Moreover, CES was recently held in January at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, the event typically hosts presentations of new products and technologies in the consumer electronics industry.

In that event, there were 17,500 attendees and over 100 exhibitors. The kickoff speaker was Motorola chairman Bob Galvin. Earlier from 1978 to 1994, CES was held twice each year. These shows were held in January in Las Vegas known for WCES (Winter Consumer Electronics Show) and others in June in Chicago, known as SCES (Summer Consumer Electronics Show). In 1998, the

exhibition of CES was changed to a once a year format with Las Vegas as the location. In Las Vegas, the show is one of the largest event taking up to 18 days to set up, run and break down.
