A Recap of the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show

Our team is back in the office after another successful CES attendance! Between chatting with entrepreneurs at our booth, discovering innovative new startups in Eureka Park, and checking out the year’s top new technology from some of the world’s largest tech brands, we left feeling inspired to help build and launch 2019’s most inventive, technologically-advanced products.

Top Trends

8K Resolution

Television technology was a big trend at CES, from roll-up screens to framed TVs to wall TVs and more, but perhaps the most prevalent technology was 8K resolution. It seemed that every major television company featured their own 8K model in their booth. Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean much yet, as there is a lack of 8K programming for this resolution; however, the picture quality was astounding, and it’s only a matter of time before television programming catches up.

Better Sleep and Better Health

From devices that better understands food sensitivities to technology that helps you sleep better to disruptive healthcare solutions, we saw an abundant amount of sleep, health, wellness and fitness ventures at CES. In fact, the Fitness & Technology, Health & Wellness and Sleep Tech marketplaces featured 181 exhibitors total, and that doesn’t even consider the similar companies and products featured in other marketplaces such as Wearables, Baby Tech or even Smart Home.

Bottom line: companies across the globe are harnessing the power of technology to help their consumers improve their overall health.

Smart Home

With 255 exhibitors in the Smart Home marketplace, the market for smart home products shows no signs of slowing down. We saw everything from a toilet that responds to voice commands to smart versions of every kitchen appliance or tool imaginable. This trend is nothing new, but it’s amazing to see how many objects in the home are made smarter each year (think microwaves, ovens, stoves, dishwashers, refrigerators, waffle makers, blenders, sous vide cookers and more).

NICE Awards

We partnered with Lemonlight to introduce the inaugural New Innovations in Consumer Electronics (NICE) Awards at CES this year. To be eligible, companies had to be new and innovative, focused on consumer technology, and exhibiting at CES. The companies and products that received a NICE Award were: Clairy, Fromaggio, Lynq, Mobile Pixels’ Duex, Mycroft, Nemeio, Nuka, Pix, Solaari, Soundbrenner and Tinkamo. Stay tuned for more information about the NICE Awards winners coming soon!

Looking Ahead

We’re excited about all the potential new clients and partners we met at CES, and the opportunities to work with them and bring cutting-edge products to life over the next 12 months.

Our product development, crowdfunding and ecommerce marketing teams all have exciting projects on the docket, and we’re looking forward to seeing the results as we move forward in 2019.
