CEA Previews January’s CES
CEA president and CEO Gary Shapiro said at the organization’s Industry Forum Tuesday that the upcoming 2008 CES – besides all the customary bells and whistles attendees have come to expect at the annual Las Vegas convocation – will feature a bevy of new programs that focus on content, cars and technology development in emerging countries.
The show will also have two panels – one after the other – trained on the subject of the analog-to-digital TV conversion and on the industry’s DTV coupon program, on Monday, Jan. 7.
The show is expected to attract 2,700 exhibitors to 1.7 million square feet of floor space and 25,000 international attendees from 140 countries. “Our long-term strategy is to provide excitement and value within the show,” Shapiro said.
