Besides being able to check out all of the latest in tech gear, CES is a great place to network, and what better setting to do that than a party? This year, there were over 50 parties going on during CES. It is impossible to attend them all, because many take place at the same time... and if you plan to get any work done, you can't say out partying every night.
We did find time to hit a few parties this year. First up is The Tech Zone CES Kickoff Party, which was hosted Sunday night at the Absolut Suite in Caesars Palace.
This party is hosted by famous blogger John Chow, who also runs The Tech Zone and is co-hosted by ThinkComputers.org and FutureLooks.com
NZXT, Tagan and FlickIM were also in attendance and had separate areas set up to show off some of their products.
As mentioned in the intro, parties are a great place to hang out with online friends and meet other site owners. We got to hang out with Bob from ThinkComputers.org and Ashley from ThisComplicatedLife.com...
As well as John and a bunch of other really cool people.
John and Bob were knocking back drinks all night. After all, isn't that what a party is all about?!
We arrived at the party a bit late but things were still swinging in high gear for another hour or two.
Overall, the CES Kickoff Party was really fun. This year's suite was a good bit bigger than last year's party at the MGM Grand. Thanks to John, Bob and Stephen for putting on another great event, I can't wait until next year!
