What??? I Didn’t Get Sick @ CES!

Come on, everyone knows either you’re going to get sick the second day of the show or the day after you return home. It happens to us all. Not this year.

Which makes me wonder – did everyone stop sneezing and coughing into their hands? I love the new ,more proper and politically correct way to cover your cough or sneeze … bend your arm and cough into the bend. Well how does that help when everyone is hugging each other hello? The arm that just became contaminated is now actually touching the other persons nose. Yuck.

I did dilute one Airborne supplement into 4 ounces of water each morning so I’d like to call out Airborne for the reason I didn’t get sick. Here’s what’s in it – 17 herbs and nutrients including vitamins A, C and E; riboflavin; magnesium; zinc; selenium; manganese; sodium; potassium; amino acids; an herbal extract blend of echinacea, maltodextrin, and forsythia. Sounds good, right?

I did like the way one person which I won’t name set the rules going into CES. It was the NO TOUCH RULE. No kissing. No hugging. No shaking hands. Well, I’m happy to inform you this person for the first time in years had a clean bill of health during and after the show. Can you imagine if everyone did this … CES would take on a Stepford Wife feel. That would be weird.

For the first time in a while I actually got a chance to walk the floor … the Bell helicopter and Furrion luxury smart yacht were totally cool. If you missed it check out the links. AI was a hot ticket and the LG roll-up OLED TV screen was spectacular. Can’t help but imagine what this could lead to … while discussing your new media room with your Technology Designer and asking what size TV makes sense, he/she responds “let’s just roll it onto the entire wall”. Now that’s cool!

Always enjoy the Women in Consumer Technology Legacy award reception. It’s great that once a year we celebrate the women that have helped shape this male-dominated industry. It’s definitely becoming the place to be seen on the 1st night of the show.

Congratulations to the entire CTA team for once again producing the “Greatest Show on Earth.”

See you at CES 2020!
