The 2013 International CES^® will spotlight the hottest technologies and
innovations across emerging technology, high-performance audio, lifestyle
electronics and green initiatives at one of its key venues, The Venetian.
Owned and produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)^®, the 2013
International CES is the world’s largest annual innovation event and is
scheduled for January 8-11 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 2013 International CES show floor stretches across 1.8 million net square
feet of space and accommodates 150,000 attendees and 3,000 exhibitors. These
global technology companies will unveil the latest consumer technology
products and services across 15 product categories including the most advanced
audio, automotive electronics, connected home technologies, digital
imaging/photography and electronic gaming as well as entertainment and content
services. Official 2013 CES venues are: the Las Vegas Convention Center and
World Trade Center (LVCC), the Las Vegas Hotel (LVH) and The Venetian.

The Venetian, the second largest CES venue, spans nearly 400,000 square feet
and will host more than 10 product categories and 9 TechZones. The Venetian’s
CES show floor includes exhibit space, suites, meeting rooms, keynotes and CEA
member services.

“Show offerings at the Venetian have greatly expanded for 2013, featuring more
than 30 percent of this year’s CES TechZones,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice
president of events and conferences, CEA. “Plus, Eureka Park, which
practically stole the show last year as the home for budding entrepreneurs and
startups, is returning to the Venetian 40 percent larger than in 2012.”

Several of the most popular CES TechZones are calling The Venetian home at the
2013 CES, including:

  *Academia Tech – This area features higher education institutions that are
    leading the way in technology advances. Located within Eureka Park, this
    TechZone will showcase game changing developments stemming from leading
    educational institutions.
  *CloudBase3 Apps – This exhibit is a new TechZone dedicated to the
    transition to cloud computing.
  *Eureka Park – This CES destination highlights budding entrepreneurs and
    innovative technology startups.
  *Sustainable Planet – This TechZone is the primary location at CES for
    world changing technologies that benefit the environment.
  *MommyTech, Kids@Play and HigherEdTECH – These areas feature a wide array
    of products that cater to moms and their children from infants to college

Last year at CES, Eureka Park received high praise. “Eureka Park was amazing.
We had constant traffic throughout the show and it was the perfect place to
launch,” said Eureka Park exhibitor Daren Klum of Cram Worldwide. “This is the
heart of technology. We were blown away with who we met.”

Also, the 2013 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Showcase returns to
The Venetian this year. Here, attendees can view all of the game changing
honorees from this coveted awards program. Last year more than 20,000
attendees visited the showcase.

Many of the CES keynotes also are held at The Venetian. Qualcomm’s Dr. Paul
Jacobs will deliver the pre-show keynote at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, January 7.
Tuesday morning will feature Panasonic’s Kazuhiro Tsuga after the State of the
Industry address by CEA’s Gary Shapiro. The compelling Venetian keynote lineup
also includes Verizon’s Lowell McAdam, Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 p.m., and a
Wednesday morning keynote from Samsung’s Dr. Stephen Woo. All Venetian
keynotes take place on level 5 in the Palazzo Ballroom.

New this year, The Venetian features the International Gateway in Hall D and
the Marco Polo Ballroom with more than 460 exhibitors showcasing the latest
innovation from around the world. Plus, more than 200 high-performance audio
exhibitors will demonstrate their products in The Venetian tower suites on
levels 29-35.

Transportation is provided for all attendees at the 2013 CES. A free CES
shuttle service to and from the Las Vegas Convention Center makes it easy for
attendees to access other CES locations, especially The Venetian. More
