Registration opens today for CES® 2017 where the global stage for innovation will celebrate its 50th anniversary. For 50 years CES has been the proving ground for innovators, unveiling breakthrough technologies and adapting as the definition of technology expands. Each year, products are introduced that challenge the status quo and raise the bar for future advancements. CES 2017 will feature more than 3,800 exhibiting companies showcasing innovation across 2.4 million net square feet, representing 24 product categories.

REGISTRATION: CES remains a trade-only event and is not open to the general public. Industry professionals are encouraged to register in advance to ensure quicker review time and processing on-site.

For 2018, we also plan to require a photo as part of the registration process.
