ces Attendance Back Up After Two Year Drop

first_imgAfter a substantial two-year dip, attendance level estimates for ces 2011 are back up around their 2008 level, a sign perhaps of slow but steady continued economic recovery. Attendance for the country’s largest consumer electronic show took a major tumble in 2009, when they dropped from 141,150 to 113,085.2010 saw an uptick in those numbers with an initial estimate of around 120,000. The Consumer Electronics Association, the show’s governing body, released initial estimates for 2011, putting attendance at last week’s show at around 140,000–right around the level they were at in 2008.AdChoices广告According to the CEA’s numbers, 30,000 of those attendees came from other countries. Also, some 158,000 ces-themed tweets have been sent since ;ast Monday–a number that seems a touch low, perhaps, at just over a tweet per visitor–I’m sure at least a quarter of those were sent by our own EIC, Lance Ulanoff.last_img
