CES- I Am Sorry I Missed It

The CES show (Consumer Electronics Show) just wrapped up in Las Vegas. As someone who loves gadgets this is the kind of show that really holds my attention. All those toys just waiting for someone like me to come and check them out.

Here is some information from their website that will provide you with a better understanding of what it is:


The first CES took place in New York City in June of 1967 with 200 exhibitors and 17,500 attendees. Since then, CES has grown more than eleven-fold. Nearly 2,700 exhibitors, filling 1.6 million net square feet of exhibit space, showcased their latest products and services to more than 140,000 attendees at the 2006 International CES.

    I used to (1997-1998) work for a sales rep firm, and part of my job was all the behind-the-scenes work getting the guys (they were all guys) ready for CES. When I started there, the company resume they took to CES was a couple sheets of paper in a folder. By the time I left, they had a PowerPoint presentation and a spiffy folder with hard copies of each of the lines the represented, photos, and links to their brand new website. It was a ton of work and I was always a little sad that after spending weeks working so hard, I didn’t get to go, too! I know… I’m such a geek. 😉
