Arlington, VA—The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) announced that the International Gateway TechZone has sold out in its new location, the Venetian, for the 2013 International CES. Owned and produced by CEA, the 2013 International CES is the world’s largest trade show for consumer electronics and is scheduled to run January 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The International Gateway is designed to allow attendees to expand their global networks at CES. The TechZone will feature more than 460 exhibitors in Hall D of the Venetian, showcasing innovative technologies and products from international destinations. Products from China, Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan will be on display in the International Gateway. Due to the sellout in Hall D, International Gateway exhibits will also be found on Level 1 at the Venetian, in the Marco Polo ballroom.
The global reach of CES continues to expand: the 2012 show drew a record number of international attendees, and industry professionals from 150 countries made up nearly 23% of the 156,153 audited audience at the 2012 CES as the show attracted 35,734 attendees from outside the United States.
“The Venetian is a premier destination for the International Gateway at the 2013 CES, putting it in close proximity to CES keynotes, the Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase and 30% of this year’s TechZones,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, events and conferences for CEA. “The International Gateway will be in great company with the brand-new CloudBase3 TechZone, dedicated to the explosive expansion of cloud computing, and Eureka Park, which is returning for its second year 40% larger for budding entrepreneurs and startups.”
Other Venetian TechZones include: HigherEdTECH, Kids@Play, Mommy Tech and Sustainable Planet. There will also be 200 high-performance audio exhibitors with live demos in the the Venetian tower suites on levels 29-35.
