Maybe a communications firm has rented/reserved a stand for them.

After all, it's Weber Shandwick (New York) who are contacts for Theta,

look at the middle of the page: https://theta360.com/en/info/news/2013-09-05/
I reached out to Pentax a couple of weeks ago and they confirmed they weren't exhibiting this year.

I just don't get it. Are they looking to shrink their already slim market share? Do they plan on staying in business?

To be clear, Adam was talking about Photo Plus and not CES. Pentax will definitely be at CES.

It sounds like even Adam is beginning to lose his patience. If so, I can't say that I blame him.

Well, the C is for Consumer. So no DSLRs of FFs will be announced Pentax is missing a superzoom compact and a cheap compact in a lineup ATM, those holes need to be filled!

With the smartphones on the market, is there money to be made with a cheap compact?

Pentax would be better off making an Android phone.

In this day and age I'm surprised there's any industry "expos."
Yup, they are horribly expensive and not very cost-effective at reaching new customers. If I was in their marketing department, I'd also be tempted to spend money elsewhere like improving the retail distribution.
