Well yes and no. I mean you can attract attention in all manner of ways.

For instance Little Al has/had a habit (though he says he doesn’t do this any more) of standing on tables and getting his cock out. That’s attention attracting but I doubt it would sell much construction equipment.

Don't think he stood on a table, he just slammed "it" down on the table...James has the photograph.

On a number of occasions I have employed promo staff at exhibitions.

Generally it’s to help hand out promo material (eg leaflets) and encourage visitors to come on to our stand. Usually we were promoting information (rather than selling a product), but we had to try to make it interesting, entertaining and/or relevant.

As a Government Dept, we would never have considered skimpy costumes as appropriate. We were looking for promo staff with personality, who could smile and be engaging all day (that’s not as easy as it sounds, as these are long days standing, meeting strangers). Some just had a knack for it.

Ideally we’d find people who genuinely had an interest in promoting our messages (eg food safety or environmental issues), or at least could fake it well! We did sometimes have funny costumes made (eg a cupcake) for staff to wear. Some loved wearing them, and we’d say in advance if it was a requirement.

We’d expect them to familiarise themselves with the messages of our stand so that they could talk about them to some degree, but not to be experts as we would prefer to handle the more detailed questions ourselves.

We didn’t specify female staff, but inevitably nearly all tended to be as they dominate the market. But we did employ a guy occasionally.

After a few days, many would tell us that we were so much nicer to work for than many commercial clients. They enjoyed the work because they were treated as temporary staff (rather than ‘decoration’), were actually allowed to engage with the visitors to a certain extent and they found their day more rewarding.

Several worked with us year after year at regular events, such as the Ideal Home Show.

These companies don’t need to stop employing promo staff completely. Employ them for their ability to engage passers-by with their personality and some product knowledge.

Surely a contractor ultimately buys roof tiles because he/she likes the quality of them and the price they can get them for? Showgirls are irrelevant to that purchase.

Because that doesn't work when it comes to selling stuff, which is also people's livelihood.

Now you've fixed Britain by flinging these show girls onto the dole, because their only crime was to be born attractive, then you are free to expand your operation and get your sad arse out to Saudi where the women really need your support.

If you book the flight I will make the placard.

TBH if I'd been on a roof all day today with this rain, cold and wind I reckon I'd want a strong brandy now rather than be looking at models.

A "strong brandy"...See this is what I am talking about on here

What happened with a light and bitter and a chaser?

It's not any of your business and it's not illegal either. You probably never heard of the show until today and now you are fighting a cause. Until recently walkon girls, pit girls and show girls never concerned you, it's just the very latest bandwagon you are jumping on in your spoilt, 1st world problem, sheltered SJW life. It is staggering that you have zero sympathy for the people you have helped put out of work, congratulations.

One day, if you actually cared, you might grow some balls and head out to a place in the World which has genuine need of help, and you'll actually do something constructive, but I have grave doubts because it's far easier to be a whiney little turd whining about shite like this, complaining about perceived inequality from behind your keyboard with zero conception of the real world around you.

Because mostly men go to these events and are not averse to scantily clad girls Its human nature for there to be attraction between males and females and vice versa.
