The Philips booth is one of the largest at the show.

The Consumer Electronics Show is a chance for 1,700 electronics manufacturers to show off their products to more than 100,000 journalists, buyers and customers. The show completely fills the Las Vegas Convention Center, the Riviera and Alexis Park Hotel Convention Centers and about a dozen huge pavilion tents covering the parking lots of the three convention centers.

Exhibits range from the small 10 ft by 10 ft booths to the enormous ones like this:
