About CES

CES® Is the Global Stage for Innovation

CES® maintains that it is the ‘…most influential tech event in the world — the proving ground for breakthrough technologies and global innovators.’ The CES Las Vegas, Nevada destination is where the world's biggest brands do business and meet new partners, and the sharpest innovators hit the stage. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, CES features every aspect of the tech sector.

The first CES took place in New York City in June 1967. Since then, thousands of products are announced, displayed, and demonstrated at the yearly show. January, 2021, is the first CES presented entirely on-line. The registration requirements for the press, retailers, and exhibitors remained unchanged from the past in-person attendees. CES it is not open to the public. Last year it featured 4000+ exhibitors. For 2021, all 1,800+ exhibitors were on-line. (CES 2022 is planning to return to an in-person show.)

For this BAS-CES report, the guests have viewed multiple video presentations, and often YouTube cinemas to help you comprehend what is in-line for your home, refrigerator, video, or audio nirvana. It wasn’t easy compiling the menu for this presentation. Often, the manufacturer’s video would stop during presentation or the number of links to follow failed or exceeded our patience.
