In just a few days it is time for the CES conference in one of the most colourful cities of America: Las Vegas. We catch up on what you can expect from the biggest consumer electronics show.
CES is the world’s gathering place for all of those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years — the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.
Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, it attracts the world’s business leaders and pioneering thinkers.
Last year over a 175k people visited the show whilst over four thousand companies exhibited. The expectations are no less for this year.
Here are a few topics to look out for if your attending the event:
5G networks: Since the first commercial launches of the fifth generation of mobile networks in late 2018, 5G networks have continued to be rolled out all over the world. The top countries with 5G include South Korea, the United Kingdom, Germany, and the United States and 2020 is expected to be the year other countries make their switch.
Sustainability, resilience and smart cities. Sustainability was one of the most searched terms in 2019 and 2020 doesn’t look to be any different. It’s predicted environmental science, smart cities and resilience will be hot topics.
Robotics & Machine Intelligence: Robotics, drones, artificial intelligence. AI and robotics are becoming more intertwined, resulting in more capabilities, new applications, and the need for greater understanding. This is expected to be a big theme in the upcoming conference.
Advertising, Entertainment & Content: Entertainment, content, Marketing and advertising. For businesses, marketing is crucial to generate sales. The last decade has seen marketing shifting from traditional channels to social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. But with Facebook usage in decline, social media is expected to be a hot topic. Will Instagram continue to see its popularity surge? Which platforms will emerge as winners?
