A New Year – and a New CES
It is January, and it feels weird not to have to run around to get myself ready for the early-morning flight to Vegas for CES. In 2021, we will experience CES from our homes and our offices through the CES virtual experience. I will be the first to admit that I will miss the face-to-face meetings with all the wonderful people in our industry. This January issue includes a great column on how CES has become so important as a major auto show for OEM manufacturers. We’re including a contributed column by industry veteran Frank Sterns as well, on the topic, “The Sound of Success: Five Things to Look for in a Brand Partner in 2021.” We are also giving you a preview inside CES, so you’ll be sure what not to miss. If you have not done so, I invite you to go to www.dealerscope.com and subscribe to our digital issue. In the months ahead, we will feature more content that will be on this platform. Also, we will be doing a CES “digimag” that will feature highlights from the show and will recognize all of our 2021 IMPACT Award winners. Lastly, congratulations to our 2021 Hall of Fame Honorees this year. We are happy to acknowledge and value your contributions to our industry. Have a great CES!
