Struggling with the lead retrieval device

It’s a widely adopted standard at US trade shows to use lead retrieval scanners. Our booth neighbor used one and it took often some time. We did not, because Sandro (our marketing VP) said, it’s cheaper to collect a business card. I agreed, but there have been a lot of visitors without business cards, perhaps calculating that there are those devices. If I would have known, how many business cards we totally collected (I was guessing less) + how much we missed, I would have taken it too. Lesson learned. 😉
