It’s that time again–taking appointments for CES 2013

Yup, It’s THAT TIME again.

I’m currently booking appointments for #CES2013, more formally known as 2013 International CES, running from January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas.

You’ll find me writing for HD Voice News (www.hdvoicenews.com), as well as contributing to Green Data Center News and TMCnet.com.

This means I’m taking briefings among the following topics: HD Voice (both mobile and broadband, smartphones), tablets, laptops/PCs, energy and power solutions, and broadband satellite.

My current schedule looks like this–

January 6 (Sunday)

CES Unveiled, Sunday, January 6, 4-7 p.m.
Mandalay Bay Level 3, South Seas Ballroom C

January 7 (Monday)

Morning – CES Press Day at Mandalay Bay


At 5-6 p.m, moderating “Richer Mobile Communication through Broadband” panel at the Broadband Unlimited conference track, Las Vegas Convention Center

Digital Experience, 7-10 p.m.  MGM Hotel

January 8 (Tuesday)

Morning – Suite visits at Las Vegas Hotel (LVH)

Afternoon – CES show floor, Las Vegas Convention Center

ShowStoppers @ CES 2013
Wynn Hotel, Lafite Ballroom, 6-10 p.m.

January 9 (Wednesday)

CES show floor at Las Vegas Convention Center

What typically works to set up a meeting–

A stop at a tabletop display at CES Unveiled, Digital Experience and/or ShowStoppers. I have a fond spot in my heart for ShowStoppers since they’ve been a class act over the years.

If you’ve got a suite at the LVH, I can try to stop by on Tuesday morning through noon, but I’m already starting to loath navigating the labyrinth of floors, rooms, and overloaded elevators.

Meeting on the show floor, provided I’m meeting with a subject matter expert, not getting the generic suck booth tour (Yes, that’s *YOU* Samsung, about 3 years running).


What doesn’t work–

Meeting off-site more than a block from the Las Vegas Convention Center during show hours.  Seriously, travel time from anywhere to LVCC is 30-45 minutes one way during CES, so unless it’s a REALLLY good breakfast meeting with Stevie Nicks providing a live performance as I eat, it’s not going to fly.
