CES 2019 Show Guide

Talking refrigerators, flying taxis, supercute robots and more!

Me hugging my favorite family robot last year, Keecker

The Consumer Electronics Show aka CES is finally upon us, and for the 182,000 people about to descend upon the world’s largest technology show, they’re in for a fun week. The show officially runs Tuesday, January 8 through Friday, January 11, but press begin arriving today to preview the hottest gadgets.

Some mainstays are noticeably absent this year like Gibson who had a full roster of rock stars last year including Tommy Shaw of Styx and Iggy Azalea. It’s also not clear if anything is going to top Intel’s breathtaking reveal of drones hauntingly dropping down on the Bellagio fountains. It could very well be a quiet year where the major players sit this one out and leave room for a breakout hit to come from the over 4400 companies exhibiting across 24 product categories.

Another marked difference from 2018 is the increase in diversity of the speaker mix. Of the 1000 speakers, nearly 400 appear to be women (including me!), that’s in sharp contrast to the zero women keynotes of 2018. There’s also a bonus Female Quotient Girls’ Lounge that’s offering two days of panels featuring high profile female entertainment executives and a special “Girls Gone Walking” floor tour at the show opening led by Engadget and Quartz. The event is impressively sponsored by dozens of leading brands including NBC, Facebook, Spotify, L’Oreal, Viacom, Twitter, Hulu,The New York Times, Quartz, and Google. Seems like progress.

Celebrities making appearances include Arianna Huffington, Jenny McCarthy, Jack Dorsey, Nolan Bushnell, Steve Harvey, Dr. Oz and Daughtry. Additionally, blockchain billionaires will be front and center at the CES Digital Money Forum where I’ll be onstage interviewing Brock Pierce and other crypto pioneers for The Great Crypto Debate.

If you go, please know that CES is not a show where you can drop and rage. There’s 2.5 million square feet of exhibitor space sprawled across 11 official venues that stretch for miles on the Las Vegas Strip. If you’re new to the show, you’re going to need a guide.

Lay of the land

To plan your visit, try to focus on just one venue per day. There are three main areas: Tech East, Tech West and Tech South. Here’s a map of where they’re located and here is the interactive map to find specific exhibitors by name, booth number, or product category.

TechEast better known as LVCC (convention center), Westgate and Renaissance is where you’ll find autonomous vehicles, the home of the future with lots of adorable robots, maker bots, drones, and very smart, voice enabled audio/video devices. Show floor hours are Tuesday 10–6, Wednesday 9–6, Thursday 9–6 and Friday 9–4. North Hall is mostly cars (Booths 3000–9999) and meeting rooms (Upper Level N250-N264, Lower Level N101–120, N201–249). In the center is the Grand Lobby (G1-GL15), Central Plaza for cars (CP1-CP45) and Central Hall (Booths 10000–18999) is for audio video and stunning atttractions like LG and Samsung. Near 5G, you’ll find the South Hall Connector (Upper Level S219-S233) which will save you from having to walk outside if it’s raining. It’s also where the media room (S229) is if you’re press. South Hall has smaller exhibitors. Hall 1 (20000–22999 AR VR Gaming), Hall 2 (25000–27999, S101-S118 AI, robotics, drones), Hall 3 (30000–32999) and Hall 4 (350000–37999) features 3D printing, computers, iproducts, high tech retailing, lifestyle, and security. South Plaza (60000–64999) is the Design & Source Showcase. Central Plaza (CP1-CP45) and Platinum Lot tend to have self-driving cars.

TechWest is the Venetian, Sands Expo, Wynn and Encore, and is where you’ll find healthtech, fitness, lifestyle, sleep, family tech, digital money, and the startups of Eureka Park.Halls A-D (40000–46999) Show floor hours are the same as LVCC Tuesday 10–6, Wednesday 9–6, Thursday 9–6 and Friday 9–4.

Tech South is Aria, Park MGM and Vdara and is focused on Hollywood and gaming content, brand engagement, advertising, marketing and monetizing communities. Many great panels are featured here. Show floor hours are the same as LVCC Tuesday 9–5, Wednesday 9–5, Thursday 9–5.

There are several places to pick up your badge including McCarran airport baggage claims (tends to have long lines), and Mandalay Bay front desk and Convention Center L1 Bayside Foyer where the Sunday press activites are. Here’s the complete listing of badge locations.

There is a free shuttle bus between the venues, details here.
