LAS VEGAS, NV – January 4, 2016– On the heels of the most successful year in its history, leading consumer technology publisher Digital Trends today announced today that it will present the 4th Annual Top Tech of CES Awards and offer expanded, up-to-the-minute news coverage of the 2016 consumer electronics show, taking place January 6-9, 2016 at numerous exhibition venues across Las Vegas. Digital Trends, an official media partner for the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), also announced that Ford Sync and Qualcomm will serve as presenting sponsors for all coverage throughout the four-day conference.

“CES is unquestionably one of the largest trade gatherings in the world and has broad appeal to consumers,” explained Jeremy Kaplan, Editor-in-Chief of Digital Trends. “We are honored to be an official CTA partner, and our entire editorial staff is committed to helping laymen and insiders alike process the ton of news and information generated at CES. By expanding our editorial scope and recognizing the best new products unveiled there, our audience can stay current with all of the hot news from opening day to the show’s close.”

The Digital Trends Top Tech of CES Awards will also be presented for the fourth consecutive year. Award entries are judged by Digital Trends editors on innovation, practical real-world use, and design aesthetic. Awards will be presented in 15 product categories including automotive, home audio, and wearables, among others. Additionally, Digital Trends recently launched a Spanish-language site, DT Español, which will bestow a Latin Innovation Award for best new product from an exhibitor with Latin heritage. Top Tech Award winners will walk away with a Cyber Stag, a custom 3D-printed stag trophy created by Recon Northwest and a nod to Digital Trends hometown and headquarters in Portland, OR.

Throughout the show, the Digital Trends editorial team will canvass the 3,600+ exhibitors and report on the most significant new consumer products, trends, and advances in personal tech through hundreds of news updates. The site expects to produce increased coverage of fast-growing segments like health and fitness, drones, 3D printers, and smart-home technology, in addition to other high-growth categories. Additionally, Kaplan and members of his editorial staff will serve on CES panels discussing wearable technology, automotive tech, and the digital lifestyle, and will join the CTA for a roundtable discussion of hot trends.
