I've always though foot massages would be a highly lucrative business at trade shows, particularly those as large and spread out as CES; however, early in my career an old show veteran gave me a tip that's served me well over the years - every night when I get back to my hotel room I fill up a trash can with the hottest water I can stand and sit on the bed and soak my feet for about 15 minutes each - makes all the difference in the world in how they feel when you get up the next morning to begin another all day trek on the show floor
