Welcome to CES 2019


Hello, and welcome to an exciting week, as entrepreneurs, executives, insiders and investors all descend on Las Vegas for CES and the Grant Thornton Insight Exchange Innovation and Immersion experience.

More than 180,000 people from 150 countries are expected to attend CES to see more than 4,500 exhibitor companies.

CES is the world’s proving ground for technological ingenuity — the global stage where next-generation innovation is launched. This is where senior executives, engineers, analysts, product developers and others travel every year to discover how disruptive technologies will shape and impact their lives.

Here at Grant Thornton, we know how important it is to engage with the pioneers developing tomorrow’s technologies, and it’s why we wanted to be even more involved.

As this year’s CES Innovation Awards’ exclusive sponsor, Grant Thornton offers our guests the opportunity to engage with technological trailblazers and gain firsthand knowledge from CES winners.

This year’s showcase honors 28 innovators with impressive product offerings in computer programming education, smartphones, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, smart buildings and much more. In addition to the technology showcase, guests will also be able to take custom innovation tours, get to know fellow industry leaders and view private demonstrations.

Plus, you’ll be in good company. Last year, the Consumer Technology Association reported 304 of the Fortune Global 500 companies were represented, and just over 71,000 attendees were executives, including more than 15,400 presidents/owners.

It’s a week of learning, connecting and gaining new skills at a modern-day World’s Fair. We hope you come with a growth mindset, ready to expand your thinking and excited to see what’s possible in today’s global marketplace.
