The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® announced that its president and CEO, Gary Shapiro, will deliver a keynote address at the China International Consumer Electronics Show (SINOCES), China's largest exhibition of consumer electronics technology. Sponsored by CEA, SINOCES is scheduled for July 6-9, 2007 in Qingdao, China.
"The Chinese consumer electronics market is expected to grow to nearly $100 billion by 2009. This explosive growth provides incredible opportunities for U.S. companies to expand their products and technology into the Chinese marketplace," said Shapiro. "CEA is thrilled to partner with the China Electronic Chamber of Commerce (CECC) and SINOCES, as SINOCES enables our members to explore new international business opportunities and allows CEA to promote our tradeshow, the International CES, to an international audience."
Shapiro's keynote address is slated for 2:15 p.m. Friday, July 6, at the Shangri-La Hotel in Qingdao. Shapiro will discuss the future of the worldwide consumer electronics industry and the global growth of the International CES, CEA's flagship event and the world's largest tradeshow for consumer technology.
The international scope of SINOCES continues to expand, with the 2007 show drawing the largest presence of U.S. consumer technology companies in show history.
