Speaker Guidelines

  • Speakers cover their own travel expenses and hotel accommodations.
  • Press and analysts have full access to conference sessions. There are no specific press services offered for speakers.
  • Standard CES conference program includes: interview, fireside chats, presentations, and moderated panel discussions.
  • Speakers are responsible for providing their own laptops for presentations with connections for VGA, DVI or HDMI. Equipment cannot be ordered on-site. If using a Mac, tablet or smartphone, notify the CES Conferences Team with the type of device so we can coordinate the appropriate adapters.
