What’s new at CES this year for the custom/specialty audience?
A lot of people think “CES” and “new products,” but we also offer an assortment of educational programming and conference tracks and, of course, our keynotes. This is a chance to hear it from the experts!
For integrators and technology installers, we’ll be offering our latest TechHome Basic Training. So if you missed it at EHX Fall, here’s your chance to take the only training we presently offer focused on residential infrastructure, home networking and home automation and its integration. Or check-out Connections: The Digital Home Conference and its Business Models for Managing the Digital Home. For more information and to register, simply go to www.CESweb.org.
Then there’s our Great Audio Experience promotion, featuring live performances by the popular rock band 3 Doors Down. The message is simple: Want a great entertainment experience? Get great audio components! Portable digital audio devices have had a huge impact on the market, but with a high-quality home audio system, your music can really rock!
Then there’s everything CEA has been doing this past year to promote audio as part of the HDTV experience; increasing the attachment rate of 5.1 audio systems to TV purchases. I think we moved the meter.
Hey, speaking of live performances, let’s talk about parties. For the first time, PARA is having its CEA Cocktail Party in conjunction with that of High Performance Audio (HPA). Both will be in our new venue, the Venetian, on Monday night, January 8, from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. PARA will be in Marco Polo Ballroom; while HPA will be right next door. HPA will feature live acoustic performances by Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett, guitar players for the legendary rock band Little Feat. TechHome will host its CES reception on the same date and time, only in South Hall Room S226 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
