CES 2012 is on our doorstep!
An overview of upcoming events in 2012 including the CES show in Las Vegas and the Consumer Telematics Show.
So it’s been another year and the 2012 CES show is almost upon us. Showcasing the hottest consumer products to be hitting our shelves in the next year, and with an increasing focus on automotive systems both from OEM and aftermarket suppliers, it is certainly one of the shows on the electronics industry calendar.
This year, IMS Research will have a strong presence at the show with 16 analysts from various groups in attendance, including Jack Bergquist and Alastair Hayfield from the Automotive and Transport group.
Jack will also be attending the Consumer Telematics Show on Monday January 9, 2012, hosted by Telematics Update which promises to be a great introduction to all things automotive at CES for the rest of the week.
IMS Research will also be holding an exclusive “meet the analysts” cocktail party at the Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino in the evening of January 9, 2012 which promises to be one of the hottest events of the week.
Jack Bergquist will be adding further blog entries during the week, so if you have not been able to attend, but would like to keep up to date with an analyst view of the latest automotive developments at CES, keep checking back here for updates.
If you are at the show and would like to book a meeting with Jack or Alastair, please contact Jack Bergquist at Jack.Bergquist(at)IMSResearch.com.

2012 Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
