SABS’s CTO @ CES 2011

Sea and be Scene’s (SABS’s) Chief Technology Officer (CTO) was just at (@) the International Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada last week and he’s brought us back the scoop.  John Swinimer NL is a PR Dude by day and attends pretty much every technology based trade show in North America – so it’s great to get an inside look from someone who’s seen it all.  We also asked him to put $20 on red…and apparently we lost…but we’ll never really know will we.

More than 20,000 innovative products from 2,700 technology companies were on display for the more than 140,000 industry professionals. 

CES 3Having attended the show annually for the past six years, this year was bigger than ever. There was a lot of chatter about what to look for in a tablet or a notebook. Booths were bigger and everyone seemed very upbeat. Hopefully this is a sign that the economy is on the rebound.
