When you think about the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), what immediately comes to mind? For some it might be crowded aisles, gridlocked streets and jammed-packed restaurants, but for many integrators it a chance to see the latest and greatest product technologies for the smart home industry.

But how good are your memories of past CES events? Take this short 6-question quiz below and find out.

In the meantime, the innovation set to be on display at 2018 CES from January 9-12, 2018 will be mind-blowing, and we are not talking about the sensors for detecting wet diapers and other gadgets, but technologies that can make a real difference for integrators.

On Wednesday, December 20 at 2 p.m. (EST), CE Pro will be conducting its “Ultimate 2018 CES Preview” webcast, an in-depth preview of the show featuring trends, technologies and new products at CES 2018.

CE Pro founding editor Julie Jacobson is hosting the event, with industry experts Joe Whitaker and Avi Rosenthal weighing in on audio, video, home automation, security, networking, AI, voice control and brand new themes we never imagined.

The presenters are doing their homework long before CES 2018 begins, collecting information and insights from exhibitors, analysts and other industry experts. They're walking through the virtual show floor booth-by-booth, so they can help attendees navigate the massive spaces from the convention center to the Sands.
