Notwithstanding Omicron’s concerns, the Consumer Electronics Show 2022 will be held in person. Amidst COVID concerns the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) last year held the CES virtually connecting exhibitors, customers, thought leaders and media from around the world. Being held in person this year the CES 2022 will begin in early January.
According to Consumer Technology Association (CTA), tens of thousands of attendees have registered to attend CES 2022 in person in Las Vegas on January 5-8, 2022. Cenntro Automotive, HTC, Micron, NVIDIA, TikTok, and other companies have recently announced their participation in the event, which will feature cutting-edge technologies and product launches.
Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CTA said, “The excitement continues to build as we get closer to the moment where the world’s most influential technology innovators meet in person with customers, media, investors and policymakers. We are thrilled to now welcome over 1900 exhibitors from all over the world to show how tech is improving our lives and transforming industries.”
Over 2,400 journalists said to have signed up to attend CES in person and meet with companies such as Amazon, AMD, Boston Consulting, Hyundai, IBM, Intel, LG Electronics, Magna, Meta, Microsoft, Oracle, Panasonic, Procter & Gamble, Qualcomm, Razer, Samsung Electronics, Scosche, Sierra Space, Sony, and others.
This year’s CES will see new categories such as Food Tech, Space Tech, and NFTs. The automotive industry is on track for record growth, with over 200 exhibitors, up 30% from CES 2020. TuSimple, which will demonstrate its self-driving semi-truck, and VinFast, a first-time Vietnamese car manufacturer, will be among the newcomers.
Like we said before, despite Omicron’s concerns the Consumer Electronics Show 2022 will be held in person, unlike last year. However the CTA says that safety, security, and health will be its top priorities and it will continue to monitor and evaluate the health situation, and additional protocols may be announced as the show approaches.
Note that the participants must be fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the FDA or the World Health Organization, according to CES (WHO). Those who are unable to attend the show in person will be able to view it online.
