If you are still wondering what CntrStg is and what it has to offer to bloggers besides the fastest internet connection on the Vegas strip; engaging presentations and conversations;b and a place to relax, hang and get some work done - I did a quick video tour after my long hour of sleep the night(well actually early the morning) before we opened the doors yesterday of our Suite at the Wynn with some folks from HP. My kids Tweetted me the link this afternoon -Thanks Girls, I miss you too!!!

Enjoy and hope to see you at CntrStg at CES 2009!!!

Making the Most of Your Time At CES and CntrStg

With CES fast approaching, we’ve had a number of requests from the community for more information about the schedule of events at CntrStg.  We’re working hard to finalize all the details of which company is talking on what days and at what time. As soon as we have that nailed down, we will be posting it here for everyone to take advantage of.  I am hoping that we can have everyone in agreement and can make that schedule available to you within the next week.

In the interest of maximizing your time and schedule, we wanted to share with you the focus for each day.

CntrStg will open on Wednesday January 7th at 4pm for our Welcome Party and Keynote Live Stream. Thursday January 8th will be Mobile PC Day. On Friday January 9th, we will have Home Electronics Day. And finally, Saturday January 10th will be Mobile Phone / Handheld Day.

I realize that this doesn’t provide much information, but hopefully it can help you in planning when you would like to be in CntrStg and when you can spend time on the show floor.  Don’t forget, we’ll have a shuttle bus running between the convention center and the Wynn to make it even easier for you to get around.
