CES Attendance Down 30%

How much smaller was this year’s Consumer Electronics Show than last year’s? About 30%, according to Citigroup analyst Kate McShane, citing “industry contacts” in a research note today.

The Consumer Electronic Association expects a 0.6% decrease in sales in 2009 after 7 years of expansion, McShane notes.
