Owned and produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), International Consumer Electronics Show (International CES) is billed as the world’s gathering place for anyone and everyone in the business of consumer technologies. The International CES attracts the world’s business leaders and pioneering thinkers to a forum where the industry’s most relevant issues are addressed.

Each year, the International CES showcases more than 3,500 exhibitors, including manufacturers, developers and suppliers of consumer technology hardware, content, technology delivery systems and more. It also hosts a conference program with 250 sessions and more than 150,000 attendees from more than 140 countries.


It’s never been easier for customers to get what they want: from the Internet to social media to mobile and, of course, in-store, shoppers can purchase virtually anything they want anytime from anywhere. As a result of this multichannel approach, retailers now have access to a vast pool of customer data that hasn’t existed until fairly recently.

By analyzing this data, retailers can better predict consumer behavior and respond in real time to consumers’ individual needs.
