A Connected Home
The Home Zone will feature consumer cameras and printers across the EOS and PowerShot lines of digital cameras, the VIXIA line of personal camcorders, and the PIXMA line of inkjet printers, and is designed to look like a consumer's living room in their home.

Canon product representatives will be on site to demonstrate how the new device interacts with Canon digital imaging products to help consumers store and share images and videos.
A Streamlined Office
Designed to replicate a real estate office setting, the Work Zone of the Canon booth will feature products and demonstrations to show how Canon products can work together within an office environment to help businesses and people who work from home handle and meet the needs of their day-to-day activities. Products featured in the demonstrations, as well as in touch-and-try areas, include the PIXMA line of professional inkjet printers, the MAXIFY line of SOHO printers, the imagePROGRAF line of professional inkjet printers, the imageCLASS line of SOHO and SMB laser printers, the imageFORMULA line of mobile and office document scanners , NVS security cameras, and the REALiS line of projectors.

Demonstrations include a live shoot with Canon Explorer of Light Clay Blackmore, featuring the EOS 7D Mark II camera, a live video shoot with Explorer of Light Bruce Dorn featuring the EOS C100 Mark II camera, a "sports-themed" live shoot with Explorer of Light, Peter Read Miller, featuring the EOS 7D Mark II camera, as well as technical presentations from some of Canon's experienced field staff. In addition, Explorer of Light Tyler Stableford, will be presenting images from his American Farmers series and Whale Sharks series.

PIXMA PRO City Senses photographers will be on hand in the Pro Studio to discuss the inspiration behind the images they elected to capture, print and display in the PIXMA PRO City Senses Gallery which will have a Las Vegas theme.
Newly Designed Optics Tower
A central focal point to the booth will be a newly designed optics and imaging technology display providing unique visual perspectives of the Canon booth using lenses from its line of more than 103 Canon EF Series lenses.
