Panel Discussions

CES 2018 Ends But Discussions Continue

CES 2018 was an amazing event with everything from expert panel discussions to very small startups to the mega players in transportation, robotics, AI, smart cities, entertainment and so much more.  The event had a bumpy start with heavy rains on opening day and a blown transformer as a result of the rain. This plunged the North and Central Halls into darkness. But after a couple of hours, the show rebound to become one of the best ever CES events. The date has already been set for next year’s CES.  CES 2019 will be held from January 8th – 11th. Its never too early to make plans for attending this technology show.

As you probably know CES is not open to the public.  You either need to be an exhibitor or a buyer or marketer or member of the press in order to gain admittance.  But one thing CES is really good about is providing a lot of info on the show’s events so you can get insight into what’s happening in various tech sectors without attending the show.

Panel Discussions

CES routinely posts videos of panel discussions and keynotes on various technology topics that include panel discussions from industry experts. They have conveniently made these videos available for all to view in one place.  This influential event brings all of the technology segments into one place. Even if you attended CES 2018, the show is simply too massive to cover in its entirety. If you missed any of these check them out. As these technologies develop further the discussions will continue.
