February 12, 2020 Meeting

Highlights of CES 2020

Andy Marken returns to SPAUG to review the highlights and the best new products of the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show.

If it wasn’t at CES this year it probably isn’t worth considering -nearly 4500 companies from over 160 countries, over 100 educational/informational sessions covering everything was there this January.  Think of the show as the UN and Davos of consumer technology. Lots of talk about 5G and AI but you couldn’t touch it, play with it so they’re just nice talking points.  Andy will return again to cover the highlights of smart everything – cars, TVs, toys, games, homes, cities, streaming content and more. 

No, he didn’t cover all 20 football fields of exhibit space but still there was plenty of really good stuff and lots of stuff that won’t be back next year (hint – we’ll try not to let you know about those so as not to build false hopes).  All we can say is that the show keeps getting bigger/better, attracting companies from every business segment around the globe. But as in recent years and did all the hard leg work for you to ferret out the good stuff! If you heard rumors about stuff and he doesn’t mention it during the meeting…sorry!  However listen hard and come with your questions…he’ll fill in the blanks!
