CES 2017 Preview: 19 Booths We Can’t Wait to Stop By at the Sands Expo Center (Halls A – D)
Let's face it, you can't come to CES and simply skip over the Sands, especially if you have an interest in up and coming categories like smarthomes, wearables, 3D printing, fitness or robotics. If you're on the lookout for what to buy next year, the Sands is the expo center to be at.
Of course, it's worth just stopping by to see the smart houses that get built right on the show floor just in time for the show. If last year proved anything, it's that building an entire neighborhood on an expo floor isn't out of the question. We can only imagine what it'll look like this year.
In the meantime though, we're making a list of must-see places. Take a look at a some of the booths that have topped our list for our visit to the Sands at CES.
