The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced Karen Chupka has been promoted to executive VP, CES, and Tiffany Moore has been promoted to senior VP, political and industry affairs.
Both are new positions.
Chupka, who has been with CTA for nearly 30 years, oversees the sales, marketing, conferences, operations and management of its events, including the annual CES and CES Asia shows. Under her leadership, CES has been named as the largest annual North American tradeshow by Trade Show Executive and Tradeshow Week. The most recent show in January featured nearly 4,500 exhibitors, 2.75 million net square feet of exhibit space, and 180,000 attendees from 150 countries.
"Karen has been invaluable in the remarkable evolution, growth and influence of CES," said Gary Shapiro, CTA president/CEO. "Our exhibiting companies know and trust her vision for the show and understanding of the tech trends that will drive our entire industry. Karen has helped enable CES to become the largest and most influential global technology event in the world."
Moore joined CTA in 2015 as VP of government and political affairs, leading its advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill on issues including communications and technology policy, patent litigation reform, strategic immigration reform and international trade, and overseeing CTA's political action committee CTAPAC. In addition to these responsibilities, her new role will include overseeing CTA's U.S. Jobs, and Diversity and Inclusion initiatives.
"As an integral leader of our government affairs team, Tiffany has found common ground for Republicans and Democrats to work together and helped shape policies that allow U.S. innovation to flourish," said Shapiro. "Given her deep policy understanding and strategic vision, I know she'll thrive leading our efforts on diversity and inclusion, and the American workforce — key issues for CTA and the entire tech industry."
