Debrief: CES 2018

Jan 19, 2018, 12:00pm - 2:30pm Samsung, 665 Clyde Avenue, Mountain View, CA 94043 SUMMARY

Members of all of Telecom Council's Forums get together after major tradeshows to debrief the news and announcements affecting their industry. This month we debrief CES 2018 in Las Vegas, NV January 9-12. Along with a Debrief Report from our analyst, our members share what they learned, what they saw, and their opinions of the products and companies that made an impression on them at the show.
