CES leaving Las Vegas?

Could this be the last CES in Las Vegas?  Jason Oxman, chief spokesman for the Consumer Electronics Association, told NBC Affiliate KBVC-TV drops a hint that the convention maybe looking at other places:

We’ve heard from our attendees, from our exhibitors … that the rates of hotels during the International CES are increasing out of proportion from what they think it should be,”

But don’t except a new venue next year, CES announces that they will be back next year.  New talks will begin about a new venue after this years CES and the start of next years event.  If a new venue is selected, it won’t be until 2010.  You know a way to make the better?  How about breaking CES into smaller events instead of one big event.
