Thanks for visiting my Consumer Electronics Show (CES) page!
My name is Jared Bendis and I have been attending and reviewing the International Consumer Electronics Show CES in Las Vegas since back in 2014! 2023 marks my 10th show!
At first, I would attend the show and come back and talk about it only the local Cleveland NPR radio shows The Sound of Applause & The Sound of Ideas – and once an episode of the PBS TV show Ideas.
In 2019, I started adding to my coverage by posting 1-minute clips to Instagram (and then compilations of those clips to YouTube). It is literally hours and hours of footage and due to Instagram’s limitation (at the time) I became King of the One Minute Pitch!
For 2023 things are going to be slightly different, the short format (and slightly longer format) videos I create are more suited to TikTok than to Instagram. I have a much larger and more interactive audience on TikTok and also you can view the videos from a desktop without having an account. I will create YouTube compilations when the show is over.
A message to companies looking for coverage:
Thank you for visiting this page or reaching out via email.
As you cane imagine, I am getting inundated with requests for meetings.
For CES2023, I will be attending Unveiled & Showstoppers (not Pepcom) and I might even stop by your booth (at one of the events or on the show floor) and do one of my famous “1 minute(ish) videos”.
Do you have a product on the market that my viewers can actually purchase (or is imminent)?
Are you sending out review units, if so when and for how long?
If you have a product that you want featured or reviewed in a video please send to:
2473 E124 Street
Cleveland, Ohio 44120
If you want a copy of a video I made about your company or product to post on your social media (or are a member of the media looking for a copy of a video), please email me (email@example.com) and I can provide it for you directly.
If you want a custom video of me demonstrating or pitching your product, please email me for details.
One important note: I’ve been doing this for YEARS, and the lack of follow through from PR and Marketing firms is astounding. They often reach out before the show or we have a conversation during the show but there is little or no follow-up after the show, please let’s make 2023 different!
