The 2015 International CES has come to an end and as we predicted, this year's most popular exhibits involved health and sensors. 170,000 industry professionals had the opportunity to see over 3,600 exhibitors, including 375 startups during the four-day event in Las Vegas. The show featured three main areas:
- Tech West: Sands Expo, The Venetian, The Palazzo, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore at Wynn featured fitness and health, the Internet of things, sensors and other high-growth technologies like 3D printing, smart watches and robotics. Most of the products we selected as our Best of CES were found here. Video below of these exciting innovations.
- Tech East: The Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center, the Westgate Las Vegas and the Renaissance Las Vegas hosted innovations in audio, automotive electronics, gaming, video, wireless devices and digital imaging. Here is where we saw the Mercedes-Benz F015, a driverless Mercedes with no carbon emissions and four swiveling chairs that allow people in the car to face each other.
- C Space: New for 2015, C Space at the ARIA hotel was the hub for brand marketers, advertising agencies, digital publishers and social networks.
"Our strategy of creating diverse CES experiences for our attendees appears to have succeeded. Our attendees were able to find focused technology areas while traveling easily and seamlessly among venues," said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, International CES and corporate business strategy.
