At the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta, e-sports debuted as a demonstration event. This year, at the Hangzhou Asian Games, e-sports has been included as an official competition, attracting attention from the entire gaming industry and society at large.  As e-sports continues to gain traction in the global entertainment industry, it has sparked rapid growth in related industries and hardware technologies. Global Sources recognizes this trend and has strategically introduced a dedicated gaming and e-sports hall at the Consumer Electronics show. Located in Hall 2, it showcases a comprehensive range of gaming consoles and accessories, e-sports equipment, VR gaming equipment, home entertainment products, and more.

These scenario-based specialized zones are designed to create an energetic e-sports atmosphere and elevate the immersive sourcing experience for buyers.

OWS Headphone Products Make a Splash

In addition to emerging industries, the quality and functions of traditional audio products are constantly innovating and upgrading. The more than 600 booths in the audio product exhibition area at Global Sources Consumer Electronics feature excellent-quality audio products that excel in terms of technology, design, and user experience, including headphones, Bluetooth speakers, professional-use audio products, home audio systems, wires and accessories. Among these, OWS (Open Wearable Stereo) type headphones are set to make a big impression.
