CES (Consumer Electronics Show)

Contributor(s): Wendy Schuchart

CES (International Consumer Electronics Show) is an annual technology conference for the consumer electronics industry. 

The first CES, held in 1967 in New York, attracted about 17,000 attendees. In 1978, the conference moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. As of this writing, it is considered to be the single largest trade show in the United States and is held each January. 

The convention is the launching point of approximately 20,000 new products every year. Many larger tech vendors, including Apple, Microsoft, Google and Amazon, have opted out of International CES in past years, but attendance continues to climb, despite the fact that the trade show is not open to the public. An attendee who was devoted to walking the show floor in 2013 would have walked an accumulated 15 miles of technology with over 150,000 other attendees.
