Chris, I called CES and asked them this very question. They told me it was open to the general public. I then registered on the CES web site without difficulty. The CES representative I spoke with on the phone told me just to put the name of my law firm as the company name, and to put it in the category of "other." They told me to register my wife in the "spouse" category. I have already received my badges. I have heard several statements to the effect that CES is only open to the industry, and there is at least one company web site that says this (probably as a clever device to get you to sign up through them), but I believe that the confusion might be explained by the fact the CES previously might have not been open to the general public.

Initially, if you registered before December 15, it was free. They just extended this to December 29, so hurry. Otherwise, it's $75 at the door. You can register online at www.cesweb.org.

There are some areas that are closed to us common folks. Last year, for example, you had to be invited to see the Toshiba exhibit as it was inside a private room.
For fun, don't miss the special exhibits at the Rivera Hotel.
