Around a dozen companies with ties to Indiana will be showcasing technology on one of the world’s largest stages this week in Las Vegas. The annual Consumer Electronics Show runs Wednesday through Friday and involves more than 3,500 exhibitors, as well as presentations and events from big names in the global innovation industry. Carrier Corp. will make its second appearance at CES. The company’s residential manufacturing and administration operations are based in Indianapolis and Carrier will be showcasing its Cor Home Automation system at the show.
Vice President of Marketing Matthew Pine says the company received a big "pop" in web traffic during its first appearance at the event last year. He says CES is a great platform for discussions with Hoosier, domestic and international companies on possible integration opportunities. Pine says companies like Carrier need to "play well with others" and the event offers opportunities to demonstrate potential relationships.
