CESWeb.org Makes a Good Showing at 2014 CES
January 2014--CES, the Las Vegas tradeshow formerly known as the Consumer Electronics Show, got the usual fanfare and press coverage this year (keywords: wearables, curved HDTV screens, and Michael Bay). Meanwhile, the show's responsive website, www.cesweb.org, quietly did its job, providing registration, schedules, and a daily feed of video and press coverage to CES attendees using desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
Why do we care? We led the redesign of the CES website, teamed with American Technology Services, who implemented the site in Kentico. Our work included design strategy/concept, information architecture, and usability. Maybe next year, we'll join the madness in Vegas.
