The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) was held earlier this month in Las Vegas. It’s one of the largest, most innovative technology trade shows in the world. Last year’s show welcomed 4,000 exhibiting companies, 184,000 attendees, and 1,200 speakers.
CES a conference where global technology takes center stage, highlighting innovation in all areas of life, from sports to automotive, health and wellness, artificial intelligence, media and entertainment, manufacturing, and more. Just about every part of our daily lives are influenced by technology, and CES is the place where the latest products and offerings are debuted.
As mentioned, thousands of influential speakers and exhibitors were in attendance again this year. Companies like Comcast, YouTube, Intel, Ford Motor Company, Hulu, Time Warner Co., Amazon, Carnival Cruise Line, Spotify, Sleep Number, Samsung, Google, and many, many more were represented. The list is far too great (and impressive) to keep going here. This year, some 900 startups were represented as well. Should be exciting to see what launches this year!
CES started 50 years ago in New York City, and today people come in from all over the world to see what technology is in development or launching soon. Although you may have seen some highlights from CES in the news, this month on the blog I’d like to go more in depth on some of the new technology, and what it will mean for us and our businesses. Stay tuned for some exciting stuff!
