Last week, the great and good of the technology industry descended on Las Vegas to check out what’s new in consumer electronics. This year broke all records, not just for inflated hotel room rates but for sheers size. CES now ranks as the largest business trade show and one of the top five automotive events in the US with more than 2.7 million square feet of exhibits, over 200,000 visitors including 7,000 from the media, more than 900 startups, and the world first 100 drone autonomous flight.
“Large and small companies from around the globe came to Las Vegas to launch technologies that will change our world,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association (CTA). “From 5G to smart cities, digital health, AI, VR/AR and more, the technologies that will shape the future of our planet and lives for the better were on display across the show floor.”
