Owned and produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), the 2014 CES, the worlds gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies, will run January 7-10, 2014, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Attendees at the 2014 CES who download the CES Mobile App on iOS or Android devices will be encouraged to explore all areas of the show through the scavenger hunt and will collect badges for each iBeacon they encounter. Specific scavenger hunt instructions are included in the CES App. The first three verified players who collect all of the available badges will be rewarded with a special prize from CES, available for pick-up in the Press Room at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), South Hall Connector, Room S229, during normal operating hours. A limited number of prizes will be available for others who complete the hunt throughout the week.

Jeff Joseph, senior vice president of communications and strategic relationships at CEA, said: This promotion is a fun and novel way to introduce attendees to iBeacon technology and encourage participants to visit important exhibits across the show floor.

CEA is partnering with its member companies Radius Networks Inc., the leading provider of mobile proximity services, and Texas Instruments to implement the scavenger hunt. The devices being used for the hunt are Radius Networks iBeacons using Bluetooth low-energy technology from Texas Instruments.

iBeacons are short range, Bluetooth, low-energy transmitters that can notify mobile devices when they come within 100 feet of the beacon. The micro-location proximity awareness can be used to deliver a wide range of new, innovative solutions, such as precision indoor navigation, automatic ticketing, guided museum tours and location-relevant offers and promotions.
