The annual CES show in Las Vegas – which used to be called the Consumer Electronics Show and now calls itself the Global State for Innovation – is now a blockbuster event where manufacturers introduce everything from automatic coffeemakers to automomous vehicles.

- Swimwear, whatever is left from last summer to make room for this summer’s goods
- Winter clothing, including footwear, as retailers and e-tailers clear the shelves for the next season
