CES 2010

Filed under: Work — maryparadox @ 4:54 pm

My company goes to the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas every year. This is the place where companies show off their newest technology and other companies come to buy and make deals. You see all of the cutting edge stuff along with a lot of ridiculously dressed “booth babes” and TVs as far as the eye can see (including the paper thin one in the upper right photograph). I’ve always wanted to go but this is the first year that work was willing to send me. I was able to go for one day (and two nights) at the end of my week vacation.

I went to go see how the product I’ve been working on was being sold, to see if it was working as expected, and to see if it was popular and we were actually making sales. On all fronts we seemed to be doing really well!

I also went to get to know the rest of the people in the company that I don’t see very often — upper management (including mine), sales, and marketing. What better way to get to know people then at a company sponsored party with an open bar?!
After the party we tried our hand at gamboling (I lost the entire $100 my boss foisted to me) and had some drinks.

Then we had some sushi, and some drinks.

Then we went dancing (and had some drinks) until 4am when I stumbled to the airport and caught a flight back to normality. Overall it was fun and educational and I’m really happy that I got to go.
