Global stage for innovation celebrates 50th anniversary 

LAS VEGAS, NV—Registration is now open for CES® 2017 where the global stage for innovation will celebrate its 50th anniversary. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, 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. 

PrintREGISTRATION: 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 general attendees, registration is $100 through December 20 and will increase to $300 on December 21. Registration for approved and credentialed media is always free. More than 25 locations throughout Las Vegas are designated for badge pickup, including key locations at McCarran International Airport, official show hotels and exhibit venues. 

New for CES 2017, all registrants will be asked to provide their date of birth (DOB) during the registration process. As part of our enhanced security measures this is a required registration field and must be completed to fully process a CES registration submission. Your DOB information will help us keep the show manageable and safe and it will not be shared with third parties, other than government agencies charged with protecting our guests’ security. For 2018, we also plan to require a photo as part of the registration process. 

WHEN: The show will run Thursday, January 5 through Sunday, January 8 in Las Vegas, NV. Media events kick off at Noon, Tuesday, January 3 at Mandalay Bay.
