We’re just back from Las Vegas and CES 2018, the world’s biggest tech show.
The numbers from this incredible event speak for themselves. There were more than 3,900 exhibitors and over 300,000 square meters of exhibit space. The organizers haven’t shared the number of attendees yet but last year it was over 184,000 and apparently this year‘s event number was bigger.
No one will be surprised at another record-breaking attendance since every CES is bigger than the year before.

CES Las Vegas – everything under one huge roof
The theme of CES 2018 was whoa, and it’s hard to think of a better word. Everything was super-sized, turbocharged and way over the top – in a good way, of course. From breathtaking Las Vegas with its casinos, hotels and every possible attraction to enormous exhibit halls with state of the art consumer electronics including robots, smart fridges, drones, flat screens, self-driving cars and much more. If you plug it in, turn it on or connect it to Wi-fi, it was there. Our colorful booth was among the nearly four thousand exhibitors but we still stood out and got lots of attention. This will come as no surprise to anyone who appreciates the role of online marketing automation in the world of highly personalized customer communication.
Consumer Electronic Show – the place to be
We had a blast at CES 2018 and can’t wait to go back. We loved the opportunity to meet hundreds of marketers and business development representatives from all over the world from every type of business you can imagine. We had an opportunity to talk to the board members and owners of telco, automotive and many other companies. In some cases, CES was just the beginning of our cooperation. Talking about the future of AI-driven marketing is always fun for us but doing it in Las Vegas was even better!
And we will definitely see you next year!
