I'm in the same boat and have gone to CES for MANY years (helped to formerly work at a company that ALWAYS had a large booth at CES every year). In the past, I've usually brought my proof (work badge and business card), just in case and shown it to them.
I'd rather not do snidely's method... I've likely already spilled the beans by contacting the CEA at the bottom of http://www.ceatechenthusiast.com/faq/list
. The FAQ mentions getting in on Thursday and Friday (last two days) for those who are "CEA Tech Enthustiast" members, but the last day always sucks since the show hours are shorter that day and everyone's packing up the last few hours.
Know of any companies giving out free attendance codes that would also bypass the credential check? I'd hate to travel there, pay for hotel, etc. and be turned away despite me be a CES alum for MANY years, in the past.
