Return To Las Vegas: Real-Life CES Is On For 2022
Everyone’s favourite trade show is back on for 2022, in real life, in Las Vegas.
The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) had officially announced that CES will once again take place in its traditional location of Las Vegas from 5–8 January 2022.
As the world is not exactly back to normal, there will still be a virtual show for attendees and brands who choose not to make the trip to Vegas, or those currently restricted from international travel.
Media days are set to take place ahead of the show from 3–4 January.
“We’re thrilled to return to Las Vegas – home to CES for more than 40 years – and look forward to seeing many new and returning faces,” says Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA.
“Hundreds of executives have told us how much they need CES to meet new and existing customers, find partners, reach media and discover innovation.”
Over 1,000 companies have already committed to CES 2022 including Amazon, AMD, AT&T, Daimler AG, Dell, Google, Hyundai, IBM, Intel, Lenovo, LG Electronics, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Samsung Electronics and Sony.
Once again, Eureka Park will offer startups from all around the world the chance to showcase their latest innovations.
Virtual CES 2022 will bring back the CES anchor desk where attendees can connect with exhibitors, attend conference sessions and keynotes, and get the latest product announcements.
Even after the show closes, the platform will continue to be updated with new content for even more opportunities for people to explore and connect.
“Our customers are enthusiastic about returning to a live event in Las Vegas,” says Karen Chupka, EVP, CES, CTA.
“Global brands and startups have shared that plans are already well underway and are committed to sharing the magic of an in-person CES with even more people from around the world.”
Ahead of the event, CTA will be reviewing guidelines for coronavirus safety measures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in addition to state and local guidelines.
The event will also follow applicable federal, state and local laws, with CTA adapting CES plans accordingly and sharing updates with its audiences.
