They Said It

“CES actually kicks off the new year with optimism and hope, and we gather the most important and enthusiastic innovators from around the world, the CXOs from the biggest companies and the startups together. They come from all over the world, all to Las Vegas, where we use three of the largest convention centers in the country, and multiple hotels. So they could get together in a very efficient way with the average person seeing, having about 29 meetings…They will not only have relationships, but they'll have discovery, serendipity. They will get together and verticals will see each other and realize that innovation is about putting together new ideas from across the spectrum in a way which serves mankind, serves industry, serves business, and just allows the economy to move forward with innovation driving it…”
Gary Shapiro (02:00)
“[T]he efficiency of being in one place in Las Vegas to meet and to partner to discuss ideas, there's nothing like it. I think that's something that we hear time and time again from exhibitors right now…the enthusiasm is incredible. We're seeing exhibitors sending out press releases, we're getting media inquiries. Our numbers look really strong…So I think there's a lot of general excitement for CES 2024, and we're excited to see everybody in Las Vegas.”
John T. Kelley (07:30)
“I think [CES 2024] is going to be remembered for how AI is transforming every single vertical of technology. And I think there's going to be so many unique stories and announcements that come out across the entire show and the tech ecosystem.”
