One Voice: Welcome Back CE WEEK in NYC!
This year the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the producers of the International CES, present the second annual CE Week in New York City. CE Week is a weeklong, citywide event, held the week of June 25 to 29, in which we work to promote consumer electronics and the tech industry.
Participate in our events or create your own. There are many options for joining CE Week and benefiting from our massive marketing push. CE Week is a national festival that press, retailers and custom installers with architects, interior designers and builders can't miss.
CEA Line Shows and Digital Downtown Conference, June 27-28, is the CE industry's official mid-year conference and tech showcase. This trade-only event attracts more than 2,300 media, analysts, retailers, custom installers and members of the trade. A 55-percent increase in attendance in 2011 over 2010.
This year, CEA Line Shows moves to the Metropolitan Pavilion & Altman Building at 123 West 18th Street, providing more than double the space as last year's venue. For more information, call me or visit the site at http://cealineshows.com/.
