The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Starts in Vegas

There’s that weird time between the celebration of Christmas (for some people) and the New Year where nothing goes on. People don’t know what day it is and it just feels weird. If you think that feeling lasts forever, though, you’re wrong. Immediately following the New Year the auto show event season hits the ground running.

The 2017 International Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, starts in Vegas tomorrow. We’ve already seen some news of what’ll be at the show. CES is one of those events that you should experience in your lifetime, if only for the reason of knowing why you never want to go to CES.

In the past few years, the show has become a showcase for automakers to get a jump on announcements for the new year. Since it’s a consumer electronics-focused show, it gives automakers a chance to talk about infotainment. They can talk about their future mobility options. It’s a show where they get can geeky because they’re exposed to a different type of audience.

While we aren’t there this year — which is both a blessing and a curse when covering the automotive industry — we’ll be covering the event here on Future Motoring. You’re going to want to make sure you check our 2017 CES landing page which will have all of the latest news. Also, on Thursday the podcast will cover some important stories from the show.

You’ll then have just enough time to catch your breath before the start of the 2017 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. Pre-events typically start on Sunday for that show.

The holidays are over friends, it’s time to get busy! What are you the most-excited for in the coming year?
