Each year, Pat Meier-Johnson hosts a two-day lunchtime event at Piero’s, a classy Italian restaurant across catty-corner from the Las Vegas Convention Center. There, many companies from around the word — most notably VIA and D-Link — show off their wares in a more intimate setting than the show floor. I visited these exhibits and herein present a brief from each of many companies
Lunch at Piero’s is always a great event during CES that we always try to attend. Piero’s Italian Restaurant is located within walking distance from the Convention Center and each year they have a 2 day luncheon for media. During this luncheon they invite companies to show off new products and technologies. We really like this event because we get a 1 on 1 with companies in a more relaxed atmosphere.
