Organizers Expecting To Set Several CES Records This Week
The '13 International Consumer Electronics Show opens today in Las Vegas, and organizers are again expecting this week to set several event records, even with several major companies, including ESPN and Microsoft, decreasing their CES profiles. The Consumer Electronics Association, which produces the event, has sold an unprecedented 1.87 million square feet of event space and last year's all-time attendance of 156,153 will be challenged. Brand Affinity Technologies is providing photo services for this year's show.
ESPN does not have a CES booth after having one last year, but it once again held an invitation-only party last night for several hundred industry executives to watch the BCS Championship Game in 3D.
