Awards Show Program for Products

Each year, the CES Innovation Awards program honors outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products. The program recognizes two categories of honorees. The first is “Honoree.” This level is for a product that scores above the threshold set for a specific category. The “Best of Innovation” category is only awarded to the highest-rated product in each category, or multiple products in the case of a tie.

Secure Data won the “CES 2019 Innovation Award Honoree” for its SecureDrive BT and SecureUSB BT, hardware encrypted data storage devices.

Things to Do in Las Vegas, Nevada

Attendees for CES looking for activities after show hours can visit “The Strip.” This stretch of 2.5 miles of street features hotels, restaurants, shows, and more. Some of the highlights include the Bellagio hotel and outdoor fountain show, The Venetian hotel indoor gondola boat rides, the Paris Hotel Eiffel Tower where tourists can go to the top of the monument for a bird’s eye view.
