CES 2018 Is Set to Host Over 170,000 Attendees

Las Vegas will be hosting the 2018 edition of CES this upcoming January 9-12 at three locations.

Spread out over downtown Las Vegas will be a collection of venues to learn and experience the latest forms of technology.

These spots include:

Tech East: Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC), Westgate Las Vegas (Westgate) and Renaissance Las Vegas (Renaissance).

Tech West: Sands Expo (Sands), The Venetian, The Palazzo, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore at Wynn (Wynn/Encore).

Each of these locations in downtown Las Vegas provide a unique set of interactive experiences for users to explore. The Monte Carlo’s Park Theater is a new keynote venue in 2018 and is part of CES Tech South.

The event organizers have noted that a series of media companies will be on hand to discuss the rise in streaming content. After the vote from the F.C.C. on Net Neutrality, one of the main topics on the agenda should be upcoming plans for Internet Service Providers and streaming media.
