'93 WCES OFFERS RECORD NUMBERS OF EXHIBITORS AND EXCITING NEW PRODUCTS

 LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The 1993 International Winter Consumer Electronics Show opening here today is the largest CES on record. Tens of thousands of consumer electronics industry members have gathered in Las Vegas to view the latest technologies and products in home entertainment, home office, audio, mobile electronics and much more.
 "The success of this show is a welcome preview of what we can expect for the coming year," said Gary J. Shapiro, group vice president, Electronic Industries Association's Consumer Electronics Group (EIA/CEG), the show's sponsor. Shapiro noted that both the Computer/Home Office and the Home Theater/Custom Installation areas showed double-digit growth in numbers of exhibitors -- nearly 14 percent and 28 percent respectively.
 The Winter CES, one of the world's largest annual trade shows, is breaking its earlier records. More than 1,700 exhibitors are occupying more than 908,000 net square feet of exhibit space.
 Reflecting a marketing trend among computer manufacturers, several major computer exhibitors are bringing their personal computer lines to CES. Apple, Compaq, IBM and Toshiba are among those manufacturers which are targeting mainstream retail buyers at CES.
 Other product areas which have shown an increase over last year's WCES are: audio, video accessories, mobile electronics, video games, satellite, cellular and home automation.
 New Technology
 RBDS: Radio Broadcast Data System is one of the major focal points of the 1993 Winter CES. RBDS, one of today's most exciting technologies, will transform radio listening into a more enhanced and beneficial experience for consumers when it makes its U.S. debut later this year. RBDS can selectively scan for stations by format, bring listeners automatic traffic and emergency alerts and display a radio station's call letters, frequency and format.
 47th CES
 The 1993 Winter CES, which runs today through Sunday, Jan. 10, is the 47th CES to be held since the first show in 1967. The shows, which are sponsored, produced and managed by the EIA/CEG, are among the largest trade shows in the world. Tens of thousands of consumer electronics manufacturers, buyers, distributors and other industry professionals travel from around the world to attend each CES.
