CES® 2016 opened its doors today spanning the largest exhibit floor in the show’s 49-year history, with 2.4 million net square feet of exhibit space and featuring more than 3,600 companies, including a record 500 startups. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM, formerly the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, CES 2016 runs through Saturday, January 9, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Traditionally DOK-ING visits CES, usually through the eyes of its owner, Mr. Vjekoslav Majetić who is always trying to be aware and familiar with the latest issues in consumer electronics. Being a kind of brainstorming place and time for innovators, CES proves to be more than an overview of the global market, but also a source of new ideas for the core businesses of DOK-ING.
The CES Unveiled featured more than 160 exhibiting companies, including a record-breaking 52 startups from Eureka Park – the dedicated CES exhibit area for early-stage companies. Exhibitors offered a sneak preview of products launching at the show to more than 2,000 media, covering the latest in sensors, 3D printing, the Internet of Things, wearables, virtual reality and robotics all captured in the official highlight reel.
Companies big and small use CES to introduce the latest innovation to the global market. Major product announcements continued during Tuesday’s CES Press Day, which featured 28 exhibitor press conferences kicking off and setting the tone for a week that will see some 20,000 products launched.
“CES kicks off as the global platform where emerging technology meets the marketplace. This seems to be a candy store where candies are mind-blowing innovation that is truly improving the human experience,” said president and CEO of the Consumer Technology Association. “From robotics, 3D printing and unmanned systems to automotive tech, wearables and beyond, our world is changing as technology connects us all and works to solve the impossible. It is incredible we get to bring together so many industry visionaries, influencers and entrepreneurs this week at CES to showcase how tech is changing the world.”
