Consumer Electronics Show – The Global Stage for Innovation

CES is the world’s gathering place for all those who thrive on 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.

CES 2019 had 175,000 attendees and over 4,500 exhibitors. This year will certainly exceed these numbers. Lidar technology will be front and center largely with what CES is calling vehicle tech, but the applications will go well beyond that including drones, security, energy, robotics, Smart Cities, entertainment and much more.

Better have a plan for tackling this monster show.
