Its official I’m going to the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2016 and covering it for Cutegeek, Examiner, and for the first time Hi-Tech Chic! I finally settled on flights and booked them! I think this flyer I got in the mail just made me realize I’m going to Vegas baby! I will only be at CES January fifth through the seventh, basically for Pepcom’s Digital Experience and Showstoppers so I don’t have to run around the convention center.
Pepcom’s Digital Experience and Showstoppers are my favorite events; it gives press the unique opportunity to see the latest and greatest of technology before it’s displayed or more up close than at the convention center. Most of the people and products I personally want to view are usually at these two shows. I will also be doing some one off evening cocktail parties January the fifth and the sixth.
To my media friends; I have received over 500 email requests. I’m not sure how I got so popular but I’m only one person so I will start responding to those I will meet up with. Note I will not being going to the convention center only attending Pepcom’s Digital Experience and Showstoppers.
To check out what CES shenanigans I will be up to you can follow me on twitter at @nrpena, @cutegeek, and @hitechchic OR to get the recap or new posts about my CES 2016 experience check back on Cutegeek, Examiner, and Hi-Tech Chic.
So wish me luck and let the games begin!!

I am back home in ATX after being at CES, Unveiled, Pepcom Digital Experience and Showstoppers in Vegas since Sunday! Needless to say I am thrilled to be out of Vegas and able to get online…and make a call on my cell phone.
I saw some amazing products and will be sharing my experience after I get some rest- it’s true you do not really sleep in Vegas…or eat! My favorite products hands down were the drones, audio, and robots! In true Nina style I was drawn to the LifeJacket from Altec lansing.
To keep all you cutegeekers intrigued here are some pics and videos from CES, Unveiled, Pepcom Digital Experience and Showstoppers. Stay tuned for my full review of the show including my CES, Unveiled, Pepcom Digital Experience and Showstoppers.

I am very excited to announce I just received my confirmation for my press badge for CES 2015 and Showstoppers! It seems like yesterday I was at CES 2014; it was the first year I was solo and what an experience from meeting 50 cent to standing next the piano while John Legend serenated us. Looking back at my CES and Showstoppers experience my all-time favorite event was Showstoppers which showcased hands-on demos for press only (and they have an open bar and great food). At Showstoppers I had more face time with companies and had the opportunity to test out products (unlike CES where we are packed like sardines in the convention center and wait in line to see one product for a minute).
I learned a few things from CES 2014, CES Unveiled and Showstoppers to make this year more effective. First, no matter how cute your heals are walking a day in the Las Vegas Convention Center is murder on your feet! Second, when setting up media meetings schedule them in the same area of the convention center and give myself an hour between each meeting. Last, eat and take advantage of the free meals press gets. I would say to also rest and sleep while there but I won’t…BECAUSE IT’S VEGAS BABY!
CES this year has over 3,000 exhibiting companies and as much as I want to see everything unless I clone myself (one Nina in this world is enough) it’s just not going to happen. Just like last year I am reaching out to my cutegeek fans to tell me what you want me to check out at CES and Showstoppers.
Here is THE list of all the exhibitors thus far: http://ces15.mapyourshow.com/6_0/alphalist.cfm?CFID=58268244&CFTOKEN=4bfbd6d4fb437775-A98DAA96-E449-0AF9-56F525364324EF00
