The third annual CES Asia concluded today, surpassing last year's show in attendance and exhibit space, reinforcing the event as the premier showcase for the consumer technology industry in the Eastern Hemisphere. Since its launch in 2015, CES Asia has doubled in size as more than 450 exhibiting companies from 22 countries, regions and territories exhibited across a show floor that covered a record 40,000 gross square meters, expanding from four exhibit halls in 2016 to five this year. CES Asia is owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and co-produced by Shanghai Intex Exhibition Co., Ltd. (Shanghai Intex). CES Asia will return to Shanghai June 13-15, 2018.
"CES Asia 2017 rocked!" said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. "It was a five senses experience with eye-popping stands full of innovative products, enticing sounds and immersive entertainment. It exuded excitement and optimism.
"CES Asia attracts market leaders from the entire tech ecosystem, from drones and fashion, to sports and cars, to VR and AR, to machine learning to connectivity and, of course, self-driving cars. The packed show floor was abuzz with 'smarter everything', reflecting an era where technology is changing our world for the better. If it was tech innovation in Asia, it was represented on the show floor and in our conference sessions here this week."
