It’s time yet again for the biggest event in the consumer technology sector: the Consumer Electronics Show 2012! Beginning Sunday with the annual kickoff event in Las Vegas, the week will be packed with press conferences, showcases and, of course, the actual show floor itself where manufacturers from all over the country and the world will unveil the latest and greatest in technology for consumers (and let’s be honest, businesses).
And even though the show floor doesn’t open officially until Tuesday morning, the staff at PrinterComparison couldn’t wait to share some of what we are looking forward to in Vegas this year!
The Press Conferences
Ok, no one really likes the amount of people that get stuffed inside of one Venetian convention room, but the bombshell announcements usually make the suffering worth it in the end. At CES 2011, six printer manufacturers revealed major hardware introductions and we saw more software announcements than we could count.
Already this year, Brother unveiled four new digital color devices that offer blazing fast color print speeds and we can’t wait to see – and share – what’s next!
Not every vendor can afford a huge fancy booth on the main stage at the Las Vegas Convention Center and even the ones that can realize the value of having a smaller arena to show off new products to their beloved press corp (and others). Enter the showcases!
Every year we hit two of the biggest in Digital Experience (aka Pepcom) and ShowStoppers. In 2012, we expect to see some of the brightest stars in the consumer print industry at these events including: Brother, Canon, Epson, Kodak, HP, Samsung and more! Oh, and did I mention the theme for Digital Experience is Western?
The CES Show Floor
It’s the grand daddy of them all! The CES 2012 show floor at the Las Vegas Convention Center promises to be the most exciting part of the week with three main exhibit halls – North, Central and South – as well as flow over exhibits taking place at the Venetian and the Las Vegas Hilton.
The companies that exhibit spare no expense on their booths and compete every year on who has the biggest, flashiest and most unique booths – and that’s not even considering who has the coolest new technology!
This year, we’ll be visiting with Canon, Kodak, Polaroid, Samsung and more so make sure you come back to check out what crazy and exciting booths – and products – they’ll be showing off in 2012!
