    Also, remember you need 2 Forms Of ID to get your CES Badge such as a Driver's License and a Business Card with your name on it.

    Yes, you definitely NEED your BUSINESS CARD. Which serves as proof (chuckle) that you work in the consumer electronics field. Or that you have a decent printer at home, or something. :D

    BTW, I hope everybody has a hotel lined up already. All CES-rate rooms are sold out, and the hotels are showing crazy prices otherwise. (Mirage $674/night, Riviera $499/night, for example) Terrible's, which usually begs for last-minute visitors, is sold out. The best decent room I could find this morning is Sam's Town, which is just do-able with its shuttle to the strip. Sure glad I booked my room early!

    I book my room every year in July at the Marriott Hotel which is 2 blocks from CES and this is one time you can't wait until the last minute to try and get a great deal as everything sells out because this is the Largest Convention in the USA.

    Odds are if folks don't have their badge, ID, hotel, and travel squared away by now...its not gonna happen for them. ;)

    While it might not surprise everyone... :D:lol:

    Several of us booked our travel back in August and registered like Rich said.

    No last-minute surprises that way. ;)

    Looking forward to seeing you there again.

    We're less than a week away from CES 2012.

    I'd encourage everyone who has confirmed for the DBSTalk "meet + greet" dinner next week to refresh their memory on the details in Post 235 here:

    http://www.dbstalk.com/showpost.php?p=2902744&postcount=235

    Several folks will be meeting onsite at CES in the various Halls from time to time. We have a list of phone numbers already.

    Note: There will be several onsite reports filed at DBSTalk, including photos (as in past years).

    Safe travels next week - and may everyone enjoy CES 2012!

    And on that note, I declare this thread closed, at the thread starter's request.
