Thousands of techies from around the world have been drooling over drones and swooning over self-driving cars since CES 2016 kicked off in Las Vegas earlier this week.

On Jan. 8, Laura Bishop, vice president of Public Affairs & Sustainability at Best Buy, will sit on a panel to discuss the opportunities the entire industry faces as we aspire to be responsible manufacturers and retailers.
