Bitcoin will return to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 11 days, bigger and better than last year!


January 8-11, 2013 - Las Vegas

We have an all new booth design, a corner aisle location, and many more exciting upgrades.  Over 150,000 people attended this show in 2012, and 2013 should be just as big.

The Bitcoin booth is funded by BitPay, Butterfly Labs, and Bitcoin Magazine.

We will give plenty of payment demonstrations, help install bitcoin wallets, show some mining hardware, give away some Bitcoin Magazines, sell some Casascius bitcoins, and most importantly answer questions and educate people with accurate information about bitcoin.

Bitcoin booth # 70312

Map to our booth:  http://www.mapyourshow.com/shows/index.cfm?Show_ID=ces13&exhid=T0009202&booth=70312&hall=O

Photos of our booth:






Here's how you can help:

Jan 2-3-4 are the days to press every reporter you know, get them to put Bitcoin booth 70312 on their short list of booths to visit.

Jan 8-9-10 are the days to push creative Twitter campaigns using #CES2013 and #bitcoin and mention "booth 70312"

Also, if you remember the spokesmodel tryouts we held last year, we have hired Stephanie to help us in the booth.  Stephanie is a licensed attorney in California with a background in Finance, and she can definitely talk a good bitcoin game!

Stephanie's audition:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoZmhAf0GKA

Any REAL bigshots you can get on the hook, invite them to our private welcome party on Monday night at the Cosmopolitan.  We have our own VIP space in the Library.  Have them contact me for details.



Also, Crystal from Whiskey Dicks will be helping us with the payment demos.  If you met Crystal at the Bitcoin Summit in Philadelphia, then you know she is a hard-core libertarian and she's stoked about bitcoin.



Tell reporters that the Bitcoin booth is not to be missed!!

Looks like a good booth plan for the CES crowd. I hope there will be others representing Bitcoin as well.

Not really. They're not at the LVCC, but at the Sands Convention Centre. That's like half an hour away from the "real" CES.

The Venetian is where all the startups are located, and it is where all the major companies go to scout emerging technologies.  Most of those types of people don't bother going to see the main hall with Justin Beiber and 50 Cent.  We are absolutely in the right location for the people we want to reach.

I'll be at CES as press and will make every attempt to drop by the booth. I'll contact you privately about the party - I have a prior engagement that night, but want to come if time permits.

I agree, the main hall is the general and flashy crap but the Venetian and other satellite locations are where the money people go.

At CES, it's not the location of booth, but the presentation of the swag that makes it a success.



Seriously, Tony, besides Bitcoin Magazine, what other swag are you guys planning on distributing? (just an 'I wonder' question)

Ah good idea, let me see if I can get my hands on a couple NEFT oilcans.  we don't have much table space for giveaways.

Looks to me there's enough space to store a couple dozen cans under the booth to be only dispersed to selected media folk or somebody you feel will take Bitcoin to the next level. (and hide the stash with the magazines)

It's really great to see the collaboration amongst businesses in this community. Smiley

Were there ever startups coming together to create an email protocol booth at an event like this 20 years ago?

BitPay, Butterfly Labs, and Bitcoin Magazine are doing great things for the promotion of bitcoin.

Thank you

I just noticed that Mt Gox is not in the mix this year.
