CEA_thumb“The place” to be January 7-10, 2014 is Las Vegas at the International CES show. There’s a lot happening in consumer electronics and if you and/or your company does installation and home technologies integration, you should attend the show or at least follow the big news and happenings.

Need some reasons to attend? Consider THX Training and Certification, attend the CEA TechHome Mark of Excellence Awards ceremony, set up one-on-one Mentor meetings with seasoned CEA veterans for free guidance and advice, and check out the exhibits and launch of thousands of new products by the 3200+ exhibitors.

You can follow CES via social media all year long. Get breaking news during the show and learn more about the world’s most important technology event. Want to join the conversation? Be sure to use the official hashtag #CES2014.

I will be walking the show floor, visiting Eureka Park searching out the 140+ new start-ups and checking the progress on ones I’ve seen in years past, attending Parks Associates Connections Summit on Connected Home Devices and Services, learning about Ultra HD/4K and High-Performance Audio, listening to keynotes and conference sessions, and of course, enjoying great food, attending the Women In CE 2014 Legacy Awards Reception, and definitely networking with colleagues and making new friends.

If you are going, there’s still time to become a CEA member by January 1 (only $350 for retailer/integrator membership), save $100 and attend CES for FREE! Drop me an email and we can connect (I am one of the CEA mentors).
