CES Sets New Attendance Record
Last week's International CES drew a new record of 153,000 attendees, the Consumer Electronics Association announced Friday. CEA had earlier announced a record number of exhibitors.
The numbers are unofficial; CEA typically releases an independent audit a few months after the event.
On the question of who will replace Microsoft as the lead keynote in the 2013 CES, the organizers are "currently reviewing requests for 2013 CES keynotes and will be making announcements in the coming months."
