The latest Consumer Electronics Show saw the largest turnout in three years with long with the attendance numbers, organizers have announced the official show dates for 2012. The event traditionally begins about one week after New Year's Day, with pre-show keynotes and media events taking place even earlier. That doesn't give much breathing room between the holidays, so the official start date has been pushed back a few days. The 2012 conference will run from January 10 to 13, and as with prior years, it will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
