CES brings people from all over the world to Las Vegas for a global event of consumer technology and innovations.
The Consumer Electronic Show (CES), taking place Jan. 5 to 8, 2017, in Las Vegas, is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. CES reaches across markets, spans the globe and helps thousands of consumer technology businesses grow and thrive each year. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for more than 50 years. It has become the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.
As the largest hands-on event of its kind, CES features all aspects of the industry. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), it attracts the world’s business leaders and pioneering thinkers. CES 2016 was a record-breaking year. Total attendance reached 177,393 people gathered from around the world to experience technology innovation spanning 2.47 million net square feet of exhibit space. And next year will likely exceed that.
No other event gives companies this depth of exposure and reach, because there's no other event experience like CES. It's where business gets done: on the show floor, in and around the various conference program, in impromptu connections and in planned meetings and special events.
