The Las Vegas trade show will feature over 21 companies with health and fitness technology exhibits.
Attendees at the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) big trade show in Las Vegas, CES 2013, will see a nearly 25 percent growth of digital health and fitness technology. More than 215 exhibitors will showcase the latest digital health and fitness technologies at the world’s largest annual innovation event. The 2013 International CES will run Tuesday, January 8 - Friday, January 11, 2013. Gaming has been leading the way with health and fitness with franchises like Dance Central, Just Dance, Zumba Fitness, Your Shape and Nike+ Training. The Kinect for Xbox 360 has also opened things up for keeping fit with games and virtual workouts.
“Health and fitness technology is booming, and will continue its dominance on the CES show floor with the future of fitness tech that combines data aggregation, social elements and convenience,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA. “Health, wellness and technology converge at the International CES where there are solutions for diagnosing, monitoring and treating illnesses with games that let people take responsibility for their own health and reinforce healthy behavior.”
More than 215 exhibitors will showcase devices beyond weight, body mass index (BMI), exercise and calorie tracking. The next generation of health and fitness devices and apps offer access to complete medical history, comprehensive biometric data and remote access to medical professionals. The companies displaying these technologies will be showcased in the FitnessTech and Digital Health Summit TechZones and conference tracks, plus Silvers Summit.
Over the next five years, wearable devices in sports and fitness will grow to 169.5 million devices, with the body becoming an input/output device where everything can be tracked, and more than 27,000 net square feet of exhibit space will be dedicated to those technologies at the 2013 CES. The FitnessTech TechZone is the premier 2013 CES show floor destination focused exclusively on the newest innovations and tools for the sports enthusiast. Spotlighting key trends that impact the multi-billion dollar sports, fitness and outdoors markets, FitnessTech will be located in the Las Vegas Convention Center/World Trade Center (LVCC), South Hall 2.
