CES 2011: Easy Registration, Challenging Assignment

The Consumer Electronics Association made the final step of registration, badge-holder pick-up, easier for CES attendees this year. In addition to registration sites at the Venetian, Las Vegas Convention Center, and a number of hotels, a registration booth was set up in the baggage claim area of Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport. The line may have been 25-people deep when I approached on Wednesday around noon, but it moved quickly.

It felt good to head to my room with everything in order to begin touring the 106,595 square feet of exhibit space (190 suites and 19 meeting rooms) devoted to high-performance audio at CES 2011. With something like 53 additional exhibit spaces at T.H.E. Show at the Flamingo Hotel along the Strip from the Venetian, Stereophile’s scribes will have their work cut out for us.
