LAS VEGAS, NV (01.09.2018) – The final push to CES 2018 wrapped across Las Vegas on Monday, January 8th as thousands of exhibitors ready their booths. The Las Vegas Convention Center, hotel ballrooms and meetings across the city plus rental residences were set for attendees to see the latest technology and products.

Bone chilling weather in the northeast, with travel delays and flight uncertainty, made the trip to Las Vegas a challenge for some. Morris Hartman, Big Daddy’s, related “There was a 4 hour delay in New York and I didn’t get to my hotel room until 4:30 AM on Monday. A nightmare and definitely not the was to begin a busy CES.”
