Announcements Regarding Products Launches for CES 2019 Start on January 6

CES 2019 will take place January 8-11 across large-scale venues in downtown Las Vegas. Over 180,000 attendees are schedule to attend this year.

The interactive tech conference currently hosts a series of events in 11 official venues. CES features over two dozen categories of technology to explore.

Industry professionals mix with consumers during live events. At the same time, up-and-coming entrepreneurs will look to disrupt and set new trends in consumer electronics.

On Sunday, January 6 the media will preview and interact with available products. In addition to several of the events being setup for guests that have purchases tickets to events, but CES 2019 also provides a wide range of events to attend for free.

Automation and Machine Learning

One of the biggest trends in technology right now is the development of automation in regards to employment. Machine learning continues to rise in popularity, and that trend will continue for the next 20 years.

It has been reported by the BBC that a large number of workers will be impacted by automation. Over the next decade a section of retail and the service industry will feel the influx of computer-based resources on the job site.

CES continues to push for innovation within the robotic industry. In 2018 they had a series of robots that could perform a wide range of tasks.

Digital Media and Content Marketing

For the past several years, CES has been hosted a collection of events surrounding content management. Industry leaders in entertainment, film and television showcase their upcoming plans at the interactive conference.

Similar to last year, my coverage will be offsite. This preview coverage in itself is a form of disruptive content.

Content marketing in 2019 is far from dead, and I see it making a big resurgence in the near future. Here are a few reasons why:

  •  companies that are looking to advertise will continue to look for online platforms to promote their brand to help increase online sales
  • online sales overall trends continue to rise year after year
  • advertisers will continue to diversify their reach to new outlets because advertising the same product on the same channel loses its efficiency after several years
  • print and radio will continue to decrease in viewership
  • people trust traditional media less, making a large space for new outlets to obtain a piece of traffic, (an example is the decrease viewership on Facebook, and how that has already provided our outlet more traffic than normal.)

I understand advertisers want return on investment.

It takes money to make money. If I was born rich, or managed my financial resources with more intellect, I would have a larger amount of money for distribution. In return, this would provide the opportunity for more companies to see my channel, and possibly want to work more with the outlet.
