Inaugural CES Asia Debuts in 2015

Asia is set to get its very own edition of the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), from 2015. CEA, the organizers of the International CES, announced that the inaugural CES Asia expo will be held between May 25 and May 27, 2015. Shanghai, China, will be the seat of this event, with the event being hosted at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC.) The event is a partnership between CEA and Shanghai-based event organizer Intex Shanghai.

Industry experts don't see this as CEA's attempt to compete with Computex, a PC industry-centric expo held each June in Taipei. CES, in its typical early January annual edition held in Las Vegas, USA, sees one of the consumer electronics industry's biggest gatherings, with manufacturers of not just PC hardware, but also home entertainment, automobile electronics, digital photography, mobiles and tablets, among others; meet, to show off their latest. CES Asia could serve as an important platform for China's emerging global brands in the consumer electronics industry, and make it easier for brands from across Asia to converge at a more convenient location than the US.
