INFO: Anyone else goin’ to CES 2013? (Part 1)

imageThis evening I made the decision to go to CES 2013.  I bought the flight, hotel, and started my traditional routine for preparing for the trip.

This may seem like a peculiar question to some but allow me to explain.  Despite the fact that Microsoft is not attending CES anymore, I decided that there are several reasons why it still makes sense for me to go:

  1. Windows 8 Hardware & Peripherals:  This is a huge year for Microsoft and the hardware/peripherals ecosystem will be booming.
  2. Online Services Providers:  The future of computing is online services that leverage devices as end points.
  3. Vacation/Las Vegas:  Nothing says vacation like Vegas casinos, spas, restaurants, clubs, shows, bars, & sightseeing.  Whee!

So here’s a few things that will hopefully help others in their trips to CES 2013.

The CES Expo/Exhibit floor is open during the following hours:

  • Tuesday, January 8: 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, January 9: 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Thursday, January 10: 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Friday, January 11: 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

To get around CES, you’ll want two maps which have been provided:
