2008 Tech Kickoff: Macworld Versus Consumer Electronics Show, CES (MSFT, AAPL, INTC, MCZ, S)

Douglas A. McIntyre

January is always an interesting month for gadget lovers, techies, programmers, computer geeks, gamers, and more.  The year is always kicked off with the biggest event of the year as the Consumer Electronics Show, the CES, starts the year.  A week later we get the beloved Macworld exposition from Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL).  These are both huge events.  CES is a bigger event as far as an entire industry in concerned, and Macworld has been  one of the launch platforms for Steve Jobs’ new product directions.  We wanted to give you a breakdown of some of the events and resources in one central location:

CES, the Consumer Electronics Show January 07 to January 10, 2008 in Las Vegas:

List of some public exhibitors at CES: 8X8, Amcor, Analog Devices, Audiovox Electronics Corporation, Broadcom, Corel, Delphi, Digicom Digital, Directed Electronics, DIRECTV, Dolby Laboratories, Entropic Communications, Gemstar-TV Guide, Imation Corp, Immersion Corporation, iRobot, Jabil Circuit, Leggett & Platt, LG Electronics, LG.Philips LCD, Mad Catz Interactive, Microvision, Motorola, Palm, Philips, Silicon Image, Synaptics, Texas Instruments, Visteon, Xilinx, XM Satellite Radio…

MACWORLD: Macworld will be held at San Francisco’s Moscone Convention CenterJanuary 14-18, 2008.  Keynote address will be held on Tuesday,January 15, 2008 at 9:00 a.m. at Moscone West.

CES has a one week jump so by the calendar alone it will already have more data on exhibitors and the exact schedule.  But these are the two tech events to watch in the first two weeks for technology companies in 2008.
