Exhibit at CEA's Sixth Annual CES on the Hill
Wednesday, April 15, 2015
Rayburn House Office Building Cafeteria (B-357)
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® will hold CES on the Hill this spring in the Rayburn House Office Building. In this prime location on Capitol Hill, exhibitors will have the opportunity to demonstrate products and services at the heart of ongoing tech policy issues to a congressional audience. Last year CES on the Hill exposed more than 500 attendees, including 40 members of Congress, to the innovations driving some of today’s most critical technology policy debates.
