2013 CES Significantly Increases its Social Media Promotions

The Consumer Electronics Association® (CEA) announced today that its social media presence at the 2013 International CES® will be its biggest ever. With key platforms that include Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Instagram, contests and social media events throughout the show will keep attendees more informed and connected than ever. Owned and produced by CEA, the 2013 CES is the world’s largest annual innovation event and occurs January 8-11 in Las Vegas.

Attendees can stay connected with the latest news, information and updates from the show by downloading the official 2013 CES mobile app and following the official CES social media accounts:

  • Twitter: Stay connected with the latest news, information and updates from the show by following the @IntlCES Twitter handle. Join the conversation by tweeting your pictures, comments and observations along with the official hashtag #2013CES.

Along with staying up-to-date with the latest CES news, attendees have the opportunity to win prizes by following CES social media accounts and engaging in contests. Explore the Floor allows attendees to earn points by checking in to areas or events on the show floor using Foursquare or the Facebook check-in app. At the end of each day, the top scorer receives a $150 gift card to a local Las Vegas restaurant and a $500 Visa gift card grand prize is awarded after the show for the overall high score. Also, use the official hashtag (#2013CES) on Instagram photos for a chance to win a gift card; a random winner will be selected each night of the show.

The CES social media team will also be leading an Instawalk from 2-3 p.m. on Thursday, January 10. The Instawalk group will meet at the Social Media Command Center (LVCC, North Hall, Booth 4906) and walk to floor together taking pictures and uploading to Instagram using the #2013CES hashtag.
