The Social Network: Shake Your Butts and Move Your Feet; Your Brains Will Follow
I would like to start off by thanking everyone who attended the Women in CE REMIX party at Tabu Lounge during CES. It is so great to see the CE industry support women who are positive influences.
Special thanks goes to Denise Morales, vice president of sales at Monster Cable, who was our first Hall of Fame inductee and Master of Ceremonies. We chose her for good reason: She is a positive influence to women in all industries, someone who supports and builds her team through positive reinforcement and motivation. I would also like to express sincere thanks to our sponsors: Stolichnaya Vodka, Chief and Sanus Systems, speck, Sirius|XM, Consumer Technology Publishing Group, Certified Cyber Solutions, Perfect Path, Monster Cable, Definitive Technology, Elan Home Systems, Vann's, Sonance, Delano Associates, MGM Grand, and of course Women in CE and its founder, Carol Campbell, the backbone of this amazing organization and publisher of Custom Retailer.
This was my first year attending CES, and I found it invigorating. I was expecting to run into apprehensive retailers and manufacturers who have been beaten down by the recession. That wasn't the case. If the industry's marketing departments could tap the amount of excitement and energy generated at 2010 CES, we'd be an even stronger entity in 2010.
