New TechZone Added to Meet Exhibitor Demand
ARLINGTON, Va. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 24, 2013 — The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® today announced its new 3D Printing TechZone for the 2014 International CES®, showcasing the latest advancements in 3D printing technology from top companies in the category. The 2014 CES, owned and produced by CEA, is the world’s leading innovation event and is scheduled to run January 7-10, 2014, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Following its initial launch, the 3D Printing TechZone sold out more than 3,000 net square feet of exhibit space and has since expanded by more than 25 percent to meet exhibitor demand. The new TechZone currently features nine exhibitors, including 3D Systems, Makerbot Industries, Sculpteo, and Stratasys Inc.
“Exhibitor demand really drove our decision to formalize this 3D Printing TechZone, as it’s quickly becoming one of the more dynamic and innovative categories within our industry, while also becoming more accessible to consumers from a price perspective,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, International CES and corporate business strategy. “The sell-out response to this TechZone speaks to the strong interest in this category and the desire from leaders in the field to showcase their new products on the CES show floor.”
The 3D Printing TechZone will be located in the Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC), South Hall 3, and will feature 4,400 net square feet of space. The new TechZone will showcase additive manufacturing processes transforming 3D printing, from prototype use in the medical, aerospace, engineering and automotive industries, to more compact units that are making 3D printing more accessible for today’s consumers.
The 2014 CES will feature 20 market-specific TechZones highlighting innovation across 15 different product categories. Companies interested in exhibiting in the new 3D Printing TechZone should contact Aurelie Cornett at Email Contact or 703-907-5245.
