CES 2013 Highlights

Another CES has came and went, and 2013’s was another incredible year for the CableJive team! Thanks to everyone who came by to share it with us. Here’s just a few highlights from the jam-packed 4 day event.

1.) Here’s a shot of our booth from Day 1, right at the start of CES 2013. Complete with interactive ProJive XLR & Instrument displays, fully functioning dockBoss air and samDock displays, the return of our super popular xlSync Charging Station, and our fully stocked product wall.

2.) Our ProJive Instrument cable display was set up for visitors to demo, complete with an iPad, Electric Guitar, GarageBand, and a connected speaker dock for anyone who really wanted to rock out. Thankfully, a couple members from the world famous heavy metal band “Lamb of God” stopped by on Day 2 and gave our setup the shredding it deserved!

3.) On Day 3 we decided to really shake things up and did a huge Kaleidaz giveaway. Anyone who stopped by was welcome to take a Kaleidaz cable totally free. We gave away all 1,000 cables before lunch time.

4.) It wasn’t just great to meet so many customers at this year’s show, but many of the media people as well. Here you can see Mike, our fearless leader, getting interviewed on camera right in our booth.

5.) If you ever wanted to know how many business cards you get at these events, take a look at all of these we got, then realize that the show was only half over at this point.

6.) Here’s one last shot of Pete standing victoriously next to our broken-down booth at the end of the show. Much less stuff to ship back thanks to everything we gave away. Thanks again to everyone who stopped by our booth this year. See you at CES 2014!!

Preparing for CES 2012!

CES 2011 was groundbreaking for CableJive and we loved every minute of it. However, it became clear pretty quickly that visually speaking, our booth left something to be desired. Surrounded by incredible setups from companies like Griffin and Mophie, it became quite apparent that in 2012, we would have to step our game up.

And up our game shall step! We’re going to have double the space at next year’s show, and a much more impressive setup. Speaking of which, the main “structure” for our 2012 booth arrived just the other week. Without giving away too much, here’s a few snapshots of what transpired:

Gotta love getting deliveries away from the warehouse. Nothing like seeing an 18-wheeler try to find street parking.
(Little did I know the crates had wheels. Handtruck = not necessary. FAIL!)

 The structure came in these huge crates, each weighing over 100 lbs each! Good thing our elevator works.

A peak inside one of the crates. I know, I can sense your suspense. “WHAT COULD IT POSSIBLY LOOK LIKE?!?!”
(or, “Wow, a bunch of boxed metal. That’s cool man.”)

Well, you’ll have to wait and see what the end result looks like. Not giving away the big surprise yet.
Stay tuned here for the latest on our CES 2012 prep!

2011 CES Day 1: Awesome

We’re really, really happy about all of the visitors we had in the CableJive booth on day one of CES here in Las Vegas. It being our first CES we weren’t quite sure what to expect but were quickly overwhelmed with groups of people.

We’ve given away a lot of brochures, pens, and magnet chip clips. If you are at the show, swing by soon before we run out of awesome freebies.

CES Booth is Set Up

The CableJive CES 2011 booth is set up. We got to meet some nice neighbors who were also setting up. Booth 4625 in the North Hall for anyone who wants to swing by. We have some freebies.

Sorry about the fuzziness.

CableJive on the CES iPhone App

CableJive CES iPhone App
One week to go before CES 2011 kicks off. CableJive will be there, at booth 4625. We’re excited to meet folks and chat about all the good things that are going on this year.

I’ve been fiddling with the iPhone app, browsing around the maps and looking through the company listings. So much information, for so very many companies. A lot to look through, a hint at the promise of just how much there will be to see and do when in Las Vegas.

CableJive has it’s own corner of the iPhone app, with company information, booth location, and a few product PDFs.

Check it out.

The CableJive CES 2011 Simulator

We’re getting excited to meet a bunch of folks, have some fun, and see a whole lot of electronics at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. We’re booth number 4625, we’re looking forward to seeing you there.

CableJive (mostly our CES expert Cindy) has been really busy, working on all the preparations for the big event. There are a lot of details to coordinate for one of these shows, I had no idea. The sheer volume of the CES instructions handbook requires a dedicated person with a good memory to keep tabs on all of the details.

A few months back we set up a CES simulator in one of the CableJive offices. The office dimensions made for a perfect real-world practice area to get the spacing, materials, furniture. It’s been fun to get everything set up and then talk through what we’re seeing. Normally this is our conference room, so we’ve been having our weekly company meetings in the simulator which has spurred lots of conversations, creativity, and speculation about the event. We were there last year, but only to attend.
