'Muted' CES underway
January 2, 2009
The reality of the economic situation means this year's Consumer Electronics Show, underway in Las Vegas, will be a relatively muted affair. The organisers are predicting attendance down over 10,000 on last year's 141,000. The show’s 2,700 exhibitors have taken considerably less space than last year’s 3,000 exhibitors.
Jason Oxman of the Consumer Electronics Association said “A lot of companies are asking us for meeting rooms that haven’t done so in the past.” Companies are looking to do business at the show."
