Would I go to CES Again? I met a gentleman who was attending his 40th CES. As soon as I recovered from the awe of hearing that, I asked him about his opinion about the show. He said he dreads the show - the show is just too big to cover! I understand what he means. Perhaps I would also dread the show a few years down the line. But for now, Yes, I am going to CES again, if possible, every year. One lesson I've learnt is that you pretty much can't get anything done if you go there alone. Next time, we plan to go as a team. Having experienced the event once, I only hope that we would be better prepared for CES 2015.
