This is the annual IEEE SFBA Consumer Technology Society (CTSoc) event providing a summary of the latest and unique tech innovations from the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. This event has proven to be very popular as many people working in related industries do not get to attend CES. CES's focus has expanded to beyond consumer electronic devices to many categories including smart homes, robotics, medical and healthcare devices, etc.

IEEE President, Tom Coughlin and Region 6 Director-Elect, Joseph Wei, both are past-chairs of SFBA CTSoc will share highlights of the unique tech solutions at CES that may not have been covered by the media. This will be an in-person event, and the room has limited capacity. Register early, do not miss this event.
