I just signed up for the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, January 7-10 and thought I should remind you about it too.
Since this blog is aimed at engineers, you may be wondering why I would mention a consumer show. So, here are my reasons for going -you can judge if they apply to you.
1. It is a lot of fun. There are miles of exhibits, lots of cool demonstrations, and some sessions like “Last Gadget Standing” to appeal to the geek in each of us.
In case that doesn’t justify getting out of the office:
2. It is informative. You can see what new and exciting products your competitors are working on and how close they are to production. It may even give you some ideas for your own work.
Still not enough?
3. CES Partner Sessions. There are 24 (count them) concurrent conferences and summits ranging from the “Cable Conference” to “Technology and Emerging Countries”. One of them may be important to your industry. I will be at the Digital Health Summit because I am working on a project related to that.
4. Las Vegas is a fun place with “interesting” places to spend your evenings.
Registration is just $100 till January 2.
See you there.
