(Las Vegas, NV) From January 8-11, companies from all over the globe will attend the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to showcase the newest in consumer electronics to the market.
CES is the largest trade show in the world, with 11 official venues, more than 2.75 million net square feet of exhibit space and featuring 24 product categories and more than 25 Marketplaces. This year it is estimated that 182,000 people will attend the show with 4,400 companies exhibiting. The first CES was held in June 1967 in New York City.
The event will host over 1,000 speakers including the keynote by AT&T Communications CEO John Donovan.
CES is the world’s gathering place for all those in the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years — the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace. Launches have included such innovations as the iPod. The 2018 show included such inventions as the L’Oréal UV Sense, a tiny sensor capable of detecting ultraviolet exposure that’s small enough to wear comfortably on your fingernail. The sensor itself is battery-free and includes an NFC antenna, a temperature sensor, and a UV sensor. The device can store up to three months worth of data, passing information to the accompanying app whenever the wearer holds the device close to his or her smartphone. The app keeps track of your exposure levels and can provide tips for managing sun intake.
Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), CES attracts the world’s business leaders and pioneering thinkers.
