The annual technology event of the year, CES, is happening on January 8th through the 11th in Las Vegas. This year CES will have roughly 4,500 exhibiting companies and even more exciting they will have more than 1,200 innovative startups. Amazingly, this year will be my 6th year covering CES as press and I have a few pointers and CES info that will make your CES 2019 experience a breeze.

CES has secured rooms at a selection of Las Vegas hotels and implemented a new reservation booking site, powered by onPeak. onPeak is the only official housing agent for CES 2019, and they encourage attendees to book early for the best selection and rates. Rates will increase as January approaches, and some CES hotels sell out quickly. The onPeak site is pretty comprehensive and simple to check out your hotel options for CES 2019.

CES has 11 official venues that spans more than 2.5 million net square feet of exhibit space and features 24 product categories and more than 20 Marketplaces. For attendees of CES venues are grouped into three geographical areas: Tech East, Tech West and Tech South.

CES Marketplaces are exhibited areas that group new technology markets and feature up-and-coming products, services and companies. As a technology writer, this is one of my favorite aspects of CES, the innovation is truly mind-blowing! Eureka Park is a phenomenal tech innovation experience. In the Market Places, attendees can walk throughout the show floor and see new technology ranging from gaming and robotics to smart homes and 3D printing.

Down the road, CES will inform us of their CES 2019 app that also helps guide you through the shows. I’ve used it every year and it is so helpful. I suggest checking back as CES 2019 comes closer to download their app. For more information about CES and to register please visit: https://www.ces.tech/.
