Considering 140,000 people attended CES this year, it doesn’t always sound “special” saying that you went to CES. Well, to other people it might not be special but I was pretty pumped to go! When I come across others who were in attendance the first words out of my mouth are “Wasn’t it amazing!?”
Maybe because I’m a rookie at the show, but to me, the CES show somehow out-shown the rest of the Las Vegas Strip. Talk about pulling out the big guns. Every booth I came across was HUGE, decorated to the nines and Lady Gaga even showed up! One thing that really impressed me was that so many brands created a memorable booth and didn’t just focus on the product they were showing. Half the time I was in awe and examining their booths and displays rather than their product. Coming from our company that probably doesn’t surprise many people, but I noticed a few others doing the same thing! Take for instance the Motorola booth- I honestly think my mouth was wide open the whole time I was in it. They had a wall of lights that were made up of tiny flat LED lights, which enclosed the booth. That got me so excited to see what else they had. Just goes to show what an amazing booth, ahem or display, can do for a brand.
Take a look at some of the photos I snapped. Unfortunately I took them on my phone so some came out bad. I guess I should have done a little more research on phones with good cameras while I was there!
Booths and lines aside, it was very exciting to see the new technology coming out. I was like a kid in a candy store- what to choose, what to buy next! Seems that tablets are going to explode this year, 3D is not going away only getting better and by 2015 everyone will have a flying car. Kidding, that’s just wishful thinking.
