I can tell you that this year's CES was a very different show and the fact that major names are leaving the floor next year doesn't bode well for the organization. Many of the second tier OEMs had offsite showcases and briefings at hotels like the Venetian, which was like its own mini CES this year. Even bigger names like Lenovo just rented an off-floor trailer to brief the press. John Q Public may have been there in droves but the major players that showcase are opting for cheaper venues than the show floor. It ought to be interesting to see how this pans out next year.

I wasn't there, but it's a fair argument to state that the increased attendance was probably due to the "get it before it's gone" feeling that was in the air before CES began.
The big names leaving (or having smaller sideshows ) is a bad sign in my opinion.
