TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 4, 2017 – PublicRelay today announced that the company is partnering with the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™ for the third consecutive year to provide real-time communications intelligence and coverage analytics at CES 2018®, produced by CTA and running in Las Vegas from Jan. 9-12, 2018. PublicRelay will operate the Communications Media Hub Nerve Center at CES, monitoring news coverage, delivering daily trending data, and providing real-time media analysis about exhibitors, speakers, and trending topics throughout the show.

This means we can deliver increased impact and value to our exhibitor partners at CES,” said Jeff Joseph, CTA’s VP Communications & Strategic Partnerships.
