The Ultimate Cheat Sheet on CES



Feeling overwhelmed by CES?

Don’t fret. You’re not alone. CES is the Superbowl of consumer tech and everybody’s anxieties run high with so much on the line. To help you stay focused, the experts at 2020 Exhibits have put together a 12-step cheat sheet to dominate at CES.

Follow these steps to being a hit in Vegas…

  1. Keep everything on the table (at first)
    Brainstorm, be open to new ideas, venture down creative roads. Basically, “throw everything against the wall and see what sticks”.
  2. Research
    Tap into whatever sources you have access to in order to accumulate knowledge and data about your market, your business environment, and your competition.
  3. Edit
    Get your fresh new ideas down to a manageable level. Eliminate the clutter and start to sharpen your focus.
  4. Refine your message
    Get a consensus on what you are trying to say and what you are trying to present. Write tag lines and mission statements in semi-permanent stone
  5. Create
    If you’ve prepared properly, the brass tacks should come easier. Knocking out web pages, videos, and copy drafts should be a matter of putting your head down and fleshing out the details.
  6. Choose a path
    Make the hard decisions and pick the messaging you want to go with. Resist the urge to keep ideas just because you have time put in. Consistency will be important down the road
  7. Put together a strategy
    Determine how your message is going to be delivered. Create a plan for campaigns, vendors, budgets, and timetables.
  8. Make some rules
    Building a brand requires enforcing guidelines. Make them the law of the land.
  9. Test
    Do some market testing with your new content? See how if it flies. Hard data tends to be pretty honest.
  10. Break some rules
    If your brand isn’t getting any traction, don’t let your attachment to the brand paint you into a corner. If reality is telling you to be flexible, you should listen.
  11. Socialize your content
    Once you’ve got creative content you are confident with, put it everywhere. Social media channels are an easy place to start.
  12. Elevate
    Think of your content as organic elements of your brand. Once something starts to take off, leverage that momentum. Build follow up pieces or add elements to it. The most successful content is constantly evolving.
