Started in 1967, the show enters it's 50th year this January, in the 2017 edition which started on the 5th of January and ends today, 8th January 2017.

BRIEF HISTORY

The first edition of CES was held in June 1967 in New York City. It was a spinoff from the Chicago Music Show, which until then had served as the main event for exhibiting consumer electronics. The event had 17,500 attendees and over 100 exhibitors.

From 1978 to 1994, CES was held twice each year: once in January in Las Vegas known as Winter Consumer Electronics Show (WCES) and once in June in Chicago, known as Summer Consumer Electronics Show (SCES).
