CES 2015

19th January 2015

The Consumer Electronics Show

If you don’t count the time that my father took me to the CES in New York City during the 60’s, I’ve been consistently attending the annual Consumer Electronics Show each January. Other than the one or two shows that I’ve missed since 1982, I’ve been able to leave the cold and snow of Michigan to spend a few days in the warmth and sun of southern Nevada.

For most of these past 33 years I attended CES as an exhibitor. As a publisher in the computer industry, we used CES to promote and market our lines of software and books. Awhile back however, we sold our interests in computer publishing to follow other opportunities.

So for the last several years, I’ve attended CES as an industry member. I still have a deep interest in the myriad of new electronic gadgets. I want to stay current with the neat, innovative devices that are making their initial appearances.

The recession of 2007-2009 had a profound effect when attendance plummeted. Slowly, the electronics industry has recovered. Last year’s show 2014 was a record-breaking one with 160,000 visitors.

This year’s attendees (to the right) were just as anxious to visit the 3,600 exhibitors who occupied 2.2 million square feet of space.

CES reports that 2015 was another record-breaker with more than 170,000 attendees including 45,000 foreign visitors.

Many exhibitors spared little to promote their brand.

In the next few days, I’ll be preparing several detailed articles covering some of the interesting products that exhibitors showed me during my visit to Consumer Electronics Show 2015.
