CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

Reading time ( words)

Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. With more than 175,000 industry professionals (61,000 international travelers), the event infrastructure gets exercised fully by CES. 

Why is this show important to our industry? Because this event showcases OEMs. This is the current state of the industry for the products that our industry helps to turn into finished products. That’s why I-Connect007 is here, walking the miles on the exhibition floor.

While I-Connect007 may lead the electronics manufacturing trade press by covering CES every year, we’re far from alone. In 2019, CES generated 226,273 media mentions and 900,000 social media mentions. For example, the media lounge at the Las Vegas Convention Center uses four individual ballrooms to hold it all. I’ve flown commercial flights out of airports smaller than the media lounge. 

Understandably, the amount of news and information to process and print is simply staggering; we can’t even bring you all of the news directly related to electronics manufacturing.

Over the week, I-Connect007 Technical Editor Dan Feinberg and I will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more. 

Watch the I-Connect007 Daily Newsletter all week for our daily dispatches from the CES show floor and surrounding events.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.
