Bingham Farms, MI — For the past eight years, Fred and Paul Jacobs have attended CES in Las Vegas, exploring how technology and innovation are impacting the radio industry – today and in the future. An event that covers over fifty football fields of exhibit space and attracts 165,000+ people, CES presents a challenge to attendees to navigate the space and derive benefit from this mega-event.
To address that issue, Jacobs Media and the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM have forged a unique partnership to launch a private tour of CES 2017 for up to fifteen of the radio broadcasting industry’s corporate executives.
“We’re CES veterans, and we understand how to navigate the crowds to find and explore the best exhibits,” says Jacobs Media President, Fred Jacobs. “The Jacobs CES CEO Tour will efficiently cover the most important ground at the vast Las Vegas Convention Center, and help radio’s leaders experience the excitement and innovation that is on display at CES.”
Paul Jacobs, Jacobs Media’s VP/General Manager, points out, “The key is helping radio broadcasting’s leadership see how technology will shape the future of the industry, and their companies. And here’s a tip: wear comfortable shoes!”
The Jacobs CES CEO Tour will be led by Steve Koenig, senior director, market research, Consumer Technology Association. Working with Jacobs Media, Steve and his team will craft a tour that showcases the future of the connected car, audio and video technology, virtual reality, the Internet of Things, and more.
