The 2014 International CES, which ran from January 7 to 10 in Las Vegas, closed its doors as the largest in show history.

The 2014 International CES was held from January 7 to 10 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year's leading consumer technology event featured thousands of product presentations and innovative technologies across 15 product categories. The 2014 CES set a new record with the largest show floor in history: two million square feet of exhibition space, occupied by more than 3,200 exhibitors. More than 150,000 industry professionals were in attendance, including more than 35,000 professionals from outside the United States.

Owned by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the International CES traditionally draws highly sought after technology experts and leaders, and this year was no different. The 2014 CES hosted more than 250 conference sessions, with 850 speakers participating, including founders and heads of companies like AT&T, Microsoft, Sony, Yahoo! and Facebook. The event also drew government officials from the United States and Canada as well as a number of policy makers from outside North America. Celebrities attending the event included sports legends, TV personalities, musicians, and Hollywood stars.



Consumer products on display at the 2014 International CES covered all aspects of the technology industry, with major technological breakthroughs and product premieres garnering the visitors' attention. Some 20,000 products were launched at the show, including 3D printers, virtual cockpits, smart watches, smart earbuds, new computer hardware and software, automotive technologies, hybrid concept cars, home security technologies, sensors, wearable tech, and baby monitoring devices. Digital health and fitness products, including fitness wristbands and activity monitors, were well represented at the event.

"This year’s show was an energizing display of where the future is headed, bringing to life cool new products from every industry that touches technology," said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association. "One-third of the world’s population interacted with CES in some way this week as we experienced the future. From curved and flexible Ultra HD TVs and next generation smart phones to drones, robots, sensors, the Internet of Everything, Hi-Res audio, connected cars and 3D printers, it seems like the only thing missing from the 2014 CES was a time-travel machine."

The 2015 International CES will return to Las Vegas from January 6 to 9, 2015.
