There seems to be a great deal of talk today about 2011 being the year in which PMA (which was rebranded as Cliq) wont happen. Word out today is that the annual event which usually happens in January or February each year – and which was scheduled for September following the Cliq rebranding – will now be tied in to the much bigger CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in 2012. This is a very interesting development. From an attention point of view, I have wondered over the last few years why they did not combine CES and PMA before. They were always a few weeks apart and camera manufactures were kind of expected to be at both and have something different to announce at each as well. But is there more to this story than meets the eye?
