To qualify for participation in The Last Gadget Standing:

• You must be an exhibitor at CES either at your own booth or a booth hosted by a partner.
• Your submitted product must ship by March 1, 2011.
• If your product is under NDA until CES, please make these restrictions clear in your nomination, and we can discuss details of how to handle that NDA.

Send an email to [email protected] with the following information:

Manufacturer Information
• Company name
• Contact information (PR firm or internal)

Product Information
Submit a brief paragraph summarizing the product, including:

If accepted as a candidate, you must agree to:

NOTE: If you are under NDA until CES but wish to participate, you may qualify for a special waiver. Please contact us for more details.

B. Furnish a detailed product description, product photo and speaker’s photo for the web site.

C. Provide a contact that is reachable on Dec. 10, 2010. We will be notifying finalists on that date, so it is very important that we are able to email with and speak to this contact to give them additional details about what is further required to be part of this event.

D. Be prepared to have a speaker demonstrate the product during CES in a 4-minute, entertainment-filled presentation. This is a must, since we will be notifying finalists on Dec. 18 of their being part of our event at CES. Since there is not a lot of time between then and the event, you should have someone ready to go if selected.

E. Have a company representative willing to log in to to participate in dialog with readers (once a week is plenty) once they are beginning to comment on your product via our blogger.

F. Attend a rehearsal on January 7, 2011, 4:30-5:30 p.m.. LVCC North Hall N257 in order to check your audio video.

G. Be at the event at 10:30 a.m. on January 8, 2011 in LVCC North Hall N257.

H. Optional: Providing product or swag for raffles and trivia contest to be held at the event.
