Tag: CES Virgin

This is the first CES that I (or anyone from Reckoner) has ever attended. The show, as I’m sure you know, is ridiculously large and instead of even beginning to remotely try and cover it all I’ve decided to write a series of shorter pieces based around what it’s like attending the show for the first time. I’m calling the series Stories from a CES Virgin and you can find all of them here.

Tech West is a hot mess of show floor, meeting rooms and restaurants taken over by brands to showcase their latest products. Spread across The Venetian, Sands and Wynn hotels it covers a huge ground base that extends to the lofty accommodation floors of The Venetian’s towers.

CES is huge. I don’t think there’s any other way for me to put into words just how fucking amazingly overwhelming it is to roam around the Las Vegas Convention Centre (LVCC) for eight hours and come out only seeing two of the three halls that exhibited and that the LVCC is only one of the three “official” areas of CES, called “Tech East”. It’s ridiculous.

Digital Experience (or Pepcom as pretty much everyone calls it) is another showcase, very similar to yesterday’s CES Unveiled but at a different location and with better food. Continue reading

Falling victim to the same conference stretching that I’ve seen at E3 over the past few years we now head into the second day of events that take place before the official start of the show on Thursday.

Intel, Samsung, Nvidia, LG, Sony, Faraday Future and others all held keynotes today. It’s crazy and there’s no way one person, or even a small team of people can attend and cover them all extensively. This is why, on the advice of someone fare more smarter and experienced with CES keynotes, I chose to go to none of them. Continue reading

We begin with CES Unveiled

ces-unveiled

Naturally two days before CES actually starts events begin to kick off under its umbrella. CES Unveiled is the first major one of these, actually run by the CES show and is an exclusive look for the media in attendance at a handful of products that are being shown off at the main show.

It’s also an opportunity for media folk to catch up, eat a bunch of finger food from a continually refilling buffet and enjoy a fully stocked open bar. That last one is the reason, I’m sure, many of them decide to attend. Continue reading
