At show close, preliminary registration figures indicate more than 120,000 industry professionals attended the 2010 International CES, up from the 2009 CES which hosted 113,085 verified attendees.
The CES organizers also say that international attendance also increased over the 2009 CES by more than 1,000 attendees.
More than 5,000 reporters, analysts and bloggers attended the show, generating significant global media coverage of the 2010 CES.
CEA conducts an independent audit of International CES attendance and the final verified figures will be released in the spring.
The slight increase in CES attendees is maybe a sign of the recovering economy. More important is though the strong lineup of new products that has been announced for 2010 at the CES. Now it is in your hands to buy the shiny new 3D technology, eBooks, new cameras and camcorders. We have already posted tons of Shopping Tips for CES announced pre-order gadgets - more to come this week.
The 2011 International CES will be held in Las Vegas, January 6-9, 2011. We will of course cover CES 2011 in great detail as we did CES 2010.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
