The second annual CES Asia shattered all expectations with more than 425 exhibitors from 23 countries, regions and territories showcasing the full breadth and depth of innovation in the Asian marketplace. The halls of the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) were bustling with more than 32,000 attendees, including more than 1,000 members of the media. The show saw the introduction of exciting new products, collaborations and services and expanded the CES exhibitor base, as 57 percent of exhibitors did not exhibit at CES 2016. CES Asia 2016 brought some of the largest companies and thought leaders together in one location and affirmed itself as the platform for key global and domestic businesses to grow and reinforce brands in Asia. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, and co-produced by Intex Shanghai, CES Asia is Asia’s premier technology event and will return to Shanghai June 7-9, 2017.
“CES Asia 2016 set a new industry standard for tradeshows in the region with the show floor nearly doubling in size, informative and entertaining keynoters, and exhibitors making a major investment in their presence,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association. “The excitement and energy was tangible as companies launched ground-breaking innovations and announced new partnerships. It was clear business was being conducted onsite.”
