Stand Out by Blending In

At CES Connect 2024, our theme is not just a backdrop; it’s the heartbeat of our event. Our theme centers around four essential pillars: Connection, Discovery, Inspiration, and Celebration. These pillars form the very essence of our gathering and set the tone for a vibrant, unforgettable experience. As you consider becoming an exhibitor on our trade show floor, it’s crucial to keep these pillars in mind. Craft your booth to reflect the spirit of connection, welcoming attendees with open arms. Showcase innovative products and solutions that encourage discovery. Inspire visitors with your unique offerings and service excellence. Finally, create an atmosphere that embodies celebration, leaving a lasting impression of unity and achievement. Aligning your booth with these pillars ensures a cohesive and impactful presence at CES Connect, where your brand will resonate with our dynamic audience.


The theme of CES Connect 2024, centered around Nashville country and classic rock, is driven by the desire to create a truly immersive and memorable experience for our attendees. Here’s why Nashville and these music genres are at the heart of our event:

True Authenticity

Nashville is renowned as the epicenter of country music and a hub for classic rock. By choosing this iconic location and music genres, we’re embracing authenticity and connecting with the genuine spirit of these genres. It aligns with our brand’s core value of authenticity, making the event more relatable and engaging for attendees.

Universal Appeal

Country and classic rock have universal appeal. They transcend age, gender, and background, making them the perfect backdrop for an event that aims to bring diverse professionals together. These genres create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere where everyone can find something to enjoy.

Emotion & Connection

Country and classic rock music are known for evoking powerful emotions and creating connections. We want our attendees to experience the same emotions—inspiration, gratitude, unity, joy—during CES Connect. The music serves as a powerful emotional anchor throughout the event, enhancing the overall experience.

Heritage & Tradition

Nashville’s country music heritage and classic rock legacy are deeply rooted in tradition. They represent the enduring qualities of hard work, dedication, and resilience—values that resonate with the work ethic of our attendees in the electrical industry. It’s a celebration of shared values and a nod to the heritage of both industries.

Amplified Energy & Fun

Music is synonymous with energy and fun, and these genres are no exception. They infuse our event with a sense of celebration and excitement, creating an atmosphere where attendees can let loose, enjoy themselves, and make lasting memories.
