The official list of journalists not going to CES 2015
The holidays are creeping up on us and that means latkes, eggnog and that companies are working like rapid fire to reach out to journalists about CES 2015 which will take place in Las Vegas right after the New Year. After the success of our SXSW list of journalists not attending we put together the official list of journalists not attending CES early next year.
Make sure to avoid flooding the inboxes of these journalists.

I have a Quick Step defined in Outlook to send a "Thanks, but I'm not going to CES" and then delete the CES pitch email. All with one click.— Ed Bott (@edbott) December 4, 2014

Also, here are journalists who are going to CES but probably don't want to be pitched.
John Colucci, Social Media Editor, Endgadget
It's cute how every CES pitch email acts as if its the only one I've seen, ever.— John Colucci (@johncolucci) December 16, 2014
If you're a journalist and you'd like to be added to this list to save your inbox from pitches about CES and other upcoming events that you won't be attending, email the author.
