This is the 40th annual International Consumer Electronics Show and is once again being held in Las Vegas.  We decided to give a heads-up on some of the companies that will be there, but honestly this is such a large list of exhibitors and attendees that it is impossible to come anywhere close to listing them all without links.

The pre-opening keynote speech will again from Microsoft’s Chairman, Bill Gates.  The opening Day 1 keynote address will crom from Gary Shapiro, President & CEO of Consumer Electronics Association, and from Ed Zander, CEO & Chairman of Motorola.  The opening evening keynote address will come from Bob Iger, CEO of Walt Disney.  Day will be opened with a keynote address from Michael Dell, Chairman of Dell.  The closing keynote address on Day 2 will come from Leslie Moonves, CEO of CBS Corp.

If you would like a link to the thousands of exhibitors you can get it here.

CNET will be hosting the best of CES on Monday, January 8 and you can get information on this here.

Cisco Systems’s Chairman & CEO John Chambers will deliver an industry insider speech at 11:00AM local time on Tuesday, January 9.

Wednesday, January 10 will be a bit different as this is “GREEN WEDNESDAY” for eco-friendly gadgets, and will mark the launch of MyGreenElectronics. org.

We’ll be following key news developments from public and soon to be public companies there over the weekend and next week, so stay tuned.

There is also a myriad of other press events coming up that will end up having some major alliances and partnerships announced in press releases, or at least that is usually the case. You can access the online link here.
