The Stockholm expansion marks the fourth Unveiled event scheduled in advance of the 2013 International CES, which will be held in Las Vegas, Jan. 8-11, 2013.
CES Unveiled events, for media and analysts, offer a special opportunity to meet face to face with the exhibitors that are launching the next generation of technology devices and services.

It’s geared toward top journalists from Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden, and will also feature CES news announcements.
