2005 International CES Show reflects strength of digital revolution

More than 140,000 attendees from 115 countries fill the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center at the 2005 International CES Show.

The CES Show, which took place Jan. 6-9 in Las Vegas, had more than 140,000 attendees from 115 countries witnessing the introduction of thousands of new products and technologies from more than 2500 exhibitors.

Preliminary numbers indicate that the show set several major show records including number of attendees (142,585 – subject to independent audit), exhibitors (2550) and exhibit space (1.531 million net square feet). International attendance also grew to more than 23,028, up from 18,000 at the 2004 CES.

This year’s show also attracted more than 130 top officials from international, federal and state government bodies. The government leaders joined top executives from the technology, cable, broadcasting and motion picture industries at the show’s annual Leaders in Technology dinner. The dinner featured a keynote from Mike Ramsay, co-founder, chairman and CEO of TiVo, who urged public policy-makers to avoid strangling innovation through over-regulation.

The 2006 International CES Show will be Jan. 5-8, 2006, in Las Vegas.
