We will have a BITCOIN booth at the huge Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week.  This is a massive media event.  Last year there were 5000 media and reporters at this event, and a total of about 140,000 people.

If you want to see some good, accurate reporting about Bitcoin, I would encourage you to contact every news reporter you know and tell them to come by our booth to interview us.  We are booth #70018 in the Venetian Ballroom.

Link to our booth and floorplan:  http://ces12.mapyourshow.com/5_0/exhibitor_details.cfm?exhid=T0009202

In our booth we will have the following personnel available for media interviews:

Tony Gallippi, CEO of Bit-Pay
Stephen Pair, CTO of Bit-Pay
Roger Ver, CEO of Memory Dealers and Director of Marketing of BitInstant
Alison Skipper, Sales/Marketing of Bit-Pay

I have some brochures printed up which I will post here in this OP as soon as we lift the embargo (they include some top-secret unreleased Bit-Pay products  Smiley)

Roger will be selling virtual and physical bitcoins in the booth for cash, credit cards, and PayPal.  Yes, virtual bitcoins for credit card, right in the booth!

We are spending about $10,000 of our own money to attend this show and promote Bitcoin to the world.  I am asking the forum members to help us get as many reporters to come by our booth as possible!  (hint - a little bitcoin scandal next Tuesday wouldn't hurt).  

If you would like to make a donation towards our efforts, you can visit http://lovebitcoins.org and we will list you on the site as a supporter.  BONUS:  if you make a donation by Sunday, I will have a printed list of all the supporters in our booth for every reporter to see!

Thanks
Tony

EDIT:  if you make contact with a reporter and they say they will stop by, or may stop by, please let me know their name and organization so we can be on the lookout for them!

NEW: Here is the sign we will have in our booth.  it will be standing up in a nice sign holder.  Thanks to all our supporters!

NEW: Here is the sign we have to help the reporters get started with a wallet (and of course we will show them how to use it)
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/52611567/CES%20wallets.pdf

NEW: We have 1000 copies of this brochure to help our face-to-face education about bitcoins
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/52611567/WeLoveBitcoin-trifold-flattened.pdf

EMBARGO LIFTED:  Here is the new Bit-Pay product - the Deposit Card!  Anyone can now accept bitcoins in-person and have dollars deposited daily into their US Bank account.

Video Demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UmynaPg8hw

Brochure:  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/52611567/BitPay-trifold-flattened.pdf

I will have a printer IN OUR BOOTH to print these on the spot for any reporter that wants one.  I'll even scan their card and send them bitcoins (ok just a few pennies) so they can see how bitcoins work.  

Bitcoins as a virtual instrument are difficult for non-geeks to understand.  But give someone a card they can carry around as a way to receive money into their bank account, and I think even the most dim-witted reporter can get this.

Sample cards:

their programmers have something wrong with their coldfusion redirect.  The hyperlink is pointing people to "https   bit-pay.com" and they left out the :// despite it clearly being in the address.

I sent an email to let them know.

Great to hear!  I e-mailed a couple people at Smart Money & the Wall St. Journal that I've talked with before about other tech/finance projects.  Will post again if I hear anything back.
