IFA, CES, CEBIT, MWC, SXSW, Computex: Where the Tech World Meets

CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is one of the biggest conventions in the world when it comes to technology, and it's happening at Las Vegas. The main purpose of this convention is to show people the latest advancements that have been made in the field of consumer electronics. A lot of the things that people show off at CES are things that have not even arrived in the market yet, thereby making them very useful for people that want to start looking into the various ways in which technology is going to change in the next few years.

Some of the most incredible tech is going to be displayed at CES, and this tech is going to come from about 4,500 companies that will be participating this year. In 2018, over 180,000 people attended CES and it seems like the number is going to be even higher this year! What’s truly amazing is that these 180,000 people will all be coming from a very diverse range of countries, over 150 countries to be exact. The cool thing about this is that it is going to make it so much easier for you to feel at home there because of the fact that it will be a veritable melting pot of cultures.
