Whether CES Is Still a Big Draw

The International Consumer Electronics Show is the biggest trade show of the year in Las Vegas. About 140,000 show goers will visit Las Vegas this week to check out the latest in consumer electronics. But, this year an industry giant, Microsoft, announced it will be the last year the company will attend the show.

Despite being the biggest trade show of the year in Las Vegas, Slate.com writer, Farhad Manjoo argued in a recent column that CES is a worthless week in tech. Manjoo says the enormous size of the show makes it tough for any one company to stand out and instead of news about real products, CES delivers bogus trends.

We discuss whether or not CES will remain to be a big draw in Las Vegas for years to come.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
