SAN DIEGO, Jan. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CES®, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), sets the global stage for revealing next-generation innovations. As such, Sony, entering its 49th year as an exhibitor at CES, will bring its best on Monday, January 6, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. The press conference will be led by global CEO Ken Yoshida at Sony's booth, #17300 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. The event will be broadcast live to a global audience at www.sony.com/CES.
"CES is the pre-eminent consumer electronics event of the year and is one of our customers' favorite venues to experience Sony's most advanced audio, video and next-generation products, platforms and services," said Mike Fasulo, president and COO of Sony Electronics and chairman of CTA's Executive Board. "As a global entertainment company with a solid foundation in technology, Sony is continuing to pioneer new experiences that surprise and create authentic emotional connections with our customers across our film, television, music and gaming portfolios."
Industry press and analysts will hear from companywide Sony leadership regarding new developments in sensors, audio experiences and how technology is enriching people's lives through the delivery of emotive experiences, enabling creators to realize their dreams and contribute to society.
The press event will be immediately followed by a lively panel discussion with Sony Electronics president and COO, Mike Fasulo, and will feature two special guests: Sony Pictures Television Shark Tank personality, CEO of The Shark Group and FUBU and best-selling author, Daymond John, and Dr. Daniela Braga, CEO and founder of DefinedCrowd, a startup that is defining the standards for artificial intelligence training data in speech, natural language processing, and computer vision.
