2015 CES Asia: Something Major Coming from Shanghai

Allison Fried, Consumer Technology Association

We’re in Shanghai today for the second time in three months hosting a press event. Clearly this speaks to the critical importance of this market to the consumer electronics (CE) industry. CEA has expanded its international footprint for years now and we’re ready to launch a brand new tradeshow: The 2015 International CES Asia. With China a major driver of the global tech industry, the event will take place in Shanghai, a top global city for technology innovation. 

The show will run May 25-27 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center and will span roughly 8,500 net square meters of exhibit space with a major focus on connectivity and the Internet of Things.

We aim to have CES Asia be the premier event for the consumer tech industry that will showcase the full breadth and depth of innovation in the Asian marketplace. Attendees will have access to some of the largest brands from not only China, but around the world. We are specifically designing the show so that innovative companies from large economies like the U.S., China, Japan, South Korea and emerging countries in Southeast Asia can receive increased attention and gain a stronger foothold in the Chinese marketplace. We are excited to have key global businesses at the event to grow and reinforce their brands to CE industry executives, foreign buyers, media and a limited number of consumers from China.

As of today we’ve already received commitments from the following major companies to either exhibit, sponsor and/or attend the 2015 International CES Asia:

  • Amazon
  • Best Buy
  • Ford Motor Company
  • Fry’s Electronics
  • Gibson Brands
  • Hisense
  • IBM
  • Intel
  • Monster
  • Newegg
  • Radio Shack
  • Starpower
  • TCL
  • Woox
Registration will launch at the end of this year and booth sales will start in August. To keep up with the latest, bookmark
