It’s been another year full of new ideas – Samsung’s shown off a ball, robots are still being shown with ever-greater levels of sophistication and audio products continue to grow in power and performance.
CES 2020 runs until Friday January 10, and even this far in we’re finding new and exciting changes to the industry we love so much. So, make sure you bookmark this page, as we’ll be updating it throughout CES 2020 with all the most important news, reviews and opinions from the show.
However, journalists started pouring into Las Vegas a few days before that to cover the news conferences that kicked off on Sunday, January 5 at 12pm PST and continue through Monday and Tuesday. It’s during this time that we’ll hear from leading consumer tech brands as they introduce us to new products at their keynote events.
Traditionally, the biggest of these keynotes happen on Monday, when LG, Samsung and Sony all hold their events, but some CES-related announcements will landed on Sunday night as news began to trickle out of the conference.
Fun fact: There are around 160,000 hotel rooms in Vegas and around 180,000 attendees each year. As you’d expect given those numbers, hotels fill up fast and the roads leading to the convention center get pretty crowded that week. Thankfully, the CTA (the company that puts on the show) offers free shuttles to almost all of the major hotels on the strip from the Convention Center, and has buses running to and from the Sands between 9 and 6 pm.
All that said, be prepared to walk. The convention center itself is massive and so is The Sands. Walking either can easily take between one and two hours, and you’ll easily rack up three to four miles on your pedometer along the way.
Appearing at the ‘Chief Privacy Officer Roundtable: What Do Consumers Want?’ discussion, Jane Horvath, Senior Director, Global Privacy at Apple will join Facebook, the Federal Trade Comission and Proctor & Gamble in discussing privacy in today’s online world.
So while Apple won’t be at CES in the same vein as rivals from Samsung and LG, launching a slew of new devices, it will be present in a way it hasn’t been for years.
Beyond that, confirmed exhibitors include Amazon, Canon, Facebook, Intel, LG, Lenovo, Microsoft, MSI, Nikon, Samsung, Sony and many, many more.
Now, admittedly, not everyone is there to show off new products. A fair majority of companies are there for business, while others are there to collect feedback and have a presence, rather than debut something new. That said, there will still be hundreds of new products making their debut this year in nearly every category.
