Whether CES Is Still a Big Draw
Whether CES Is Still a Big Draw

AIR DATE: January 12, 2012

The International Consumer Electronics Show is the biggest trade show of the year in Las Vegas. About 140,000 show goers will visit Las Vegas this week to check out the latest in consumer electronics.

We discuss whether or not CES will remain to be a big draw in Las Vegas for years to come.
