    I will be arriving around mid-night Tuesday January 7th staying down-town as usual till Sunday January 13th. I will be camped out playing video poker at bars every evening at Main Street Station and The California; only to be interrupted for a few sessions of Blackjack at the Golden Gate.

    If you hear a drunk Texan hollering "Remember the Alamo!" when something good hits.... It's me!

    I know a few of us will be there.... PM or respond to this thread and I'll be more than happy to meet with you for a drink or three... or four... or ???? (down-town anyway).

    CES sent me my badge, but my wife who was going with me, got a new job as an R.N. I work in the industry, but for next year, I want to get her in also. Have any good ideas to sign up?

    Dean, if I understand you correctly, you are talking about next-next year (CES 2014)?

    There is usually a "free" registration period for attendee-only usually started in mid July through the end of August. From September through December it is $100 and goes up to $200 in January.

    The "qualifications" are that one is in the industry. That said, with a domain name registered to receive email and some simple self-printed business cards one can create the "illusion" that they are in the industry. I know many people that have been doing this for years.

    Not that I do this... I am really in the business... I own a couple of "legit" businesses that qualify.

    CES is bar none the most exciting and entertaining convention in Vegas; I'm sure your wife would love it! So a little-low cost creativity and pre-planning will get her in the doors!

    I hope this helps?

    Love staying Downtown during CES. Good rates, easy bus to the convention hall.

    Dean, squidward is right, I needed to get a guy in one time, so I just printed a letter on my business letterhead that he was a representative of my company. Printing up some business cards is also going to be fine for sure.

    We will be rolling in on Friday 1/11 after CES. The room rate for the Orleans was $96 when we booked it a couple months ago. Checked yesterday and it was down to $58 (needless to say we called and got the lower rate). Is this an indication that not as many folks will be staying around after CES for the weekend?

    I have been going to CES for about 20 years. We are going the 6th thru 9th this year. We get all of our business done in one day, and vacation the rest.
    We will be staying at PHo.
