Arlington, Va. — Although most people are still recovering from the International CES, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) is already announcing plans for the 2010 show.
The CEA said today the iLounge Pavilion, described as “a unified iPod, Phone and Mac exhibition area,” for the 2010 show has quadrupled in size since its official launch last week.
The iLounge Pavilion, co-sponsored by CEA and iLounge.com, will reportedly feature manufacturers and retailers of iPod and iPhone accessories, related products and services, and Mac developers and retailers.
“We have received an incredible response from companies interested in exhibiting in the iLounge Pavilion at the 2010 International CES,” said Karen Chupka, CEA’s events and conferences senior VP, in a statement. “In fact, the original space allocated for the pavilion sold out in less than one week — a CES show record — and we’ve quadrupled the space to accommodate the overwhelming demand. This exciting new CES Pavilion brings momentum to the consumer technology industry and reinforces the International CES as the global hub for the latest innovative technologies.”
The iLounge Pavilion, originally floored with 4,000 net square feet of exhibit space which sold out in the first week following the launch, has increased to 18,000 net square feet. It will be housed in the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 2, and include such exhibiting companies as Griffin Technology, Mobis Technology, Pro Clip USA, Scosche, Incase Designs, Incipio Technologies, iSkin and GelaSkins.
The 2010 CES is scheduled for Jan. 7-10, 2010, in Las Vegas.
