Arlington, VA – 12/17/2015 – Following recent global tragedies, the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM, formerly the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® and owner and producer of CES®, is implementing enhanced security measures surrounding the upcoming CES® 2016 to produce a safer event. While there are no known, credible threats against CES, CTA is augmenting its standard security procedures as a precautionary measure. Returning to Las Vegas, January 6-9, CES 2016 is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technology, and will feature more than 3,600 exhibiting companies.
“We want a safe CES. The safety of our guests is a top priority,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “Our goal is for all of our guests – general attendees, exhibitors and members of the media— along with show personnel, to have a productive, fun and safe experience at CES while being sensitive to lines and inconvenience.”
The enhanced measures include:
Enhanced Security Personnel
Registration and Identification
“While we know of no credible threat against CES, we remain vigilant. We are communicating with the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and local law enforcement officials as we enhance security measures onsite at CES 2016,” noted Shapiro. “We greatly appreciate our guests’ patience as we work to maximize security and minimize hassle. We want our attendees to conduct business and enjoy the magic and wonder of the next generation of technology innovation in a safe and secure environment.”
