Since 1967, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has been a gathering place for global business leaders, innovators, and companies to showcase and learn about new and emerging consumer technologies.
The event features more than 4,500 exhibiting companies and 1,000 speakers, allowing the more than 175,000 attendees to engage with new technology and the people who developed it in a variety of exciting ways. CES features consumer technologies across a wide range of categories, including digital health, gaming, sustainability, and entertainment. And while we’re eager to learn about the new products in every category, it should be no surprise that the smart home tech excites us most of all.
Smart home events and exhibitions take place every day of the show, running the gamut of topics. For instance, there’s the Smart Homes Influence Real Estate exhibit, which discusses how installing smart home technology can considerably increase your home’s resale value. It also covers buyers' most coveted technologies and the ways that builders and realtors are responding to the trend.
Additionally, there's a heavy focus on the ways in which smart home technology can improve our health. At Can Smart Homes Improve Our Health, for example, attendees will learn about how homes are transitioning from a place you need to take care of to a place that takes care of you. The FUTURE: In-Home Sleep Clinics and Heart-Health Advancements expands on this idea, discussing how companies like Omron are harnessing cutting-edge technology to track sleep cycles and heart health.
But as more consumers are smartening up their home’s design, giving devices information as vulnerable as their personal health data, there's been an increase in concerns about just how private home technology is. The Privacy and Security: Protecting Consumers event addresses many of these concerns, exploring the latest privacy solutions and what’s being done to ensure that consumers’ data is private and protected.
And these are just a handful of smart home topics being covered at the show. The abundant events also cover the latest smart home artificial intelligence innovations, IoT solutions, sustainability developments, and more.
CES 2020 takes place in Las Vegas from Jan 7-10, but it’s not open to the general public—only professionals affiliated with consumer technology are invited to attend. If you’re not consumer tech-affiliated, though, you’ll still want to keep an eye on the news surrounding the event because it will no doubt unveil some of the newest, most exciting, and widely applicable technology on the market.
