Largest Floor, International Attendance in CES History

The International CES has announced the results of an independent audit, conducted by Veris Consulting, showing a record 27,020 international attendees, with overall attendance totalling 143,695 industry professionals during CES' four-day run in Las Vegas, Nevada, 8–11 January 2007.

International attendees, representing 140 countries, reached an all-time high, increasing by more than 5 percent over 2006. A total of 48 formal delegations attended CES in 2007, including six attending for the first time from Australia, Dominican Republic, United Arab Emirates, Germany, Morocco, and Peru.

With the addition of CES' newest venue, the Sands Expo and Convention Center/The Venetian, total exhibit space also reached an all-time high. More than 2,700 exhibitors showcased their newest products in a record breaking 167,225m² (net) of space.

Veris is certified by The Exhibition and Event Industry Audit Commission to perform audits. The Veris audit differentiates the International CES from other industry tradeshows in that each attendee is specifically tagged and counted only once and that CES only counts sold exhibit space to calculate show size, versus other events that include comp, barter and show usage space such as registration areas.
