We do look at the voting popularity but I agree that this is not used as a major factor in our decision due to the "data noise".

Should we consider setting a rule for voting?
For example, people from the same company is not eligible to vote for the sessions which are "solely presented" by their company (i.e. All presenter from the same company). However, he/she is eligible to vote for that session if that session is a joint-presentation between different companies.

I have been arguing in favor of one that would completely eliminate what you're rightfully complaining about.
