The Consumer Electronics Show, which is held every year in Las Vegas in early January, continues to be an important fair in the consumer sector, though increasingly the major manufacturers prefer to announce their new products at their own specific events in order to gain greater impact. Only the leading TV brands unveil their artillery of new models for the coming year. Despite this, it continues to break records: there were over 150,000 visitors (from more than 150 countries), the number of new products announced exceeded 20,000 and the fair occupied over 2 million square meters.
