I am cross-posting this because I think it may be urgent for many folks here ...
I got an e-mail today from CES that I hope has saved me a trip for nothing.
Silly me, I thought I could attend CES as a private citizen -- with no company or trade affiliation needed. So I was surprised to see this e-mail saying I would need to show TWO FORMS OF ID to pick up my BADGE-HOLDER.
"TWO FORMS ?" I thought ? Yes, it turns out that you will need to show both a personal picture ID (driver's license, etc.) and one BUSINESS ID (business card, etc.) showing the company you represent at the show.
So ... I figured I was in trouble because I had 'cleverly' listed my "company name" when registering as "CONSUMER". I've gone back and changed my mailing info on my registration to my actual company -- for which I will be able to show a business card.
This is a security measure that was not in place last year. So if you did what I did, then you'd better hustle over and change your registration !
I am just hoping this is going to work. I hope I haven't pre-paid for a week's hotel and then get blocked from actually going into the show !
