We just got a great tip in about having an application on your Mobile device to check exhibitors and conference sessions for the CES 2009. However the CntrStg presentation schedule won’t be on this. Keep posted we are finalizing our schedule right now.

 “This year, CES has gone mobile! Introducing CES Mobile – a new navigation tool you can use as soon as you get to CES. With CES Mobile, you can search for and locate exhibitors and conference sessions you want to see.

CES Mobile allows you to: 

  • Search the exhibitor directory
  • View exhibitor listings
  • Find conference sessions – times, dates and locations
  • Build a mobile event plan with the exhibitors and sessions you want to see
  • Book a reservation at a local restaurant

CES Mobile is a slimmed-down mobile version of the MyCES Personal Planner portal; the official attendee search and planning tool for the 2009 International CES®. If you have registered for MyCES and have already created an event plan, you will see all the exhibitors and sessions that you have bookmarked. Even if you don’t have a MyCES portal, you can still use CES Mobile to help you navigate CES.

  1. Thanks for helping to spread the word about this new MyCES Mobile option. It should be a real time-saver on the show floor.

    Why you don’t just publish the download link for MyCES Mobile on the website instead of requesting to send an SMS? Indeed, “standard text message and data rates apply”….

    I have a four digit badge ID and cannot register. Why isn’t the application inserting any leading zeros?

    For the iPhone I would expect a “real” application rather than a web application which will create additional data roaming costs for international visitors.

    MyCES Mobile is conceptually a good idea but there is much room for improvement for CES 2010…………

  3. @Thomas, Just to be clear, we have nothing to do with CES Mobile. We simply posted this to spread the word about a service that we felt would help bloggers. If you’re having problems using the service or concerns about how it’s being run, you will need to take that up with the people running CES Mobile.

    Why do you not have a CES mobile app for the iPhone yet? This is shameful. You are the electronics industry and to not support the largest used platform is unbelievable. Maybe you could mail me a VHS tape explaining your reasons. Or would you rather use your new fax machine instead?
