Through the Noise #252
Gary Shapiro // President // Consumer Technology Association
We’re thrilled to welcome Gary Shapiro, CEO of the Consumer Technology Association. He joins us on the heels of one of the world’s most popular conventions, the “Gadget Show” which CTA hosts every January in Las Vegas — the only city equipped to handle their 175,000 attendees, 4000 exhibitors, and 1000 speakers. For the CES, they “build a city in a week” in order to house their growing attendance and the exhibit hall which is so massive, it’s not possible to see it all in one week. Mr. Shaprio leads us through some of the newer innovations at the convention as well as his motivations for working in the tech world. If you weren’t able to make it to the CES this year, grab some headphones for this quick 25 minute episode and get a glimpse of what happened this year and a taste of what’s to come.
