CES in Review

You may recall it was a busy week in Las Vegas. If at CES, you navigated 3,900 exhibitors and 48 football fields worth of exhibition space attended by over 180,000 people. Woah indeed! In the most recent edition Color and Design Newsletter, we take a look back at CES as an event, the technologies on display, and the insights that will carry us through an exciting 2018.

“To lead or become obsolete is the challenge facing today’s electronics brands. Partnering with reliable experts who recognize fast moving trends and changing consumer demands can mean the difference between a material and a solution.”
