CES, the largest consumer electronic trade show, is taking place this week in Las Vegas. It was reported by an NBC affiliate today that CES may be leaving Las Vegas! Yes, just like the movie title. Thanks to our friend Blagica Stefanovski on giving us the heads up on this one. We thought it would be great if we could help bring CES to Chicago. Why not? Chicago is a world class city with the facilitates to host a huge event like the World Fair or Olympic games. Not to mention Chicago has lots of tech companies. So we have decided to help initiate the ‘Bring CES to Chicago’ movement. If you are interested in supporting the cause let us know in the comments below or email us directly. Also join the Bring CES to Chicago group on Facebook.
We think lot of groups including folks in the Mayor’s Office, the ITA, the CEC, World Business Chicago, etc will need to rally around the idea of bringing CES to Chicago. So we wanted to kickstart bringing everyone together in an effort to make CES in Chicago a reality.
Eric Olson and I just did a quick BlogTV video episode video discussing bringing CES to Chicago (below). Admittedly, the video is a little choppy since I was on the west coast and Eric was in the east so bear with us. We will be working out the kinks in upcoming video episodes.
