CES 2010 is Next Week

The holidays are so over, and now CES 2010 is coming!

The 2010 edition of the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is back in Las Vegas starting next week, running from Thursday January 7 though Sunday January 10, 2010.

The show is produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), which reports that CES continues to be the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow, and the largest tradeshow of any kind in North America.

The CEA expects some 110,000 attendees this year, about the same number as last year, although down from the peak of over 140,000 in the previous years -- which seriously packed the facilities and transportation in Vegas.

The exhibition has been consolidated into the Las Vegas Convention Center this year, without using the Sands Expo, with sessions still held in the Hilton and high-performance audio in the Venetian. The number of exhibitors has declined slightly from last year's 2,700 to 2,500, but with an increase to 330 new exhibitors at the event.

For hot-off-the-press coverage, the gadget blogs and tech publications will be out in force at CES, with tag teams live blogging the new announcements.

As in past years, I'll instead be focusing on the larger trends, and will be updating my CES 2010 Summary article with links to these sources and other coverage of the show (see last year's CES 2009 Wrap-Up post).
