Viva Las Vegas

Posted on Jan 7, 2009 in Research, Trade Shows, Trends

I simply cannot believe how quickly 2008 has flown by and am amazed at all the wonderful events that have made the past twelve months without any doubt the most event- and wonderful year of my life.

Just four days after arriving in the Pacific Northwest last year, I set out to visit the CES and – hoping that this is a good omen for another fantastic year – I am doing the same thing in 2009, with the only difference being that there aren’t several days, but mere hours between my arrival in Washington and my departure to Nevada.

Having just come back yesterday at around midnight, I found myself back at SeaTac just 15 hours later, boarding a plane to Sin City. Now I am sitting here in my hotel room at Circus Circus, cranking away on work for a meeting tomorrow…

While Vegas certainly has a more familiar air to me the second time around, I am still dazzled by the random accumulation of lights, colors and styles and by the absence of good taste… Vegas will probably always be a fascinating place for me and I believe I will never get over the constant dose of culture shocks that it offers.

So, what do you think?
