At CES Unveiled, there were many exciting products revealed and a few surprises too.

Right out of the gate, we were advised the Consumer Electronics Association had a name change to 'Consumer Technology Association' (CTA). According to CTA president and CEO Gary Shapiro, the name change “more accurately represents the growth, excitement and innovative spirit of the industry we represent. CTA also better captures our association’s vision, scope of advocacy, current membership base and brand promise.”

That said... CTA is the trade association that represents the $285 billion U.S. consumer technology industry including more than 2,200 companies. At CES Unveiled, journalists were treated to new innovations from a variety of big names and start up companies - with everything from unique lighting solutions to electronic jewellery to clothing and accessories.

CES Unveiled had something for everyone.

Pretty amazing to think the event presented just a sample of what's to come during CES 2016 in Las Vegas. According to Mr. Shapiro, attendees of that show can look forward to experiencing almost 20,000 new products from more than 3600 exhibitors.

As noted above - these are just a sampling of what's to come at CES 2016 and if last year's exhibition - which covered nearly 2.2 million net square feet packed with consumer electronics offerings from around the world - is an indication - the sky's the limit! JS
