Dates announced for 10th annual CE Week
The consumer technology community’s mid-summer tech trade show, CE Week, has its official date. NAPCO Media, the company behind the event (and this here website), announced that CE Week 2016 will return to the Metropolitan Pavilion and Altman Buildings in New York City from June 22-24.
Entering its tenth year, CE Week serves as the summer tech industry event where companies can get their fall product lineups unveiled to the tech community. Last year’s event attracted more than 3,000 qualified market influencers, including trade affiliates, buyers, tech influencers, bloggers, investors, educators, and more.
And on top of the product unveils, CE Week packs a busy events schedule with 200 exhibits, networking events, conference sessions, and press conferences. The show creates “an open tent for exhibitors and speakers to showcase in a variety of engaging formats,” NAPCO Media explained in a statement.
CE Week is supported by a number of partners, including C3 Group, Showstoppers, and Living in Digital Times, who bring an expertise in categories like connected cars, new tech, and wearables respectively. The event also includes special showcases for startups, hands-on seminars for bloggers, special breakfasts and luncheons to develop thought leadership, opportunities to participate in the CE Week TV broadcast, and a kickoff tech experience at B&H Photo.
CE Week 2016 will see the addition of getgeeked, which will give participating companies the ability to engage passionate, hard-to-reach consumers whose shared opinions are having a “significant impact on the success—or failure—of today’s new tech products and services.
“Companies recognize the importance of the summer time frame as the most important moment to engage their customers,” Eric Schwartz, President/CRO, Consumer Technology, NAPCO Media, said in the statement. “In the coming weeks we’ll be announcing conference schedules and additional partner programs focused on making CE Week 2016 the premiere destination for the tech industry.”
