RCA to Celebrate Its Centennial Anniversary at CES 2020

A Special Birthday Bash Highlighting “100 Years Of Magic”

RCA, the iconic brand known for its groundbreaking technological advances over the last century, announced today its plans to celebrate the company’s centennial anniversary at the Consumer Electronics Showcase (CES) in Las Vegas in January 2020. Having kicked off a calendar of activities at CES 2019 to commemorate the brand’s long-time commitment to American ingenuity, RCA has spent the last several months showcasing its decorated history as a trailblazer in the industry. The consumer electronics brand celebrated its official 100th birthday on October 17 and will host a special birthday bash on Wednesday, January 8, in the RCA CES booth, #12420 in the East Tech Wing, Central Hall to commemorate the milestone.

 

RCA’s in-booth centennial birthday party will be part of the brand’s ongoing celebrations to promote its “100 Year of Magic” campaign, created to highlight its numerous innovations including the launch of the first microphones, consumer radios, and televisions. Throughout 2019, RCA worked with retailers to display custom anniversary-themed packaging and launched a handful of new products including unlocked smartphones and sleek tablets. The brand also partnered with internationally renowned and three-time Grammy® Award-winning a cappella group Pentatonix (PTX) to continue bringing “Magic Moments” to consumers across the country. Towards the end of the summer, RCA developed a year-long #WinNipper sweepstakes that it will continue to host into 2020 where fans can win items each week.

 

“We’ve spent the better part of a year celebrating our brand’s centennial anniversary in the consumer electronics industry in various territories around the world” said Claire Villeneuve, head of Trademark Licensing for Technicolor (Owner of RCA Brand). “It’s been incredible looking back on all of the milestones RCA has accomplished and Magic Moments that have been created for our consumers since the brand’s creation in the US 100 years ago.”

The January 8 birthday bash is open to all CES attendees

The January 8 birthday bash is open to all CES attendees who would like to help celebrate RCA’s centennial anniversary. On Wednesday at 3 pm, RCA’s executives will gather in the brand’s booth with its partners for an official ceremony to honor the brand. CES attendees are encouraged to stop by for a slice of custom-made cake, giveaways, and photo opps with RCA’s famous and beloved mascot, Nipper.

 

Throughout the showcase, RCA’s booth will also display a variety of new products from the brand’s robust lineup of consumer electronics and smart-home/household appliances. Items that will be on display range from 4K TVs, projectors, and antennas, to tablets, soundbars/speakers and smartphones.
