CES 2008 - first day
Posted by Kate Ashley - Executive Director, Marketing & Retail Channel

Velocity Micro is at CES. My apologies to those who were checking in for the first post yesterday and were disappointed - after 11 meetings and then the vendor soirees, the window for witty cogent writing closed. But not to fear - you will be getting the latest from the show floor and environs throughout the rest of the show - please check back in for updates every few hours.

CES seems to get crazier every year. It's the industry's largest trade show with some 150,000 attendees cramming into over a million square feet of convention space, showing and checking out everything from the new Sony OLED (3mm thick) to car audio innovations and robotic gorilla heads. Then there's the meeting and greeting, wheeling and dealing, and wining and dining that really drive the show.

We're frequently asked why Velocity Micro does not have a booth on the show floor. It's a very simple answer - the primary reason to get a booth is to attract new customers. Given our outstanding partnerships with Circuit City and Best Buy, we're not interested in expanding our retail presence - and since the show is industry only, we're not seeing direct customers either. So for us CES is about meeting with the press and our vendor partners. To facilitate this, we've got a suite at the Bellagio where we are conducting meetings (the only reason we can get 12 meetings a day in - as any veteran can tell you, cab lines are not for the faint of heart and transportation time between the strip and the convention center can easily run over an hour). It gives us an opportunity to demo some of our most exciting products and have very meaningful meetings.

Up next - a word from our president and one geek's take on CES 2008.
