CES 2019 – Exhibitor News & Product Launches

Catch all the latest and greatest news from the world of smart home tech and innovations showcased at CES 2019 – the largest and most influential consumer tech exhibition on the planet.  


All the latest consumer technologies are first showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) – an annually held trade show organized by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) in the month of January every year at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The show has an annual attendance of 182,000, making it one of the most popular trade fairs out there.

Interestingly, the electronics trade fair started in June 1967 as a spin-off from the Chicago Music Show. Thereafter it slowly gained popularity. From 1978 to 1994, the show was held twice a year. Once in January known as Winter Consumer Electronics Show (WCES) in Las Vegas and then in June known as Summer Consumer Electronics Show (SCES) in Chicago. Over time, the summer CES lost popularity and from 1998 onwards, the trade fair was held only once annually.       

Like all times, the 51st edition of the electronics show will be at the center stage for global consumer electronics technologies introduced to the marketplace that’ll change the complexion of future living. The show will be held from January 8-11 showcasing the latest home tech innovations that’ll shape the future living.
