Plus, we will be doing a Digital LA meetup at the Tues Omnia (Steve Aoki) official CES Opening Party, and will be giving out comp VIP wristbands so you can get in the shorter VIP line and skip the cluster at the door. If you have a CES badge or Dreamland badge, get a VIP wristband from our founder Kevin Winston in the red shirt on Tuesday 10-11p at the Vista Lounge for Omnia. Then inside the clubs, check out the VR demos, and look for Kevin who will be taking photos of Digital LA attendees. Make sure you find the VR demos on the roof patio and the Heart lounge.
