You have an opportunity right now - sign up.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Based on early "feedback" through several communication channels...

It appears that CES 2013 will have strong attendance numbers. This past CES ended up with over 150,000 attendees.

That being considered, and the fact that registration is starting a month early...it would be advised that at least hotel travel arrangements be explored early as well. This past CES saw hotel reservation availability highly limited for the final month before the Show. Just a thought.

Looks like we'll have a nice-size onsite DBSTalk group again this coming January.

Free registration is in full swing right now as listed in the first post.

Just a quick update.

CES registrations appear to be at least at last year's record levels for this coming January (so I was told by the media folks).

Making plans early for travel, hotel, etc. is likely a good idea.

Also, based on various communications to date, it looks like we will have a nice-size group from DBSTalk attending.

Another quick update.

I happened to speak to someone in the media relations group, and they indicated the early registrations were up more than 8% from last year. That would seem to point to some pretty solid attendance this coming January for CES.

Also, hotels are getting booked early as well - so recommend getting at least that part of your travel reserved early.

Finally - I have a total of 18 DBSTalk member responses via PM indicating their intend to be at CES...more could still be added...so assuming most make it...we could have a very large group this time around.

That is all....for now.

Can we get an open poll to see who will be there next year?

Sure, but it may be too early to get a meaningful count, and you can't undo a "vote", unless you mean a poll like this:

Yes, I will be there!

Look forward to seeing the regulars as well as some new attendees.... (It'll be only my third, so it's not as if I am a looooong time guy there.)
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

I've heard form 16 people so far....including knowing you guys will be there.

We'll likely end up with 18-20. I also know we'll see 2 "very familiar names" from DBSTalk there.

For those DBSTalkers planning to attend and flying to Las Vegas...

Several of the airlines have been running lower fare deals of late, and likely will be doing so for the next few weeks. The route a few of us are flying just dropped $180 this weekend, for example.

Each airline has deals available on different days of the week...so setting up an alert on Hotwire or other site for the CES dates helps.

Some more info from CES itself:

1) The marketing/media folks told me that the badges (for registered attendees) will be sent out starting early to mid-September.

2) Tuesday (1/8/13), Wednesday (1/9/13), and Thursday (1/10/13) are forecast to see the largest attendance at CES 2013, with Friday being the final day which ends an hour earlier.

3) We'll be starting the planning for the onsite DBSTalk dinner gathering (as done the past 4 years) sometime over the next month. More info once that becomes available later.

4) At last count (based on PM's I've received...it appears the onsite DBSTalk member attendance could reach 18 this coming CES (for the first time).

5) It may seem a long way off...but CES starts in 148 days from today. Watch the time fly until then. ;)

I am registered, but I'm not sure how many days I can stay. I should definitely be there for one day, but I hope it's two or three. If I can only go for one day, it will need to be whichever day the DBSTalk dinner is planned. :D
