The Consumer Electronic Show (CES) has kicked off in Las Vegas for five days of all-you-can-eat tech and gadgetry.
Now in its 51st year, CES is expected to attract more than 180,000 visitors and will include over 4000 exhibitors across its almost 241,000sqm of show floor. CES is the biggest tradeshow of its type in the world – an annual showcase of the next generation of technology and devices.
This year our CEO, myself and a small team of representatives from across the company are attending to meet with strategic vendors, experience new technologies, and engage with developers, suppliers and entrepreneurs on emerging technology trends.
We will also spend time with Australian media attending the show to talk about the key trends and help our customers understand what they can expect to see in the not too distant future, and why the strength of our networks will be pivotal in helping Australian consumers and businesses get the most out of them.
The key themes already emerging are smart home, augmented and virtual reality, self-driving cars, eSports, smart cities, and startups from all areas of technology.
I will be particularly keen to see the tech developments in IoT, artificial intelligence and augmented reality, especially given we are now closer to the launch of 5G.
