CES 2000 Show Locations

CES is, in a word, huge.  This year, during a four-day period over 2,000 manufacturers exhibited myriad products, services and strains of influenza to more than 125,000 attendees from all over the world.  The exhibits and conferences commandeered over 1 million square feet of floor space spread throughout Las Vegas.
With these ever-expanding space requirements and multiple locations, CES suffers from acute multiple personality disorder-the character of the show changes dramatically with the particular venue.

At one end of the ambient spectrum are the traditional convention halls, such as the Sands Exhibition Center.

The familiar conventional hall ambience includes floorshow displays, narrow, often over-crowded aisles, and of course shockingly overpriced food.  Although some A/V vendors (such as Meridian) went to the trouble to install soundproofed demonstration booths, the majority of convention hall exhibitors settled for display-only open booths.
