If you skipped SXSW this year, you were not alone. The artsy Austin, Tx. tech, music and film festival received the highest number of “not attending this year” votes from The Information subscribers in our annual event survey. Right behind it: the Consumer Electronics Show.

But don’t get ready to bail on next year’s CES just yet. The January event also received the second highest number of votes for tech conferences subscribers were planning to attend this year, rising from the sixth most popular in 2015. In short: CES remains the event tech leaders remain most conflicted about.
