There’s been more than 20,000 pre-registrations, more than 200 exhibitors from 15 countries across Asia and the world. The inaugural CES Asia should be one of the most important technology events in the Asia Pacific region this year. Produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and co-produced by INTEX, the 2015 CES Asia will run May 25-27 in Shanghai, China, and will draw global businesses to showcase the latest products and technologies entering the Asian marketplace.

“CES Asia is sure to be the most important Asian and industry event launch this year. We expect announcements, innovative exhibits and big ideas for the future of technology, reinforcing the show as a major gateway to the influential Asian marketplace,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA.

“We created CES Asia as a platform for companies to display products and discuss ideas from across the consumer technology ecosystem, from the Internet of Things and connectivity to 3D printing, robotics, wearables and more.”

Initially the CES Asia had planned for 20,000 gross square meters (or 8,500 net square meters), but the exhibit show floor has now expanded by nearly 10%. Major global brands looking to expand or enter the rapidly growing Asian are heading to the event. Top brands participating in CES Asia include Audi, Cadillac, Continental, Digital China, DTS, Ford, Garmin, Gibson Brands, Intel, IBM, Hisense, Letv, Lincoln, JD.com, Mercedes-Benz, Microsoft XBOX (China), Monster, Samsung, Suning, TomTom, Twitter, Volkswagen and VOXX.
