Smart cities will be a new area of focus at CES 2018 said its organisers, the Consumer Technology Organisation (CTA). The show will launch a new exhibition area and a full schedule of smart cities related conference programming.


CES is already a recognised showcase for leading-edge smart city innovations and the adoption of IoT in self-driving technology, the smart home, virtual reality, drones and wearables.


At CES 2017, attendees witnessed the world’s leading technology companies display smart city initiatives, including leading automotive manufacturers, consumer good companies and innovative start-ups.


CES 2018 will deliver a full smart cities conference programme featuring key thought leaders in this space, and a dedicated smart city exhibit area. This will include smart city enabling technology such as artificial intelligence systems, sensors, data analytics, transportation, network infrastructures, and other devices and services. The multi-day conference programming will highlight 5G technologies and public/private partnerships, and include experts in utilities, health, safety and other public services.


“We are thrilled to announce our new Smart Cities Marketplace and conference at CES 2018. Connected and smart technologies are making our cities more efficient, sustainable and responsive through the use of data to enable better processes and decision making,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA.


“As the launch pad for innovation that changes the world, CES presents a perfect stage for city planners and decision makers to explore these world-changing technologies because of the diversity of technologies and industries in attendance, including mobile, transportation, data and sensors, digital health and more.”
