High demand for CES Asia
Just three months after the close of CES Asia 2016, more than 100 companies from eight countries, regions and territories have signed up to exhibit at CES Asia 2017.
Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), and co-produced by Intex Shanghai, CES Asia features ground-breaking technology from international businesses across all industries in the Asian market. Ten months out from CES Asia 2017, approximately 13,700 gross square meters or 6,800 net square meters, of exhibit space have been sold, up more than 22 per cent over this time last year. Notable companies from China, Finland, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, the U.S. and other nations will use one of Asia’s fastest growing technology shows to position themselves to new audiences and launch product into the rapidly growing Asian market.
“CES Asia is building a reputation as the place where ground-breaking technology debuts in China, and where global tech leaders come together for cross-market partnerships and to dissect the future of the industry in the Asian marketplace,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association. “We built this show because of market demand and it’s exciting to see the organic growth of such an ideal setting for tech powerhouses and startups alike to launch innovation into the critical Asian market, create partnerships and reinforce their brands.”
CES Asia draws an international array of senior-level buyers, distributors, manufacturers, engineers, product designers, CTOs, CIOs and investment managers to experience the latest global innovation and interact with industry leaders from some of the largest brands in China and around the world. For 2017, the show is expected to draw more than 30,000 attendees and 1,100 media to cover an estimated 450 exhibiting companies showcasing innovation across 18 product categories, including major growth categories such as drones, the Internet of Things (IoT) and virtual reality (VR).
