It'll be sparsely attended, everything is crashing to the ground. How necessary are gadgets? Folks choose food over electronic bling.

Just a quick question.

How much is entry to CES? Are there any requirements for having to gain access to the show?

Just that I'm going to be in LA this time next year, so it'd be cool to attend it next year (if I was allowed). =S

Seems it was free if you registered early enough:

Quote:
The fee structure for admission to all exhibits, TechZones, SuperSessions, keynotes and selected conference sessions has changed. Please take note of these important dates:

Before October 31, 2008 $0.00

November 1, 2008 — 5 p.m. EST, January 2, 2009 $100.00

5:01 p.m. EST, January 2, 2009 — On-site $200.00

Always wanted to go as well, and visit LA in general.
