CES2016, an internationally renowned electronics and technology trade show, gathering major companies and industry professionals will be held on 6-9th of January at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The International CES (Consumer Electronics Show®), is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. The first CES was held in June 1967 in New York City. It was a spinoff from the Chicago Music Show, which until then had served as the main event for exhibiting consumer electronics. The CES 2016 will be held on 6-9th of January at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Not open to the public, the Consumer Electronics Association – sponsored show typically hosts previews of products and new product announcements. CES rose to prominence after a rival show, COMDEX, was canceled.
“With the growth of the consumer technology industry and the parallel growth of the International CES comes an increase in the qualified registrant base for our show. While these individuals are qualified industry professionals, we are reaching space capacity and simply can’t accommodate every qualified individual to our show,” said Karen Chupka, CEA senior vice president, International CES and corporate business strategy.
Why Should You attend CES?
The 2015 CES was a record breaking year. More than 170,000 attendees from across the globe gathered amongst 2.2 million net square feet of exhibit space. That’s why CES is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology.
“We take seriously our efforts to make sure CES attendees have a positive experience. Enhanced credentialing procedures will enable us to ensure that qualified attendees can participate in our show and conduct business while providing a high-quality experience for all. These efforts also will allow us to improve some of the logistical and operational challenges that come with producing and attending such a large event.”
