NEW YORK - December 19, 2008 - NBC Universal, the official broadcast partner of the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), today announced its plans for the world's largest consumer technology trade show in Las Vegas from January 8 - 11.

The Sharp/NBC Universal Multimedia Lounge will also host top business and entertainment industry bloggers, some of whom will be contributing to www.NBCUatCES.com in addition to their own blogs. Fans of CES can receive updates via NBCU's Twitter feed (http://twitter.com/nbcuces).
