Cool… CES has a “Blogger” category for working press now

Very cool, just noticed my registration confirmation from the Consumer Electronics Show early next month has a new category of working press: bloggers. Nice job, guys! Here’s what they explain:

2008 Consumer Electronics Show LogoYour registration for the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, the 2008 International CES, is now complete. You qualified for a BLOGGER BADGE. Your confirmation number is [xxxxx]. Please make a note of this number and have it handy if you need to contact International CES Customer Service.

The 2008 International CES will be held January 7-10, 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The credentials you provided qualified you for our newest badge category, a blogger badge. The blogger badge gives you access to our new, fully-equipped blogger lounges located in the Sands Expo and Convention Center (Sands/Venetian) Gallileo Room 901 and the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) Room 201-205 in South Hall 4. Both blogger lounges are sponsored by Plantronics. (Please note hours below.)

Your blogger badge allows entry to exhibits (during exhibit hours), keynotes and conference sessions, free of charge. You will also receive lunch coupons for each day of the show, as well as a coupon for one press bag. Lunch will be served Monday thru Thursday from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., or as long as supplies last, in both blogger lounges.

Now, do ya think Plantronics will be handing out headsets for those of us that podcast too? 🙂
