 1992 INTERNATIONAL WINTER CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW
 IN LAS VEGAS, NEV., JAN. 9-12
 LAS VEGAS, Nev., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Widgets, gadgets and the latest technologies available for consumer use are on display this week in Las Vegas at the 1992 International Winter Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The Winter CES is a non-stop event which has occurred each year since CES' inception in 1967. Despite recent economic trends, this year's Winter CES is bigger, better and even more exciting than ever.
 A "must" for everyone involved in the consumer electronics industry, the 1992 WCES event is logging a record number of exhibitors and is expecting between 70,000 and 75,000 attendees, including manufacturers, domestic retail buyers, distributors and international business visitors.
 The WCES is the world's largest consumer electronics trade show and is breaking all of its earlier records. More than 1,533 exhibitors and booths are spread over more than 870,000 square feet within the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), the Sahara, The Mirage and the Las Vegas Hilton hotels, as well as an edutainment pavilion which sets a new record for the largest, temporary building of its kind built in the United States.
 "The CES is kicking off its 25th year in the consumer electronics trade show business on a tremendously high note," said Electronic Industries Association's Consumer Electronics Group (EIA/CEG) Vice President Gary Shapiro. "Many of our product areas are showing a good deal of growth due to changes in consumer buying trends." In particular, there has been expansion and greater interest in many key product categories: audio, video, home theater, cellular, video games and mobile electronics.
 This four-day event runs today, Thursday, Jan. 9, through Sunday, Jan. 12.
 The Consumer Electronics Shows are the premier venues to introduce exciting new products and technologies in the United States. Over the years, products as diverse and revolutionary as the first solid state television, VCR, camcorder, compact disc player, HDTV, DAT, and vehicle navigation systems, have been introduced at the shows.
 The 1992 Winter CES is sponsored, produced and managed by the Consumer Electronics Group of the Electronic Industries Association.
 EIA is the 67-year-old Washington-based trade association representing all facets of electronics manufacturing. EIA's Consumer Electronics Group represents most major U.S. manufacturers of audio, video, home office and home automation products, as well as assistive devices for people with disabilities.
