2013 International CES Keynotes, High-Performance Audio, Green, Lifestyle and Emerging Tech Featured at The Venetian

The 2013 International CES® will spotlight the hottest technologies and innovations across emerging technology, high-performance audio, lifestyle electronics and green initiatives at one of its key venues, The Venetian. Owned and produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the 2013 International CES is the world’s largest annual innovation event and is scheduled for January 8-11 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 2013 International CES show floor stretches across 1.8 million net square feet of space and accommodates 150,000 attendees and 3,000 exhibitors. These global technology companies will unveil the latest consumer technology products and services across 15 product categories including the most advanced audio, automotive electronics, connected home technologies, digital imaging/photography and electronic gaming as well as entertainment and content services. Official 2013 CES venues are: the Las Vegas Convention Center and World Trade Center (LVCC), the Las Vegas Hotel (LVH) and The Venetian.

The Venetian, the second largest CES venue, spans nearly 400,000 square feet and will host more than 10 product categories and 9 TechZones. The Venetian’s CES show floor includes exhibit space, suites, meeting rooms, keynotes and CEA member services.

“Show offerings at the Venetian have greatly expanded for 2013, featuring more than 30 percent of this year’s CES TechZones,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president of events and conferences, CEA. “Plus, Eureka Park, which practically stole the show last year as the home for budding entrepreneurs and startups, is returning to the Venetian 40 percent larger than in 2012.”

Several of the most popular CES TechZones are calling The Venetian home at the 2013 CES, including:

  • Academia Tech – This area features higher education institutions that are leading the way in technology advances. Located within Eureka Park, this TechZone will showcase game changing developments stemming from leading educational institutions.
  • CloudBase3 Apps – This exhibit is a new TechZone dedicated to the transition to cloud computing.
  • Eureka Park – This CES destination highlights budding entrepreneurs and innovative technology startups.
  • Sustainable Planet – This TechZone is the primary location at CES for world changing technologies that benefit the environment.
  • MommyTech, Kids@Play and HigherEdTECH – These areas feature a wide array of products that cater to moms and their children from infants to college students.

Last year at CES, Eureka Park received high praise. “Eureka Park was amazing. We had constant traffic throughout the show and it was the perfect place to launch,” said Eureka Park exhibitor Daren Klum of Cram Worldwide. “This is the heart of technology. We were blown away with who we met.”

Also, the 2013 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Showcase returns to The Venetian this year. Here, attendees can view all of the game changing honorees from this coveted awards program. Last year more than 20,000 attendees visited the showcase.

Many of the CES keynotes also are held at The Venetian. Qualcomm’s Dr. Paul Jacobs will deliver the pre-show keynote at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, January 7. Tuesday morning will feature Panasonic’s Kazuhiro Tsuga after the State of the Industry address by CEA’s Gary Shapiro. The compelling Venetian keynote lineup also includes Verizon’s Lowell McAdam, Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 p.m., and a Wednesday morning keynote from Samsung’s Dr. Stephen Woo. All Venetian keynotes take place on level 5 in the Palazzo Ballroom.

New this year, The Venetian features the International Gateway in Hall D and the Marco Polo Ballroom with more than 460 exhibitors showcasing the latest innovation from around the world. Plus, more than 200 high-performance audio exhibitors will demonstrate their products in The Venetian tower suites on levels 29-35.

Transportation is provided for all attendees at the 2013 CES. A free CES shuttle service to and from the Las Vegas Convention Center makes it easy for attendees to access other CES locations, especially The Venetian.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
