I'm considering a trip to Infocom next month. I've been to many CES and CEDIA shows but have never been to Infocom. What should I expect? My Priorities: Front HT/Presentation Projectors, Plasma displays and LCD displays. Any insight into the show would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I went last year in Anaheim and hope to make it to Vegas for a day.

It was a FP buyers dream come true. If it wasn't at Infocomm, it was either obsolete or positioned for the far distant future.

The biggest problem is that even if a product is shown at Infocomm doesn't mean it will ever be shpped.

Thanks for the reply.
How large is the show/displays? Are the displays arranged by manufacturer or by product classification?

Its a trade show. Booths are by manufacturer.

In Anaheim my recollection was that it used 3 very large rooms. Probably about 50,000 sq. ft.

You can also expect to meet Don Stewart, Thumper, many others and just maybe myself if I can get away from my day job of saving the world.

We will have a booth set-up as well titled: "Come Kiss the HT Gods."

-Mr. Wigggles

Ps. You are coming Ken right? Our booth wouldn't be complete with out you.

Wiggles,

The world is already doomed, don't waste your time.

I can be bribed with beer.

If we could only get Bob Wood to use some of his frequent flyer miles...
