The 2010 International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, will be held in Las Vegas, January 7-10, 2010.
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) expects 110,000 attendees at this year’s show, with 2,500 exhibitors showing off the newest technology gadgets and consumer electronics. More than 250 educational sessions will take place over four days, showcasing the knowledge of 800 expert speakers.
The “UP NEXT at CES: Creativity, Content and Cash” program as well as the SuperSessions will be broadcast live online.
Taking place on Thursday, January 7 and Friday, January 8, the special series of sessions aims to cut through the new media hype and present real-world strategies for monetizing media content across the most promising platforms – from smartphones to broadband-enabled HDTVs. Keynotes include Stephen Chao, veteran TV executive and President of wonderhowto.com, who will analyze the relative profitability of “traditional” and digital media using real-world revenue figures and Ben Silverman, the Emmy-winning executive producer of The Office, Ugly Betty and The Biggest Loser, who will reveal for the first time the plans for his new company Electus.
the lineup of CES conference SuperSessions being streamed by Stickam.com includes industry experts from leading technology and retail companies such as Best Buy, Kodak and Pandora. Highlighting the agenda is Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski, who will join CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro on Friday, January 8 in the Las Vegas Convention Center for a discussion about the FCC’s competition policy, wireless spectrum scarcity, broadband and other issues impacting the consumer electronics industry. Additionally, the popular Last Gadget Standing competition will also be streamed for viewers not in attendance.
