[Las Vegas, NV] – Last Gadget Standing, one of the longest running events produced by Living in Digital Times (LIDT) in partnership with CTA, will celebrate its 20th year at CES 2020 on Thursday, January 9 in Las Vegas. The nominations for this year's awards represent cutting edge IoT devices, AI-powered devices, AR/VR, self-driving kits and more.
“The Last Gadget Standing is a great CES tradition that always draws a full house,” said Robin Raskin, Founder of Living in Digital Times. “Previous winners include Roomba, Onstar and the Palm Pilot, so we know that the audience always knows a winner and that we’re watching history get made.”
At the live event on Thursday, January 9th attendees can experience stimulating demonstrations of the top ten products that have been selected from nearly one hundred applications by a jury of expert judges. The audience then votes on the product they believe is most likely to go on to CES fame. The voting is done using a non-scientific, but really raucous, applause-o-meter where microphones are secretly placed around the room. Those who can't attend the live event are invited to vote for the People's Choice Online award online beginning on Dec. 3rd.
The 20th Annual Last Gadget Standing is hosted by Jennifer Jolly, Emmy award-winning tech-life TV show host and writer for The New York Times. The contest’s media and production partner, Getgeeked.tv, produces the famed halftime trivia contest where the audience can win exciting swag by correctly answering some arcane CES history.
Celebrating 20 years of audience-based awards at CES 2020, Last Gadget Standing places voting in the attendee’s hands. Online voting for The People’s Choice begins on December 3, 2019 and ends on January 7, 2020. The public can vote for their favorite of the entire list online at https://lastgadgetstanding.com/ by simply clicking the like button on the photo.
Judge-selected top ten finalists will be announced Monday, December 16, 2019 and the live audience can vote for their favorite at the Last Gadget Standing event live on January 9, 2020. For more information, please visit https://lastgadgetstanding.com/.
