For those of us in the consumer electronics industry, as we speed toward the end of 2019, your attention inevitably begins to turn to….that’s right, CE Week 2020! Held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York on June 10-11, 2020, CE Week provides the ideal mid-year look at what’s happening in the consumer tech space, as well as an excellent opportunity to network and hear from some of the most innovative minds in the sector.
CE Week is produced in cooperation with IFA, the world’s most significant technology trade show that will take place September 4-9, 2020 in Berlin, Germany. The annual CE Week event is the premier North American business venue for connecting key decision makers, retail buyers and sellers in consumer technology.
As was the case in 2019, the Connected Design Home is expected to take center stage at the 2020 CE Week, showcasing the latest products, services and design trends for the connected/smart home.
“CE Week in New York is such a highly anticipated event for people looking for the latest in smart home technology,” said Toni Sabatino, president, NKBA Manhattan Chapter, regarding the 2019 event. “We are delighted to see kitchen and bath product manufacturers join CE Week’s Connected Design Home and showcase their products that can be integrated into the home.”
There will also be a strong presence of women in tech, based on the recently formed partnership between Tech Up For Women and CE Week, as the two events are teaming to enhance their membership, conference programs and events overall. Tech Up For Women is an event and engagement platform designed to enable women in all job functions to develop technology skills needed to pursue successful careers in the field.
"We are delighted to offer our membership the opportunity to attend CE Week so they can hear directly from industry leaders about the latest trends and opportunities in consumer technology," said Dawn Pratt, founder of Tech Up For Women. The 2020 Tech Up for Women will be held November 17, also at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.
You can also expect an exciting keynote speaker line-up and a full, two-day conference program covering current trends in CE retail, what direction the latest consumer electronic innovation is taking the industry in, the TV Shoot-Out competition and plenty of the hottest CE products on display throughout the show floor.
