The International Consumer Electronic Show is a great event if you love accounting, economics, and business matters in general. One need not just be a geek in the tech world, as defined by them, to find enjoyment in CES. Interestingly enough, there were moments to share a picture with others participating, in-between the walking, getting back and forth, and just taking in the surrounding scenery. And if your're familiar with Mardi Gras, and other large scale activities around the world, its quite common place to take time out to enjoy oneself, as socializing and deal making go hand-in-hand.
Accordingly, among the array of display booths, there were certainly free promotional giveaways, free snacks, and interactive demonstrations for all, inclusive to the product debuts, support from well known celebrities, and after-hour activities at glamour spots in Las Vegas. Going back to personal experience, there are some, whom you cross paths with, have a difficult time digesting that co-mingling with others and laughter and picture taking, does not divert the business purpose for being there, nor detracts from the seriousness of the event; even furthermore, some forget that most of us can be engaging in a wide range of subject matters that in no way changes our perspectives. To add some light, the Int'l CES has a vastness of possibilities through the meeting of others. In the words of an observer, it was called the ideal gathering for networking. But suffice it to say, the CES is a chance to forge alliances and relationships, toward the long-term.
Fundamentally, we all have desire to be successful; economics is important to all of us; meeting with many of the organizations were important events for both of us; the vibing and discussions were part of a mutuality, designed to help us each; and there is no one way street in this equation of interactions. The products brought to bear were created to solve problems and be positive facilitators in some manner, with the underlying ambition to make it a financial success. And in this context, we clearly, no matter our festive participation in occasions, in the maintenance of our choices in life, will still gravitate to our personal passions and interests. If one, for example, wants to be an accountant or a reporter on economic matters, enjoyment of the CES will not change them toward the direction to seek a role in the sports' or educational community, as some type of trainer or counselor or teacher. Nor would attendance of the multitude of social events re-create a technologically based person or engineer into becoming an entertainment promoter.
Having fun is part of human nature; the ability to complete the business task at hand and find leisure in the aftermath is both important in accomplishing success and contributing toward living happily. The attendance of the CES was a positive experience in many regards; you had the chance to meet a lot of positive people, a lot of astute people, a lot of creators with vision, and people who understand the nature of their industry and their business model. But equally, it was immensely a ball to meet others simply taking the time to appreciate the moment, at hand, to share a laugh or two. For when the smoke had clear, the day had ended, and the conference had run its course, life might get back into its grind, but we are a little better off by the forging of new partnerships with others.
