Sure it may be cold and dark outside here in Canada, but the sun is shining on Las Vegas as gadget lovers around the world gather starting today for the world’s largest consumer technology trade show: CES 2011.
This year our Connected Rogers Magazine team will be on the show’s floor hunting for the latest gadgets, accessories and tech trends for the year ahead. The magazine’s coverage will include regular blog posts with pics and videos of all the action. You can find it on their website here. They’re also sending regular tweets via their @connectedmag Twitter account.
Just how big is CES? According to reports, 140,000 people will attend the show that comprises roughly 1.8-million square feet of exhibit space. There will be 2,900 companies showcasing the latest gear, software and technology.
In addition to Rogers products and services, Connected Rogers Magazine also covers non-Rogers technology, lifestyle and entertainment. And while we may not carry everything you read about from the show, attending events like CES provides us with a first glimpse at what’s hot among consumers – and what’s next.
What are you looking forward to hearing about from CES 2011? Have you ever been to the event?
