CES 2012 may have officially come to a close yesterday in Las Vegas, but from the company’s headquarters in San Francisco, Klout is just getting started. Klout announced on their corporate blog on January 10, the first day of CES, that they would be crowning the first ever ‘King of CES.’ This person would be selected by receiving the most “+K’s” in the Klout topic: ‘CES 2012.’
Sponsored by T-Mobile, the contest extended through yesterday, January 13th at 11:59PM PT. And isn’t it enough, you may ask, that the King receives the respect and admiration of their peers? No. Says Klout. The CES 2012 King will also receive the ultimate “T-Mobile 4G Prize Pack, including the Samsung Galaxy S II with a year of service, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, and a T-Mobile 4G Mobile HotSpot.”
With all the talk of what’s to come at next year’s Consumer Electronics Show it’s easy to forget that it’s still taking place this year LIVE from Las Vegas. The conference continues through this Friday the 13th…whoah, really? We totally just realized this Friday is the 13th, watch out everybody!
Anyway, back to CES. Although most of the major product reveals and announcements have already taken place, there is still plenty to experience at CES and plenty of newsworthy events coming out of CES in the next few days. Also, stay tuned for TheTechUpload‘s special coverage of What’s Hot and What Really Just Not from this year’s CES.
As day 2 of the CES is almost wrapped-up, there’s still one more primary event left for the day, the Brand Keynote Panel at 4 p.m. PST (7 p.m. EST) featuring panelists from AT&T, GE, Facebook, Hyundai Motor America and Unilevel. This panel is sure to spark some interesting conversation on the future of brands and brand strategy for 2012.
