Arlington, Va., August 24, 2006 – The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES®) today announced that it has partnered with Robotics Trends to develop the second annual CES Robotics TechZone at the 2007 International CES, the world’s largest tradeshow for consumer technology. The 2007 International CES will be held January 8-11, 2007 in Las Vegas and will celebrate the show’s 40th anniversary.
As part of the focus on robotics technology at the 2007 International CES, Robotics Trends will produce a conference program exploring the rapidly expanding consumer robotics market, as well as a Robotics TechZone at the Sands Expo and Convention Center which will feature the latest consumer robotics products and technologies.
“The 2007 International CES is the perfect place to showcase the latest and greatest products in the exciting and growing consumer robotics market,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president of conferences and events for the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA®), the producer of the International CES. “For the past 40 years, CES has been the launch pad of hot technologies. We look forward to continuing this great legacy by showcasing cool new robotics products at CES’ Innovations Plus at the Sands.”
“We are delighted to once again work with the International CES to bring robotics to the world’s largest consumer technology event,” notes Dan Kara, president of Robotics Trends. “The newly emergent consumer robotics market offers ground floor opportunities for all members of the consumer electronics value chain – from electronics suppliers, developers and manufacturers, to retailers, resellers, OEMs and distributors. The inclusion of the Robotics TechZone within the International CES will bring this exciting, new market to a worldwide audience of consumer electronics industry leaders.”
