The Social Network: A Year of Hope
Another thing that the industry should be looking forward to during the beginning of the year is the Consumer Electronics Show. The attendance level may be down from last year, but those of you who are going should find an amazing experience of hope, education and exploration. I say hope because everyone who'll attend has suffered through the same recession. Many of them have also been exploring the latest online technologies. Use this convention to network with peers and find out from them what strategies or new business models worked or failed. As an industry, we need to support one another in order for all of us to succeed.
Another great networking opportunity will be at the Women in CE Remix event on Thursday, January 7, from 6-8pm. Tickets will be on sale for $25 up until the day of the event. Make sure to contact Carol Campbell (firstname.lastname@example.org) for questions, ticket sales and sponsorship opportunities.
Women in CE is an excellent group that offers resources and ideology for women involved in the CE industry, those who support the growth and success of women in the industry, or simply those who support building a greater and more diverse community within the workplace and industry. The event at CES will feature influential keynote speakers and mentors, along with complimentary hor d'oeurves and cocktails. Not only is this event positive for your professional career, it's a great way to talk to people who know how to drive high-volume sales through the women and children of the household.
