Digital Health at CES

For those not familiar with CES (Consumer Electronics show, which they prefer I call International CES), it’s the mecca of consumer electronics in Las Vegas each January. It’s only held in Las Vegas, because it’s the only city big enough to hold such a HUGE show.

I’m sure that many of you are thinking you’ve been to big conferences before. I’m pretty sure that there is no other conference in the world as big as CES. It’s amazing to see the millions of dollars vendors have spent on their booth (millions for just one booth for those keeping track at home). It’s literally a circus and who doesn’t enjoy the circus?

I’ve been going to CES for about the past 8 or so years. When I first started attending, I attended as a techguy interested in the tech side of things. However, over the years, the Digital Health section of CES has really grown and matured. In fact, I just got a message that the Digital Health Exhibit space has grown 40 percent over last year. Last year it felt like it grew 50% as well. Needless to say, there is a lot of attention being placed on the Digital Health space at CES and around the world.

I won’t get to see much of the CES technology until January, but I’m excited to see what’s new. A lot of companies bring out their best stuff at CES, but it’s also possible that I’ll just get to see the same players with bigger booths. I’ll be sure to report on the experience.

If you’re going to be at CES in Las Vegas, I’d love to meet and chat.
