The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), owner and producer of CES, has announced the technology event will return to Las Vegas next year. Following the all-digital CES 2021, CTA said it will convene the tech industry in-person and digitally, giving a global audience access to major brands and startups, as well as the world’s most-influential leaders and industry advocates. CES 2022 ist scheduled Jan. 5-8, 2022 in Las Vegas, with Media Days taking place Jan. 3-4, 2022.
According to CTA, some 1000 companies have committed to showcasing their most innovative technologies in Las Vegas and companies are continuing to sign up. The organizers expect global brands including Amazon, AMD, AT&T, Daimler AG, Dell, Google, Hyundai, IBM, Intel, Lenovo, LG Electronics, Panasonic, Qualcomm, Samsung Electronics and Sony. Companies such as Caterpillar, Indy Autonomous Challenge and Sierra Space are planning to make a Las Vegas debut in 2022. Eureka Park will return with startups representing countries around the world, including large delegations from France, Italy, the Netherlands and South Korea.
“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,” said 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.”
Digital audiences will also be given the opportunity to experience the spirit of the live event. The CES anchor desk, which debuted at CES 2021, will travel to Las Vegas and connect the digital audience with exhibitors, conference sessions, keynotes and product announcements from the live event. New content will also be added once CES departs Las Vegas, enabling attendees and exhibitors to continue connecting and exploring.
For the safety of all attendees, CTA said it will be reviewing guidelines for coronavirus safety measures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in addition to state and local guidelines. The organizers of CES will be following applicable federal, state and local laws, adapting CES plans accordingly and sharing updates with its audiences.
