As far as I can tell, Convenos wins the competition as the first vendor to play off the business travel inconveniences today. They just put out a press release with a sub-head of "Business Travelers Are Encouraged to Make Meetings Predictable During Unpredictable Air Travel Circumstances." The release references today's increase in security requirements for fliers.
Lest you think I'm berating them for cynically capitalizing on terrorism activities... Not true. This is quick reactive marketing in response to current events and a subject that is obviously on the minds of their target market. Heck, I'm doing the same thing just by posting these blog entries (as are hundreds of other bloggers around the world today). It's not disrespectful, as the terrorists seem to have been foiled and the only tragedy in this particular case has been inconveniences and time delays. And the realities of the situation are obvious.
Oh, and by the way, WebEx reacted as expected on the news today. The stock was up $1.04, or 3.24 percent. Convenos is not publicly traded, so no direct financial news from them.
