Ballmer Keynote to Open CES
A keynote address from Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer will once again open International CES in 2012, the Consumer Electronics Association said Wednesday.
The speech, the first keynote announced for the 2012 show, will take place at the Venetian at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 9, the night before the CES show floor opens.
“We are pleased to welcome Microsoft back to the CES keynote stage,” Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CEA, said. “From mobile to desktop to gaming and beyond, Microsoft has a significant impact on all aspects of the consumer technology industry, and Steve Ballmer's keynote is a great way to kick off the exciting 2012 International CES."
