Talks, Tables, and More from Our Sponsors at VOICE Live From CES


We're just one cute day away from CES, and the rush is on. We're testing our mics, setting up tables, and polishing our speeches in preparation for the very first VOICE Live From CES.

Before we start, we thought you'd like to be introduced to the rest of our wonderful sponsors making the impossible happen. So, aside from our already-covered sponsors: Google Assistant, WillowTree, and Potato, here's a little background on the ones you may not know about yet, what they're bringing to the table, and why you should definitely sidle up and chat with them at CES.


Who are they?

what3words is a London-based company that assigns three unique words to every 3m square in the world to help narrow down locations. For example, the 3m space outside your home wouldn't be your home address, but something like "cat.soap.bar". It's as accurate as coordinates, and helps people or things like emergency services find you faster. All you need is their app—with or without an internet connection.

What they're doing at VOICE Live From CES

At our little get-together at CES, what3words has graciously sponsored the closing keynote featuring their CEO, Chris Sheldrick. He'll be giving an insightful talk on "The CMO's Sonic Brand Imperative for 2020," along with a special announcement that you can read all about in our next blog post. Keep an eye out!
