See the Newest Tech at CES 2018
As tech luminaries, executives and everyday consumers make the trek to CES, the latest innovations and ideas in consumer technology will once again take center stage. Attendees will be treated to exhibitors — from promising startups to the some of the world's biggest brands — introducing the next generation of tech gadgets. The exhibits include new electronics ranging from drones, and virtual reality to 3D printing, smart home electronics and more, each aiming to make modern life more convenient and exciting than ever. Part industry tradeshow, part futuristic technology showcase, CES plays host to individuals and companies from across the globe, including manufacturers, suppliers, investors, government officials, advertisers, marketers and the media.
History of CES
Beginning in 1967 with 250 exhibitors and 17,500 attendees, CES has grown into an annual celebration of tech invention, investment and entrepreneurship with more than 3,000 exhibitors and 100,000 attendees. Each year the event is hosted by the Consumer Electronics Association in Las Vegas, though the first CES was held in New York City, and semi-annual shows have sometimes taken place in Chicago and elsewhere. As the show's popularity has burgeoned, media attention has also grown, helping make CES the largest electronics show in the United States. Many important players in the tech industry have given keynote speeches, including several by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. Over the years, some notable products have been unveiled at CES, including: the video cassette recorder (VCR); the compact disc (CD); the Nintendo Entertainment System; the HDTV; the digital video disc (DVD); the Microsoft Xbox gaming console; and the Intel® Core i7™ computer processor.
