Samsung. Toshiba. Jasco. These are just a few of thousands of companies represented at the 2013 International CES Show in Las Vegas.

At the CES (formerly the Consumer Electronics Show), Oklahoma City-based Jasco Products occupies a space larger than most single-family homes — right between two of the largest names in electronics, LG and Panasonic.

Since 1977, Jasco has been an exhibitor at CES, the world's largest technology trade show.

“As a longtime exhibitor, we always look forward to launching new products and building business relationships at the International CES. The show allows us to stay on the pulse of trends and technologies that will unfold throughout the year,” sad Cameron Trice, executive vice president of marketing and product development.

Jasco continually adds brands and products that it designs and distributes, such as night lights, GE-branded surge protectors and HDMI cables, T-Tech by Tumi mobile accessories and more. Its products are commonly featured in the aisles of Target, Home Depot and other big-box retailers and e-commerce websites.

Location: The Las Vegas Convention Center and nearby hotels.

• Dates: After Monday evening's kickoff speech by Qualcomm Inc. CEO Paul Jacobs, the show floor is open through Friday.

Visiting: CES is open to those in the consumer electronics industry. A business card or other business ID is required. The general public cannot attend.
