Is The Era of The Big Trade Show Over?
CES was supposed to be greener than ever, but as Jaymi says, "Let's put aside the fact that CES is a massive tradeshow held in the middle of a desert, attracting a majority of people who could care less about the environment. We could go on about bottled water, plane flights, and organic food options all day long." At the International Builders Show, they are building virtual homes because they can't find the money to do the real thing. In November, 28,000 people flew to Phoenix to Greenbuild, something of a contradiction. Really, are these things an anachronism in this digital age?
