Badges are being mailed this week - or so I was told.

I happen to be in Vegas for a few days...and Draconis and I met the other night to talk about potential DBSTalker meet & greet dinner locations.

More will be announced once things get setteld on that front.

Right now it looks like we could have 15-20 DBSTalkers onsite at CES in January.

As of yesterday, I have heard from more than 10 people who have received their CES 2013 badges. If you haven't gotten yours, here are their instructions:

If you register before December 5, 2012, you will receive your badge by mail before the show. If you register after December 5, we will still mail your badge, but cannot guarantee delivery because of holiday mail delays. If you do not receive your badge by mail, please report to one of our registration areas when you get to the show. To receive a copy of your confirmation, please contact us at CESreg@CE.org.


Draconis and I are working together to coordinate the onsite DBSTalk "Meet & Greet" dinner. While we have used Maggiano's the past few years, and they did a fine job...we are exploring other locations/venues as well for this coming January. More info on that once it becomes available.

That hasn't worked in the past. :lol:

In reality...having a group of DBSTalkers onsite has always been both a really cool and informative experience. Meeting your fellow posters/members in person is great, and the "Meet & Greet" gathering is something everyone says they enjoy.

I anticipate having some nice "guests" join us this year if everything holds up according to plans.

UPDATE: A couple of folks have not gotten their badges though....they come in the regular mail in an envelope with the CES logo on top....so with typical mail delays...a few people might not get them until this coming week.

And they're paper, not plastic, the envelope is so non-descript it could be mistaken for junk mail.

Yes, they can be mistaken for Junk Mail as I separated my Mail after being gone on vacation in Sedona, Az. and I put it in the Junk Mail Pile and my wife opened it and told me there was a paper Badge in it so I put it in my CES 2013 Folder.

Good point. Unless you happen to be looking for it each day... ;););)

We perform the process here of opening all the mail first and then sorting into junk and legit. I'd hate to tear up a Publisher's Clearing House winner's check after all. :D

Excellent - good to know as well.

That lends hope to the few remaining reported folks who may not have yet gotten theirs. It appears that despite getting mine weeks ago...it's taking some added time to get them out to everyone.

It would also seem to indicate that perhaps there are alot of badges to sent - translating into alot of attendees.

It'll be good to see you there again in January.
