NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CE Week announced today that it has renewed its partnership with ShowStoppers® to produce an exclusive press preview event at the upcoming CE Week 2016 in New York City. Now in its fifth year, the Showstoppers event will put hundreds of journalists hands-on with new technologies and products for work, home and play before the show officially opens.
The ShowStoppers VIP press reception melts the sidewalks of New York on June 22, 2016, 3 – 6:00 p.m., at the Metropolitan Pavilion/Altman Building and will feature all participating CE Week exhibitors and sponsors. ShowStoppers kicks off CE Week with an exclusive sneak peek for journalists at the new products and fall product lines that companies will show to retailers, distributors, buyers and tech influencers searching for the newest products for the third and fourth quarters.
"CE Week showcases the best and brightest in the consumer electronics industry, from innovative startups to some of the world's biggest CE manufacturers," said Eric Schwartz, President/CRO – Consumer Technology, NAPCO Media. "We're thrilled to partner again with ShowStoppers to bring these dynamic companies together with the world's top journalists."
More than 400 journalists attended the 2015 edition of ShowStoppers @ CE Week. Following the press preview at the 2016 edition of ShowStoppers, CE Week introduces a new event, getgeeked New York, where companies that exhibit at ShowStoppers engage for three hours with "tech influencers" -- passionate, hard-to-reach consumers that have significant impact on the success or failure of new tech products and services.
CE Week runs June 21-23, 2016 and features exhibits, networking events, conference sessions and press conferences; special showcases for connected cars, wearables and start-up companies; hands-on seminars for bloggers to hone their skills, and panels for industry leaders.
