CES 2017 Preview: News, Rumors, Key Dates and What to Expect in Las Vegas

From TrustedReviews.com: CES 2017 is one of the biggest events in the tech calendar, and we’re now just weeks away from January’s Las Vegas tradeshow. Read on for all the latest CES 2017 news, rumours, key dates, and more.

WHAT IS CES?

One of the biggest technology tradeshows in the world, the Consumer Electronics Show (or CES, for short), takes place in Las Vegas every January. The show sees big-name firms like Samsung, LG and Ford flock to the city to flaunt their latest wares, and CES 2017 will be no different.

Media registration for the event has already begun. Here’s how the organisers reckon it’ll make you feel: “The moment you find what you didn’t know you were looking for, when you feel like you might have found the next unicorn, when your eyes and your brain stare blankly at each other and the only thing your mouth can muster is ‘whoa’.”

Right…

WHEN IS CES 2017?

CES always takes place every January. For 2017, it’s on 5-8 January. But you can guarantee that some of the bigger companies will show off their new goodies in the days leading up the show, typically at dedicated press conferences.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT CES 2017

Unfortunately, because it’s still early days, very few of the major companies have announced their press events, and the organisers of CES are still keeping a lid on the show schedule.

We’re still a little way off CES 2017, so very few tech brands have highlighted their intentions for the show – and the CES organisers aren’t coughing up much info either. That said, it’s guaranteed that almost every major tech firm you’ve heard off will be attending – except for Apple, which doesn’t do tradeshows.

What’s curious about CES is that it falls straight after Christmas, which means most companies will have already announced their flagship products about three months earlier. This means CES tends to be a hotbed of (1) spin-off devices like the LG G Flex, or (2) concept products, like Razer’s Project Christine.
