“International CES is where products are launched and excitement soars.” That’s the first line of the postcard from CES that I received in the mail, letting me know that free registration ends August 31st. (That’s in one week!)
Consumer Electronic Shower, or CES for short, occurs the second week of January every year in Las Vegas. It’s an exhibition of the latest and best consumer gadgets and technology. You’ll find just about everything here, from tiny helicopters remotely controlled by iPhones to the latest in 3D television and much more.
The 2013 CES will be again taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada with the dates this year being from Tuesday, January 8th to Friday, January 11th.
Here are some highlights:
- 20 TechZones including the expanded crowd-favorite Eureka Park and newly located International Gateway; all at The Venetian
- All new keynote addresses by Mr. Kazuhiro Tsuga, president of Panasonic Corporation and Dr. Nam-Sung Woo, President, Device Solution Business, Samsung.
- More meetings, more connections and more business than ever before.
How to Register for Free:
Until August 31st, registration is FREE with the registration code “LC1”. You can just go straight to CESweb.org and register using this special priority code. Registration after August 31st will be $100 per person and then $200 at-the-door. So even if you aren’t sure you’re going to be able to make it, you should register now since it’s completely free. Step by step intructions:
- Go to the CES 2013 Registration Page here
- Click “For Attendees” (unless you qualify for one of the other ones)
- Under New Registration, click “Begin”
- Walk yourself through the next few pages until you see the order review page to reviewing your information (don’t worry, it’s free)
- On the order review page, when you are prompted to enter the Priority Code for registration, use code “LC1” (again, the total cost should be $0.00)
- Hit submit and you should receive a confirmation that you are registered! See you in Las Vegas!
Flights / Accommodations:
There are always great deals for flights to Las Vegas, especially around the time CES rolls around. Although none of the current active promotions are for January, I’m pretty confident we’ll be seeing some great deals roll around later. My opinion is to hold off on booking flights for another couple of months until the airlines release some of the promotions for that time period. As for hotels, that’s completely up to you. The Venetian and the hotels surrounding the CES area often get booked fast, but if you’re an elite member for any of the casinos, you should be able to score yourself good rooms. I’ll keep an eye out for both the flights and hotel deals and post some as the date gets closer.
Hope to see you all in Las Vegas in January!
