CEDIA 2014 - are you going?

Denver Sept 10-14th. I have my trip booked, it doesn't look like there is an AVS sponsored night out but I'm hoping to meet up with some of the AVS folks while I am there.


Looking forward to seeing the JVC projectors, attending anything presented by Joe Kane, and seeing some 4k content.

bump to see if anybody else is going next week. Still would like to get together with some of the AVS folks for a dinner out either Friday or Saturday night. If you are going and want to meet up for dinner, message me your contact info.

Yep, I'll be there, a meet-up on Friday night would be great, even if we just pick a bar and try to find each other. (we're the ones with the CEDIA badges! )

I'll be there Thursday late afternoon until Saturday at close (unless I run out of things to see and hear).

On another CEDIA attendees thread, I made the suggestion that those going to the private (and now closed) Dolby Atmos demos on Thursday meet up at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. just after 7pm right across the street from the convention center, so we could compare notes about our various experiences.

Less noisy than the After Hours party, though we could perhaps head over afterwards if there was still time.

PM me if you might be interested!

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

It's the 10th to the 13th. Saturday should be a better time to catch some of these popular demos because the hall supposedly starts to thin out.

I'm trying to see if anyone would be interested in heading over to Bubba Gump's across the street on Thursday at a little after 7. It might be more conducive to chatting in a smaller AVS group and talk about our CEDIA experiences, etc. etc. Some will be coming from a small group event and we can talk Atmos with those who unfortunately didn't make the cut.

The After Hours party could be pretty loud and difficult to "save tables."

Give me a PM if interested.

I'll be there as well and second the suggestion for a renegade AVS Party on Friday night at a local bar / restaurant.

Brad (KNKKNK) and David (dlbeck) will be there as well as Matt (BrolicBeast) who has already chimed in!

Oh....and we'll be arriving late Thursday morning and departing early Saturday.

I am trying to figure out if I should stay until saturday... it sounds like yes. is arriving thursday a problem ? (too late?)

We are trying to figure out between wed night vs thurs morning, but problem is wed night extra hotel room cost- thurs- is 9/11 and my buddy doesn't want to fly that day because he is a pussy.

What days are most important to attend?

Is Saturday a big deal if our flight leaves at noon or 1pm ? Would I miss much ? The 7pm flight is more $$- and I don't get home to 6am Eastern time

Unless you are signed up for courses or have a specific hospitality event you are booked to attend, it really doesn't matter when you show up and depart as the only source of your 'entertainment' will be the show floor. If you like to see each booth in its entirety, it may take you a day or so. If you browse, then probably just a day.

You could always take a redeye on Friday night to save on one hotel night.

Is the CEDIA app for your phone actually useful ? Any reason I really need it ?

Well it's official. I am attending.

I found much cheaper better times flight out of Newark with no layover, less travel time, and arrive wed night leave later on Saturday - Works for me

I'm up for an AVS gtg meet n greet BTW. PM me. We can exchange cell #'s for text if that's easier than AVS PM.

I'm going for sure, I live here in Denver and a friend got me in. This is also my 1st one, very psyched to be going! Please tell me I don't have to be a part of this private Atmos thing to be able to demo it!

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

No. At a minimum, Procella Audio will have a full Atmos demo in their booth which is a 10 person theater.

Sounds good to me. I'm up for anything that isn't a Brazilian barbecue, as that is where I am eating on Saturday night
