As anticipated the CES 2009 saw a decline in visitor numbers compared to the CES 2008. The current numbers published by CEA show a decline by about 20,000 visitors compared the CES 2008.
The CES 2009 was still a big show and the organizers of CES still draw a positive picture. More than 2,700 global companies, including 300 new exhibitors, unveiled an estimated 20,000 new technology products across 1.7 million net square feet of exhibit space. In terms of celebrity density the CES 2009 was as good as CES 2008. The 2009 CES had Tom Hanks, Alex Trebek, Jimmy Fallon (watch this must see interview), Stevie Wonder, Counting Crows' Adam Duritz, Usher, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Reggie Jackson, Dr. Oz and Ludacris.

Another indicator though shows that the crazy times are over. The decline of the number of Booth Babes is dramatic. We were only able to collect a small gallery this year. I have to admit though that we have also missed the sexy surfer dudes and girls from TiVo.
