Big Shows, Big Crowds
March 01, 2014
FULL TEXT The appliance DESIGN staff had the opportunity to attend two of the appliance industry's largest tradeshows-CES and AHR-in January. Here are just a few highlights from the show floors and beyond: The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) CES was, as predicted, an exciting and at times over- whelming show. According to the CEA, it was the big- gest CES ever, with two million net square feet of exhibit space and more than 3,200 exhibitors. There were more than 150,000 in attendance, including more than 35,000 from outside the United States. One of the most enlightening parts of CES came from listening to speakers, including appliance DESIGN's contributing columnist Gary Shapiro, president of CEA. Shapiro was a constant presence at the show and a great speaker. When asked what the biggest trends were at CES, he noted that there was a lot of discussion about wearable technology (especially for medical and fitness purposes) and in relation to that, MEMs (or microelec- tromechanical systems), which are the particles in smart devices that can sense things like location. He also men- tioned the fanfare around the new curved televisions and 3-D printing. These are trends we observed too.
