What is CES?

The 2012 International CES otherwise known as CES is the world’s largest technology trade show.  What does CES stand for?  Consumer Electronics Show of course!  Attended by over 140,000 people including 5,000 analysts and member of the media, it is both the show to have new products on display for consumers and launch new products for the press and analysts to write about.  While CES started as geek-fest for those “in” tech, it was quickly a darling of the press as the place to see what’s new in consumer electronic gadgets.  From entertainment, gaming and mobile to medical and security, CES is the launchpad for many new products each year.  It’s also the place for large buyers to shop and determine what will be on the store shelves for the rest of the year.
