Arlington, Va. - The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) announced that CE Week, the consumer electronics and technology industry's annual mid-year event, will return to New York on June 25-29.
CE Week is intended to bring together global companies and innovators for conferences, exhibitions, workshops and networking events, including the product-oriented CEA Line Shows and Digital Downtown Conference, scheduled for June 27-28, at the Altman Building and Metropolitan Pavilion.
CE Week is a unique event as it allows companies to customize their participation and be promoted within this week of activities focusing on consumer technology, CEA said.
New this year for 2012 CE Week:
â€¢ Eureka Park Challenge: Building off the success of the Eureka Park TechZone at the 2012 International CES, this competition will showcase innovative new technology products and services from the hottest companies and startups. After online judging, 10 finalists will be selected to participate in the "Eureka Park Challenge" at the CEA Line Shows. These companies will be featured within a two-day interactive exhibit area and competition, with live on-stage presentations to determine the top company. Winners of the Eureka Park Challenge will receive free booth space at the 2013 International CES.
â€¢ Mobile Apps Showdown: Produced by Robin Raskin and Living in Digital Times, the Mobile Apps Showdown NYC Competition will determine the best app across the top smartphone platforms. Apps producers will have two minutes to demo their app, and an applause-o-meter will measure audience enthusiasm to determine the winners.
â€¢ 6Sight Conference: A series of executive conferences that will focus on the impact the imaging industry and its technologies have on society, and the revenue possibilities they enable. The participants will preview breakthrough technologies, forecast innovative uses, and spark new ideas and alliances that benefit current and potential customers, participating companies, and the imaging industry as a whole.
