CES 2009

It is already time to register for CES 2009 and there’s a new fee structure where people signing up before November 1 will get in *free* to everything but the regular sessions.    Althought those sessions are interesting the big deal at CES are the many world class exhibits of new technology and the CES Parties, so frankly you could have a great time there without attending any of the sessions at all.

As a blogger or press person you’ll get free admission to the sessions as well (this would run about $1000+, plus some really nice food, lounges, and freebies if they handle things like last year when even many press folks were envious of the great amenities at the blogging lounges.

I’ll be at CES again next year, hoping to find as many interesting stories as at CES 2008 when I got to interview David Filo from Yahoo, see Bill Gates, and hear GM’s CEO Talk about cool new cars.

I also had a great time at the Monster Blog Bash, Mary J. Blige Concert, SONY Poker Party, and PodTech’s Bloghaus (thanks to John Furrier and Robert Scoble who are always very cool conference characters.)

Here is the CES 2009 fee structure:
