Each year the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the official tradeshow of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), takes over Las Vegas in early January. For attendees at this year’s show, which runs January 6â€“9, there will be an official CES badge for checking in at five of CES’s ten venues.
The first 2,000 attendees to show their CES badge (of the foursquare variety) at the Experience CEA booth in the lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center will get a “cool prize.” Additionally, two badge-holders will win a “House Full of Music” courtesy of the CEA, foursquare and Sonos.
CES is the electronics industry’s major show of the year. Hundreds of new products are trotted out, ranging from computers and TVs to home appliances. It occupies space at the LVCC, the Las Vegas Hilton and the Venetian.
I expect this is only one of a few badges that CES attendees will be able to unlock. Last year’s show featured four exclusive badges â€” three from Intel and the official show badge. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
