On Jan. 5–8 in Las Vegas, CES 2017, a global tech community conference, is expected to draw 50,000 industry professionals from more than 150 countries. The show will feature exhibits from 57 countries—up 9 percent from last year. More than 600 startups from 33 countries will be featured this year.

"The world truly comes to CES," says Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. "Every major technology company on the planet participates in our show. Global leaders from companies large and small, government, media and more convene at CES to share or experience the latest products and services, meet their next business partner, make deals and/or simply learn about the next wave of tech that is transforming our world for the better."

CES attracts several international attendees who are part of the International Buyer Program. They expect more than 100 Official CES Delegations from across the world.

"We look forward to participating in CES 2017," says Art Stavenka, founder and director, Kino-mo, based in London, UK. "We've been looking for the best way to launch our new technology that allows images to appear floating in the air - the new holograms for mass market - and expose it to the media. CES provides us a perfect platform for the launch of such a product to the many industry stakeholders we meet there every year."

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
