CES 2005 record breaking attendanceCES 2005 - Successful event
"The International CES continues to excel at delivering the 'who's who' of the industry at this must-attend event for networking, new product launches and deal-making," said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the producer of the International CES. "These audit numbers confirm the success and international reach of the event and demonstrate to exhibitors the return on investment they receive from participating in CES."

CES 2005 - Attracts top business leaders
Leading global companies in the audio, accessories, broadcasting, cable, digital imaging, electronic gaming, emerging technology, home networking, home theater, mobile electronics, video and wireless industries attend the International CES. The audit revealed that CES continues to attract top business leaders from all product and market segments. Seventeen percent of the 2005 International CES attendees were presidents, CEOs and business owners. According to the VERIS report, one of three CES attendees is a senior-level executive (president, CEO, owner, vice president, director or general manager), and one of three attendees make final decisions about new product purchasing. The International CES draws more government officials than any other non-government tradeshow in the United States, with 130 leaders from the federal and foreign governments attending in 2005. In addition, representatives from 250 universities attended the 2005 International CES as institutional buyers, market analysts and engineers.

More than 2,200 analysts attended in 2005, an 18 percent increase from 2004, and total media attendance was 4,500.

International Consumer Electronics Show 2005 - VERIS consulting
VERIS Consulting audited CEA's tradeshow attendance records, verifying the 2005 International CES registration procedures and record keeping systems. A VERIS Consulting tradeshow audit provides verification of exhibition records, including direct on-site observation, examination of registration systems and testing of attendee records. Total attendance counts are verified, as well as records and record-keeping systems.

CEA - Industry standards for audits
Leading the tradeshow industry, CEA began independent audits for the International CES in 1997. Often, final audit numbers can differ from estimates given on-site due to additional badge pick-ups and badge reader reports. This audit complies with the industry standards for audits adopted by the International Association of Exhibition Management in August 2004. In addition, CEA is a member of the newly formed Exhibition and Events Industry Audit Council, which is responsible for determining standard guidelines for conducting trade show audits.
