Everything You Need To Know About CES

 

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is this week in Las Vegas, NV (Jan 10-13).  Sortable.com has released this cool infographic, “Everything You Need To Know About CES” showing the history of the events, and some of the stats behind putting the show on every year.

The International Consumer Electronics Show is the biggest tech event of the year, with an expected 140,000+ visitors and 2,700 exhibitors who are planning more than 20,000 product announcements over a 4 day period. Sortable.com wanted to take a look at the history of CES and just how big the show really is.

I really love how the timeline shows the reader images of the actual products that were the key product launches at various times throughout the show’s history. 

A few things that make good infographic designs were left out.

  • The copyright.  Is this free to the public to reproduce, edit, publish and use for commercial purposes?
  • The URL of the infographic’s main landing page.  This always makes it easier for readers to find the original.
  • List the data sources, where did the stats come from?  Why should I believe your data?
  • The staggered timeline is disconcerting to readers.  The years should be evenly spaced out along the timeline.
  • Give the Designer credit
