New NFC badges will aim to shorten queues for the annual tech show in Las Vegas.

CES 2014 registration opens, is free for a limited time

The 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas will take place between January 7th and 10th next year, and registration has opened for the show.

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) says attendees and the media can register now. Registration is free at the moment, but will increase to $100 from September 1st and $200 from January 2nd, 2014.

New badges will be used for the 2014 International CES show that use near field communication (NFC) in a bid to shorten queues. These will not be posted to attendees – but will instead be available for pickup at over 25 locations in Las Vegas including McCarran International Airport baggage claim areas, hotels and more.

CES attracts 150,000 of industry execs, retail buyers, content providers, entertainment executives, venture capitalists, engineers, government officials and media, with the latest tech products shown off to the world.

“This new badge process demonstrates another way that we are leveraging technology to make the CES experience better and more streamlined for CES attendees,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, International CES and corporate business strategy at CEA.

“Reduced wait times for badges means that our attendees can spend more time networking, doing deals, seeing the future on the exhibit floor and attending our world-class conference sessions. With more than 3,200 exhibitors and every major tech company expected to participate, CES will bring decision makers from all of the major industries that touch technology together in one place to experience the latest in innovation.”
