WOW - This is the earliest time yet for the start of free registration!

The 2013 Consumer Electronics Show will be held (again) in Las Vegas, NV at the LV Convention on January 8 -11, 2013.

The reasons I am sharing this information now is:

1) The free registration period is starting nearly a month sooner than any time before for CES.

2) Last year saw over 154,000 attendees at CES, with about 17 DBSTalkers onsite.

3) Last year there were a number of folks who were unable to get travel arrangements because they learned about CES too late.

4) Planning ahead for air and hotel travel arrangements starting as early as August is a good idea to assure availability and lower prices.

Notes: CES is not open to the public - some form of Consumer Electronics industry affiliation (and proof of Identification) is required onsite to obtain a badge/entry. A Business card and photo ID are sufficient in many cases.

The past 4 years, there has been an onsite DBSTalk member "meet and greet" dinner gathering for CES, and it is reasonable to assume they'll be one in January.

You are most welcome sir.

Obviously there is some time remaining to make plans (through July and likely through August)...but with the free registration coming this soon...I'm guessing that CES anticipates attendance to be more than last year. That will reduce hotel rooms and air options as we all know.

I'd better subscribe to remind me, so I can at least save the $100 reg fee :) And this year I'm bringing even bigger credentials, as an employee of Ingram Micro :D Might show up under "vendor" or similar this time...

Not quite...but last year it was opened the first week of August...so this is really early. Figured a heads up was handy.

Looks like both Apple and Android borrowed that preset from Adobe!

Unfortunately you must have some sort of tech industry affiliation (via business card usually) to get attendance. Last CES I went under the Government umbrella with my tour in the Navy's Cyber Defense group, and this CES I'll be going as an employee with my new company.

Correct.

It is not intended as a public event, rather, as an industry tradeshow.

July 9th is rapidly approaching for the free registration period.

For those folks interest - it looks like the website is active already today...

[I just completed the FREE early CES 2013 registration]

In the months ahead...there should be additional information for those attending - last year about 15 DBSTalkers enjoyed the Conference, and the annual traditional DBSTalker dinner was held.

Worst mistake I have made was passing up the chance to go in the early 90's. I was invited by a Pioneer rep I worked with. For that very reason (no affiliation) I knew I'd never get another opportunity. Sure enough I never have.
