably can’t add all that much that would be new to it. Many of the smaller vendors have interesting ideas, but I haven’t heard of too many I really want to set aside time for. What I want to know is who I should talk to if I only had one more time slot open for the entire event? If you’re a vendor (or PR for a vendor) this question isn’t aimed at you. I want to know who my readers would be interested in hearing from. With the recent issues concerning full disk encryption, I’m tempted to talk to one of the FDE vendors.
Who would you talk to if you only had thirty minutes to spare at RSA?
